According to the American Dance Therapy Association, dance/movement therapy is the psychotherapeutic use of movement to promote emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration of individuals.
In dance/movement therapy, movement is the therapeutic tool used to process feelings and emotions. The dance/movement therapist uses cues from her own body as well as from the client's to create interventions in the therapeutic relationship.
This holistic alternative to talk therapy is a wonderful way to express oneself especially when cognition is compromised. Dance/movement therapy transcends verbal communication and connects the persons mind, body, and soul.
Benefits of dance/movement therapy include:
Maintain and/or increases mobility
Enhance body-mind connectivity
Focus on non-verbal communication to enhance emotional and physical wellbeing
When you consider that 80% of communication is non-verbal, why wouldn't you want to consult a dance therapist?
