HANDSZONE BUSINESS WEBSITE
By Konrad Craig
HANDSZONE became a business operation in 1998. It started as a research project to gauge the benefits of Music on individuals. The research had been stemming from studies in this field since 1987.
As formal research on individuals with a psychiatric condition incarcerated in a forensic psychiatric unit, it became a pilot project which proved to be extremely successful as a model of practice. It became known as "Music in Counselling" . From there it went to "Music in Palliative Care " between 1990 and 1999.
Various forms of this project have been adopted in the Acute Medical Centres around Adelaide , South Australia. They have proved entirely successful and part of the research study findings.
In 1998 it became known as HANDSZONE becoming a private practice operation. In 1999 the project, as part of the Masters in Social Science degree , became known as "DANCING WITH FLOWERS" which forms part of the private practice and operational through florists around Adelaide. This also involves the decoration of picture frames, books, Christmas Cards, Business Cards and various other household items.
