Founded by an education professional who specializes in learning differences and a former neuroscience researcher who works with clients for Physical Therapy, Pilates, and Bodywork, recess boasts of a 3,000-square-foot facility divided into areas for different types of play, a pilates, yoga, and fitness room, and a cafe with a lending library, magazines, and free wi-fi access. recess also offers wellness services including physical therapy evaluations, treatments, and bodywork, and comprehensive naturopathic medical services. They even host kids concerts! Access to recess is by membership only for families with children under 7.
