Dolphin therapy helps children and adults

Smiling, making a sound, lifting an arm – reactions elicited by the presence of and the encounter with the dolphins. As early as in 2003, an independent European study was able to show the positive impact dolphins can have within the scope of an animal-assisted therapy. Ever since, scientific studies have repeatedly confirmed the efficacy of this therapy form for many physical and mental disabilities. The dolphins, with their playful ways, are able to release children and adults from their isolation and apathy. Persons affected will be more alert and better able to concentrate and they can use the skills they already possess more effectively.

“delfine therapieren menschen“ have decades of experience with the intensive dolphin-assisted therapy. Since our founding in 1996, we have been counselling and supporting patients and their families. This animal-assisted therapy with dolphins can enable a successful rehabilitation for many diagnoses. It is a proven effective therapy, that can support long-term sustainable individual improvements and give hope for a more self-reliant way of living. A species-appropriate living environment for the dolphins is the basis of the therapy concept we have developed. The therapy centers that work with us keep the animals in their natural environment in separate lagoons. We strictly reject the idea of keeping animals in tanks.
