Summyr tells us about Alternative Therapy

 Expressive Art is about connecting the whole body, this type of therapy embraces all the senses to move beyond the conscious thought to tap into our deepest desires in a safe and nurturing environment.

How it Works…
Sessions typically include some discussion with the therapist about a current issue you’re experiencing or a past experience that is difficult to move on from. From there, a variety of art forms are on offer, from visual arts including drawing, sculpting, painting and collages to an expressive art such as drama/movement or storytelling.
Working richly with the five senses, the art allows the brain to arrive at a meditative state and be completely present, releasing the unconscious, which Summyr describes as ‘the language of the Soul’.

Why it Helps…
“When you connect to your body through the sensory motor system, you also connect to your own innate wisdom,” Summyr explains. “From there, Expressive Art Therapy can discharge any trauma we are holding onto in our nervous system and create new neural pathways.”
