The Transformative Power of Music
Location: Geisinger HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital Inpatient Dining Room
2 Rehab Lane
Date: Monday, September 19th, 2016
Time: 5:00 pm
Place: Geisinger HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital Inpatient Dining Room
We welcome Mary Knysh of Rhythmic Connections. Rehabilitation takes work and dedication by patients to achieve their goals. How can music assist in empowering patients who are in the rehab process adjusting to some new realities? Mary will share brain research that points to four primary ways to engage the brain and promote neuroplasticity: making music, movement, creative play and numinous experience (those experiences when one’s sense of self is absorbed into something bigger).
Ms. Knysh is currently part of the “Parkinson’s Drumming and Movement Project,” sponsored by UCLA and REMO Incorporated. Experiencing a better quality of life with PD lies beyond the reach of pharmacological and surgical treatments. This calls for novel approaches to maintaining and improving sensorimotor integration and visuospatial attention through active participation in group activities that are emotionally and socially rewarding.
RSVP: Please call 800 232-8260 no later than Friday, September 16th, with number attending.
