What is Dance/Movement Therapy?

Why this resource is helpful:

Quoted From: https://www.releasecounselingwa.com/dancemovement-therapy

"Our bodies communicate with us, as well as communicate with others (i.e. body language). While we can manipulate the words that we speak, we cannot manipulate our body language. Our body communicates with us to cue us to danger or safety, comfort or discomfort, various emotional reactions to our environment, as well as to help us manage our basic physiological needs (food, water, temperature, elimination, etc.). I operate from a therapeutic perspective that values our body"s communication as a way to sustain recovery and encourage techniques to help my clients re-connect with their bodies as a way to not only restore balance in the self, but as a form of relapse prevention as well. Our bodies cue us to warning signs of relapse and it is one of my goals to help my clients attune to their body"s messages.
