Challenge

Family resources, including physical, financial, and mental, are exhaused when dealing with critically ill children. Movement therapy provides tools that may be used to balance the stess and pain of patients and families.Classes are designed to aid expression through the movement. Each child participates to their own ability/ some even while sitting down. For extended pain, there are no words. But we have our bodies to tell our stories.

Solution

Future skills - Deep, controlled, breathing, concentration that focuses on relaxation and co-operation, a mastery of movement and balance, confidence, self-expression and trust once learned can benefit them each day, where ever they are.

Long-Term Impact

Chronic pain and unending treatments, financial stess and security, are all factors when one's child is critically ill Movement therapy is an outlet to express everyday frustrations, disappointments and victories.
