The Dance Integrated Healing is an evidence-based method embedded with the neuroscience, psychology, and the positive impact of dance on the brain, body, and mind. Its flexible gentle guided improvisation design makes this method suitable for everyone and ideal for those with limited mobility.
Rooted in the idea that dance is innate to everyone, it incorporates dance therapy aspects and emphasises various healing components of dance: mindfulness, embodiment, expression, synchronisation, proprioceptive awareness whilst including other related practices such as somatics, breathing work, and dynamic meditation. This instigates creativity, expression, cognition, healing, and transcendence.
This method blends modern and ancient wisdom to create an integrated self by accessing physical and mental imbalances. It is a synthesis of purposeful intuitive practices where the body dances you. A multi-pass access to the body and the ways movement can heal pushing you to tune in with the deepest layers of movement that slowly will turn into your own linguistic and healing motion because movement is our universal mother tongue and inherent healing power.
This method is being implemented by the Dutch Mental Health Association Wellness Programme and is suitable for anyone . It has been shown to be effective in: depression, anxiety, dementia, Parkinson's, ADHD, MS, stroke recovery, chronic migraines, trauma.
