Kim will be discussing Neurofascial Process (NFP), a hand-on technique from the field of Integrative Manual Therapy, that is easy to do on yourself or with the help of a parent or friend. The term describes the benefits to the brain and nervous system (Neuro), the connective tissue, fascia, bones and ligaments (Fascial) and emotions (Process).

"The Theory of Human Scale Development is introduced. This theory emphasizes that quality of life depends as much upon self-actualization and relation building as on physical health."
The speech issue, "aphasia results in 'loss of self'. The situation is exacerbated by inadequate healthcare communication strategies. Aphasia has a negative impact on relationships by denying access to support networks, which results in isolation. The individual's predicament is worsened by negative nursing responses. Positive nursing strategies, which alleviate effects of aphasia on individuals' social health, are investigated. The paper concludes by emphasizing that fundamental human needs involve social and psychological as well as physical aspects. " --Thompson, J. and M. McKeever (2014).
