Movement Therapy – Understanding the Basics

It is a song or dance that stirs our deepest emotions, especially in our most vulnerable or emotional moments. The arts are used in daily life to help us perceive the world through our senses. Art-based therapies can be non-threatening and co-created to help us face our challenges and illnesses.

Movement therapy (or dance therapy) uses movement to assist people with a variety of life issues, such as a disability or illness. Movement therapy's goal is to improve the person's cognitive and physical well-being. Movement therapy sessions, which can include stretching allow people to express themselves through their bodies in a safe environment.

Personal movement knowledge

Everybody was born with a sense of movement. Our bodies also have their own language. This sense of movement can be lost in some people due to illness, disability, lack of use, or a change in how we see ourselves. The role of the movement therapist is to help people tap into their sense of movement and express any thoughts or concerns that might have been suppressed.

The process can be compared to psychotherapy where you enter a session and try to clarify your thoughts through words. Similar to psychotherapy, movement therapy uses body language and body language to communicate how we feel, what we think, what is troubling us, the things we desire, what is important to us, who we are reaching out to, and what is most important to us.
