Taking Therapy Beyond the Clinic

Speech, Occupational & Physical Therapy,

with the help of animals and

the healing beauty of nature

Speech, Occupational and Physical Therapy 

At Nature’s Edge, we engage nature’s calming beauty and the human-animal bond to take speech, occupational and physical therapy to a new level.

Nature’s Edge is nestled on a beautiful 65-acre ranch in the heart of Northwest Wisconsin.

Licensed therapists combine conventional treatment methods with innovative rehabilitative strategies that include hippotherapy (using the movement of the horse), horticulture therapy and animal-assisted therapy to accelerate rehabilitation for functional living.

At Nature’s Edge, we treat any patient of any age needing speech, occupational, and physical therapy. Patient care is provided through our outpatient services, scheduled by appointment for one-hour treatment sessions, and through our Diane’s House intensive program. At Diane’s House on the Nature’s Edge ranch, a patient and his or her family may stay for visits of up to one week while receiving intensive therapy.

Our Mission
Nature’s Edge Therapy Center provides the highest quality of intensive rehabilitation by qualified and licensed staff to our patients and their families in a safe, natural and motivational setting, promoting the human-animal bond. Our ultimate goal is to facilitate our patients’ independence and integration into home, school, and society.
