New Blog Post: Will Houstoun - Magic is Good Medicine

This week on the blog, Will Houstoun talks about his work with Breathe Magic, an innovative form of therapy that combines the expertise of occupational therapists, magicians and arts-health experts to help children with hemiplegia, a condition similar to a stroke that results in varying degrees of weakness and lack of control on one side of the body.

Over the course of sixty hours, the children learn specially developed magic tricks that incorporate important, but challenging, actions, which help to improve their psychological and physical experience.
