What is Art Therapy?
Art therapy is one of psychotherapy’s original embodied and experiential professions, and it recruits a person’s eyes and hands (visual perception and somatosensory processing) to rouse and engage creative mental activity at physical, emotional, and intellectual levels. The end result is an integrated you, as your nervous system learns to achieve harmony and flow between your inner world and the world around you.

Wherever you are, when you get help from an Art Therapist you should make sure that they’re licensed!
