Dance Therapy

Dance therapy for mental patients

In this story, the BBC suggests that Dancing may be a way to tone the body, but it is also a dynamic way to exercise the mind.

An ambitious project in the UK has been launched to use the power of dance to improve the lives of people with mental illness to help them.

The Reach4Dance initiative will target patients with long-term mental health problems.

Dance and movement are known to have physical and psychological benefits for those with mental illness.
