“Movements can express emotions straight from my soul.
Words were not adequate to do this.” (Therapy participant)

- improvement of social competence on the level of self-
 and external cognition
- learning to express emotions and overcome negative feelings
- recognition of problems trough our body language and being
 authentic because the body cannot lie.
- finding solutions and changing inner attitude through outer
 postures or movements
- to channel emotions by using music and movements
- stress reduction and a feeling of relief
- body awareness
- therapeutical approach of addiction and pain problems
- learning to permit love and closeness
- gaining self-confidence and building up trust to others
