Art Therapy in Neuro-Rehabilitation
Even though I’m not an Art Therapist in any sense of the word, it became obvious after about 4 sessions that Umadevi, really enjoyed painting, and this seemed a good enough experiment to take, on her journey towards improving mobility in her left hand. Here, we’re focusing primarily on the fingers and wrist of her left hand. Lots of support from her enthusiastic grand children as well, which is perfect as this means she can continue to do her exercises regularly!
I hope to use background music which will stimulate her towards brush strokes that have a fairly consistent rhythm, and eventually even discover that she will soon be able to do all this without the right hand supporting her left hand.
