At Minds In Motion, we tailor each session to the client’s psychological needs both mentally and emotionally. We also work to implement new and innovative coping skills for all clients. We particularly support the idea of movement as self-care. Through movement the body begins to release a number of chemicals such as dopamine, endorphins, and/or serotonin depending on the movement. These releases support growth and positivity in the mind of each client through tough life circumstances.
Our goal is to support each client’s psychological growth holistically while providing new and innovative techniques that are utilized after therapy has concluded.
You do not have to be fit, work out regularly, or be flexible to engage in MIMTS. You just need to come with an open mind and let us support your path in life.

Research and theories support the notion that physical movement is one of the best ways to increase flexibility in the mind and body.
Roberts, Jackson and Grundy (2019) state that using physical fitness in everyday structure will also increase and help to build less distraction and more self-focus. Persons that have been through a tough situation and/or circumstance repeatedly and have worked to increase their resiliency will be better capable and able to rise through many other tough occasions in their lives (Roberts, Jackson, and Grundy, 2019). Not only will this build better confidence, but it will also work to increase productivity in multiple settings.
Vigorous physical exercise/activity is associated with lower stress levels, less depressive thoughts, and even decreased insomnia. Recommended movement is a staple intervention due to the physiological response that the body has from it.
Each time physical activity is utilized you provide your body with DOSE:
Perceive: Acknowledge the situation and/or objective at hand.
Prepare: Research and implement a plan of action.
Perform: Action-oriented behaviors to complete the objectives.
Persevere: Once objective is complete, analyze, regroup and move on.
