In these years of experimentation we have observed how massage practices are important for the physical and psychological improvement of children. Manipulating the body stimulates the body’s tissues by increasing blood flow to the muscles.The improvement of blood circulation is useful in helping to eliminate the tiredness caused by the fatigue of the work practice and to relax the muscles. Learning how to massage yourself is important to gain greater self-awareness and to know how to take care of yourself: massage can be useful for relieving back, neck or joint pain. Massage can help stimulate the production of endorphins, our body’s natural pain relievers.
To remain among the activities that we have had the opportunity to observe in our experience, music therapy undoubtedly has incredible potential.
The alternation of sound, rhythm, movement and silence have liberating effects. The sensation of the produced sound waves that echo in your body create an inner massage that leads to calm and serenity. The ability to let go and return to silence when required helps to learn to focus. Learning to listen to silence and to manage the apparent void created by silence are important exercises, which are performed during the work experience, but which can be developed even more through theater or music workshops. There are associations in our area that promote free expression through percussion and that promote the integration of young adolescents by using the impact and energy released by the rhythm performed in a group. These activities have proved to be important opportunities to foster mutual understanding between able-bodied young people and young people with disabilities, to easily overcome barriers, prejudices and unfounded fears.
“We need to be clear: The quality of a civilization can be measured by the respect it has for its weakest members. There is no other criterion. ”
