Dance/Movement Therapy

"The body says what words cannot"


Dance/movement therapy (DMT) is defined by the American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA) as the psychotherapeutic use of movement to promote emotional, social, cognitive, and physical integration of the individual, for the purpose of improving health and well-being.

It is a holistic approach to healing, based on the empirically supported assertion that mind, body, and spirit are inseparable and interconnected; changes in the body reflect changes in the mind and vice versa.

"Movement is a basic form of communication that provides us with opportunities for socialization, the development of community and the experience of expressing our aliveness and our innermost thoughts and feelings." - Nana Koch

Dance/movement therapy, as a wellbeing approach, links body and feelings through movement and creates new experiences and synaptic connections. In dance/movement therapy you have a chance to move during your sessions, integrate movement with verbal processing, and curate your movements for self-reflection. Move to re-enliven yourself.
