DMT involves the integration of movement as a medium for non-verbal communication and expression during a psychotherapy session. In therapy, dance and movement are used as scientifically-based somatic, body-centered non-intrusive approaches that engage individuals in the process of healing, facilitating the discovery or re-connection with ones embodied self.
