The treatment is always carried through individually. The therapist’s instrument is mainly the piano with which he/she entices, stimulates and motivates the client to motor activity through the latter's performance on drums and particular wind-instruments.

By special combinations and carefully adjusted arrangements of drums and other attributes, the client’s perception and motor activity are influenced in a functional developing process.

The method is non-verbal, meaning that it is carried out completely

The goal is to, with the special composed music codes, create structural memory-paths in the brain and in that way bring about reactions, unconscious actions, which later can be organised for the benefit of the individual.

The base for treatment is the individual’s

»One can not organise a brain with words – one can not organise a human being with words!«

Simply spoken: From body to brain – not the other way round!
