Expressive movement therapy offered for cancer patients, survivors

By From page A4 | February 05, 2014

Cancer patients and survivors are invited to participate in free expressive movement therapy classes taught by Nandi Szabo, a registered dance movement therapist and expressive arts therapist. The classes will meet from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Thursdays, Feb. 6 through May 1, at the Davis Holistic Health Center, 1403 Fifth St., Suite B.

The program is sponsored by the Sutter Cancer Center in Sacramento through funding from the Sutter Medical Center Foundation.

Expressive therapy focuses on healing through a creative lens. Based on the interrelationship of body, mind and emotion, it uses movement, art, writing and music to further the emotional, physical and spiritual integration of the individual, a news release said.

This program will provide relaxation, stress reduction and insight to its participants. The goals of the program are to enhance wellness and explore how to navigate through the complex emotions and concerns of the cancer journey with a sense of empowerment.
