Art Therapy

Art therapy, as many would be surprised to know, explores the concept of creative expression as a tool to facilitate healing and mental well-being.

It combines psychotherapeutic techniques with creative activities to improve mental health and well-being. We make it a point to involve some form of art activity to channel imagination and get the creative juices flowing.

The expression of creativity through art can help people to resolve issues, develop and manage their behaviors and feelings, reduce stress, and improve self-esteem and awareness. Usually, art therapy utilizes more conventional forms of art, such as painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, or other types of visual art expression.

Besides enhancing emotional being, art can alleviate illness and mood swings. The recent, path-breaking cancer care use case of art therapy, validated by research at the National Institutes of Health, UK stems from the mood uplifting capabilities of the therapy. Interestingly, the study concluded that besides emotional benefits, the impact on physical pain last well after the therapy.
