What do you do during art therapy? Sounds flakey to me.

What do you do during art therapy? Sounds flakey to me.

Indirect healing: Art therapy is one method of activating different parts of the brain to promote physical, mental and emotional healing from an injury, an illness, or emotional distress.

I resisted an OCD thought and feel scared. Doing erp therapy. Does this sound like i'm making progress?

I resisted an OCD thought and feel scared. Doing erp therapy. Does this sound like i'm making progress?

It also might help your therapy to readjust the speed so that you'd feel a bit less scared as you progress. That would be fine, too. Best! ...Read more

Cd. be a problem: If your son was born hearing english and he still can't say "th", he would probably benefit from speech therapy. Can he do initial or final "th"? It does matter. This could be a problem with using the muscles that make this sound or it could be a more straight-forward anatomic problem.

Why should ultra sound therapy be used for broken bones?

Why should ultra sound therapy be used for broken bones?

It speeds up healing: All day long our bones undergo a process called remodeling, which keep the bones healthy by fixing small breaks, all the time. Remodeling, bone healing, is slower when there's no stress on the bone when it is immobilized: when you can't walk on it, or when it's in a cast and you can't move it. Ultrasound acts like stress on a bone and tricks the bone into growing. ...Read more

Evaluate ; re-focus: Consider getting a professional evaluation of your speech first. Most likely you are focused on a problem that no longer exists or is miniscule. Friends or a therapist can help you to broaden your focus and find other ways to measure self-worth. A family member went through something similar and she is fine. Peace and good health! ...Read more
