Time for Lyme announces the addition of a monthly guest speaker to the Greenwich Lyme Disease Support Group meetings held at 7.00pm the first Thursday of each month at Greenwich Town Hall.
On Thursday April 5th the monthly 7pm support group meeting will incorporate a meditation and music healing session led by Dr. Amy Zabin D.A., a music therapist with a practice at Greenwich Hospital. The music therapy component of the meeting will begin at 7.45pm. Dr. Zabin treats all in attendance to a blissful time with her sounds of crystal singing bowls, flute and guitar and she guides a deep meditation leaving all feeling relaxed and rejuvenated!
Dr. Amy Zabin received three degrees in Music Therapy: doctoral from New York University, masters from Florida State University and bachelors from West Texas A&M University. She currently teaches on the graduate school faculty of NYU and holds executive positions on the boards of the Child Guidance Center and the Anti Defamation League.
Music Therapy is as personal as each person in the group. As Dr. Amy Zabin introduces herself she often asks, “What kind of music do you listen to?” and from there a rich conversation begins. The focus is on communication and supporting a return to wellness.
The Greenwich Lyme Disease Support Group welcomes those living with Lyme disease and encourages the attendance of families and supporters of area residents dealing with Lyme. The group is moderated each month by Angela LaManna, MSW, LCSW a Lyme literate therapist who recognizes the special needs of people suffering from chronic illness due to tick borne diseases.
Through funds raised via donations and fundraisers like the Race Against Lyme, Time for Lyme awards about $300,000 in grants annually to research projects focused on Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases. For more information about Time for Lyme, visit www.timeforlyme.org.
