Dolphin Assisted Therapy Programs
Our flagship program, Dolphin Assisted Therapy (DAT), continues the tradition of our shared sense of Dr. Upledger's vision for respectful, free and willing interaction between dolphins and humans with intentions for healing. It is intriguing that the dolphins' therapeutic interactions with humans is completely natural. The dolphins are free to interact, or not, with the clients and therapy teams.
The dolphins' free and willing participation ensures a unique experience for each client.
We invite you (as a client or therapist) to attend a Dolphin Assisted Therapy Program where, like the Comprehensive Therapy Programs, CranioSacral Therapy is used to integrate multiple modalities of treatment in a 4-day program that effectively and profoundly facilitates healing.
Currently, these programs are held in Freeport, Grand Bahamas. The programs are staffed by our diverse community of therapists.
The facility where the dolphin interaction portion of these programs happens is one of the top in the world, with truly caring management and trainers. The dolphins' well-being is put first at all times.
Dolphin Assisted Therapy Programs have the potential to be a truly life altering experience. For others, it is a start or a significant part of the process of healing and experiencing life.
The Dolphin Assisted Therapy Programs incorporate many modalities of healthcare, both traditional and innovative. All Integrative Intentions therapists are trained in Upledger CranioSacral Therapy (CST) and many are Techniques and Diplomate certified by the Upledger Institute. Each therapist blends their unique nature, skills and healing modalities with integrative intentions.
These programs are client centered, a hands-on holistic process where the therapy is guided by the healing inner wisdom of the client. Usually, clients are referred to our programs by a CranioSacral therapist who will have determined its suitability with the client prior to attending.
A deposit is required with registration in order to confirm your place in the program. After you have registered, you will receive specific information about the program you are attending.
Integrative Intentions has been facilitating these programs since 2004 and we deeply appreciate the opportunity to share them with you.
We invite you to participate in these programs and classes which provide a unique opportunity for inter-species connections and cooperation that continue Dr. Upledger’s vision for free and willing interactions with dolphins with the intention of healing.
