Tater came to the memory care unit where my mother used to live and my husband now volunteers. My husband wanted to celebrate his birthday there. The residents enjoyed it so very much (as did we) and were so very engaged. We want him back at Christmas!
I booked Tater the clown on a special needs graduation party. The performance he did and the way he interacted with all the young adults with special needs are truly remarkable. My son who usually does not interact with others a lot was there all the time. Magic, fun and lots of smiles. Tater made this event the event of a lifetime for him and all his friends. Thank you!
I booked tater for a birthday party for my 6 year old at the last minute. The party was held on a moving Trolley in Uptown. I had no idea how this was going to go. Tater was AMAZING. I really do not know what I would have done without him. The kids absolutely loved him. My daughter was even pointing out his car when we were driving away from the party. He made the most awesome balloon hats, swords - some were bigger than me. He did magic tricks that they kids loved and also taught these tricks to the kids. There was not one moment in the 2 hour time frame that was not good.. it was was amazing. My friends wanted his cards because they want to hire him too. Thank you so much Tater I think we want to have you back for my other daughter's birthday!
Our family had a medical emergency recently, that resulted in our son being admitted to Intensive Care at UT Southwestern Medical Center. Tater made a special visit to our son and made us all smile. Not only did he visit with our son, he stopped in to visit the other ICU patients and had everyone laughing and brought much joy in an otherwise difficult and stressful time. We LOVE Tater!

Rob Divers, RN is also a clinical performance artist and teaches magic to patients in hospitals using the proven magical therapy program "Healing of Magic" The authors of the HEALING OF MAGIC program are the world famous Illusionists Kevin and Cindy Spencer, who have created this program to bring volunteer magicians and medical professionals together to implement a unique therapeutic method for helping patients gain new skills, while enjoying magical accomplishments.
The HEALING OF MAGIC is a carefully designed, systematic approach to the therapeutic use of magical effects in physical and psycho-social rehabilitation. It is a viable treatment modality that has gained widespread support from occupational therapists, healthcare professionals, and patients.
The learning and performing of magic allows the patient a means of safely exploring his or her skill level while providing a fun way of reaching therapeutic goals. In 1982, the concepts of "magic therapy" were enthusiastically endorsed by the American Occupational Therapy Association.
Therapists who have tried this modality are impressed with the way it captivates the interest of their patients and carries them through obstacles such as pain, fustration, and boredom with the more traditional treatment modalities. They are excited about the way it motivates their patients to new skill levels and improves self-image and self-esteem.
All the tricks taught in the HEALING OF MAGIC program are designed to improve physical, psychological, perceptual, or social functions.
MagicNurse Rob will customize each magic care program to meet your patient's individual treatment goals. THE HEALING OF MAGIC program provides a great structure for beginning your Magic Therapy program. You will be amazed at what THE HEALING OF MAGIC can do!
