Switch2Move, developed by Andrew Greenwood, is a movement practice and artistic process that aims to cultivate personal well-being through the art of movement. The programme focuses on motivation, integration on the physical, mental and social levels and stimulates personal growth. The specific programmes that have emerged from the Switch2move approach are also beneficial for people with physical and/or mental impairments, such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.

This workshop is a continuing education programme. Participants will be introduced to the basic components of the neuromuscular stimulation tool S.I.M.
