Multiple Sclerosis

Switch2Move Multiple Sclerosis by Andrew Greenwoodis the first movement program especially designed specifically for Multiple sclerosis and it is commissioned by Genzyme (Sanofi Company) in collaboration with Dance for Health Foundation. The program has been under scientific study from the VU University Amsterdam in collaboration with Dance for Health and Het Nationale Ballet (Amsterdam).

The program is designed with the aim to enhance the physical and mental state of people with Multiple sclerosis based on a biopsychosocial approach. People can experience the art of movement from their wheelchairs or not, and feel more energetic, less fatigue, less pain, more aware and confident of their capabilities. The aim is to provide opportunities in going beyond what ones considers as limitations in Multiple Sclerosis and learn to experience ones’ best self.

This education program for Switch2Move practitioners offers the appropriate knowledge, guidance and instructions in how to create and apply movement sessions in a structured fusion of dance, meditation and movement therapy.

 

Parkinson’s

Switch2Move Parkinson’s  This program is suitable for people that have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s.

In this program the participants can  expect to feel better with their physical condition through a series of movement combinations and music that is especially designed to address issues like: focus, memory, balance, stiffness, freezing, walking and a lot more. Our  approach  is not symptom based. Which means that any benefit comes from our intention to create a positive experience for the person that in result enhances the general physical and mental wellbeing.That means that we are focusing into creating a positive experience for the person where the participants can regain confidence, trust and motivation to re-learn their bodies and their movement skills.

The method is based on dance, movement analysis,  bioenergetics and mindfulness.

 

Dementia

Switch2Move Dementia  This program is suitable for people in early stages or more progressed stages of Dementia and eldelry.

There has been substantial research into the effects of dance therapy and music in people with and without dementia. The benefits of dance include improved cognition (through increasing neurogenesis and neural pathways via many mediators including BDNF), memory, mood, stress relief, self-confidence and social and psychological well-being. Dance integrates several brain functions simultaneously including kinaesthetic, musical and emotional, which enhances neuronal connectivity. The combined power of dance, music and physical contact provides a proven, positive and cost-effective intervention for people in care homes and the community.

The method is based on dance, music for dementia, movement analysis,  bioenergetics, neurocognition, positive psychology and aptonomy.
