A love of music and dance led Jill R. Baron, MD, MS, FAAFP, IFM, ABIHM, NCMP, to investigate the research on the clinical application of dance as an integrative therapy. Dr. Baron discovered that many dance types, including Zumba® and tango, affect both neurologic and psychologic health, and can help people who have a wide range of medical challenges. Now, Dr. Baron shares her findings and insights on dance with others, helping both integrative medicine practitioners and patients take a new view of dance as an integrative therapy.
