MOVEMENT THERAPY

 

Empowering the Emotional Space through Movement

Movement Therapy is based on the scientific concept that the body and mind are in constant reciprocal interaction. Motion influences body image and leads from a change in body image to a change in psychic attitude.

Movement Therapy works from the premise that the mind and the body are inseparable, such that a change in one effects a change in the other. It is a kind of psychotherapy based on the concept of using the body as a healing force for emotional distress.

Movement Therapy outwardly projects the individual’s internal expression, creating an outlet for any internal imbalances. It enhances the mental, physical, emotional, cognitive and social well-being of an individual. Movement is a statement of one’s feelings, energy and desire to externalise internal expression. External situations are constantly changing. MTs help clients to adapt their inner emotions in relationship to external stressors.
