The goal of our Dance Therapy sessions is to integrate the emotional and physical balance that can be found through movement. Dance Therapy, which is a form of expressive therapy, is based in the notion that movement and dance strengthen the connection between the mind and body, promoting both physical and mental healing and well-being.
THE DASHA® STRATEGY
DASHA®’s Dance Therapists work with individuals of all ages, groups, and even families and focuses on helping clients improve self-esteem and body image, develop effective communication skills, expand movement ability, gain insight into patterns of behavior, and enhance coping and stress management capabilities.
