“Health is a large word. It embraces not only the body, but the mind and spirit as well.”
– James H. West

One of our Focus Areas is to work for individuals both adults and children who are currently undergoing treatment or are survivors of cancer. This module also reaches out to the care givers.

Music and Meditation TherapyMUSIC from ancient times, is widely used to enhance well-being. Music appears to exert direct physiological effects through the autonomic nervous system. Music is a low-cost intervention that often reduces surgical, procedural, acute, and chronic pain. Music also improves the quality of life for patients receiving palliative care, enhancing a sense of comfort and relaxation. Providing music to caregivers may be a cost-effective and enjoyable strategy to improve empathy, compassion, and relationship-centered care.

MEDITATION has the potential to be implemented as a beneficial supportive/adjunct treatment that is relatively cost-effective, may be practiced as a self-care behavioral treatment, provides a life-long behavioral skill, enhances self-efficacy and self-confidence and is often associated with additional positive side effects.

According to the American Dance Therapy Association, DMT is defined as, “The Psychotherapeutic use of movement and dance through which a person can engage creatively in a process to further their emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration”.

Dance Movement TherapyDMT offers individuals an opportunity to be expressive, release tension and trauma, find their inner voices and grow in independence. It can be practiced both at an individual level and in group settings within the health, education, social service and private sectors.

DMT is founded on the principle that movement reflects an individual’s patterns of thinking and feeling.It can also help participants shift to a more positive self-image. Less satisfying behaviors can be transformed into healthier forms of expression and social struggles can be worked out through alternative movement outlets. Psycho-physical techniques can provide new hope and possibilities for people who are suffering from psychological and social hardships.

DMT has three primary influences such as modern dance, movement analysis and developing.

THIS IS NOT A DANCE IN THE TRADITIONAL SENSE…WHAT IT ENTAILS IS MOVING THE BODY TO CERTAIN MUSIC PATTERNS THAT IS THERAPEUTIC.
