About Fermata

A Fermata is a musical symbol for a pause, or hold, in time. Illness and injury often force a pause in life, interrupting one’s ability to perform daily activities of living. Fermata provides a space for rehabilitation and healing, in order to return to one’s optimal level of functional independence.
