“Rethink recovery” is about looking in a different direction than traditional pharma-based solutions. It’s about being progressive with the natural tools we have and using them in an effective manner. Hemp is a healing plant, and its extract can be used to assist with recovery and optimize overall health.
Whether you are recovering from injuries sustained in high impact sports or managing a physical condition, we believe that while the recovery process may be different, the elements are synonymous. Every living being needs a solution for pain, sleep, and mental health management. The most important variables in the recovery process are rest, relaxation and calming the nervous system. By implementing BodyChek products into a larger wellness regimen, our hope is that individuals will reclaim their health and experience a better road to recovery.
Bodychek Wellness began as a play on words. In hockey, the most physical version of checking is the “body check”. Bodychek Wellness is about applying a “checking mindset” when it comes to our physical health. It’s about achieving wellness by being mindful, tuning in and listening to the body.
Bodychek Wellness products are designed to defend and support total wellness. Our company was built on the belief that the road to recovery begins with natural solutions, and we proudly stand behind the healing powers of hemp. Our mission is to optimize everyday performance and challenge individuals to rethink the healing process by creating products that promote wellness, balance, and recovery.
Founded in 2017 by former NHL Enforcer for the Philadelphia Flyers, Riley Cote, BodyChek Wellness is a line of premium hemp extract products designed to assist with physical health, wellness, and the recovery process.
Cote began rethinking the recovery process during his professional career in the NHL. His hockey days were spent getting his hands dirty the “old fashion way”, fighting on the ice as an Enforcer. With more than 50 fights and 411 penalty minutes, being a physical player was part of his role; however, making the opponent “feel his presence” came at a cost. Putting his body on the line and sacrificing his wellbeing for the betterment of his team resulted in constant physical pain, countless concussions, mental anxiety and a laundry list of bodily injuries.
Rather than relying on pharmaceuticals for pain management, Cote turned to hemp-based solutions. In addition to alleviating his physical pain, cannabidiol provides Cote with much-needed relief from anxiety, nervousness, and insomnia.
While Cote successfully managed his ailments with hemp derived products, he continued to watch teammates and other professional athletes experience similar issues to what he had been battling for years. Outside of the professional sports world, he began to realize how so many of the struggles professional athletes deal with are no different than the struggles shared by millions of individuals around the world. Tired of watching countless lives destroyed and defeated, Cote made the decision to take his “non-traditional” approach to recovery through hemp-based solutions to the masses.
