Art and Healing: Using Expressive Art to Heal Your Body, Mind, and Spirit

Ganim, Barbara

Artists have always known intuitively what science is just beginning to discover: that creating a visual image through any medium can produce physical and emotional benefits for both the creator as well as those who view it. Most important, you don’t need to think of yourself as an artist or even believe you have any “talent” to tap into the healing powers of art.


“At the end of each chapter, Ganim gives the reader exercises to try at home, along with guided visualizations to help relax you into each exercise. Then she provides self-dialoguing questions to help you understand what your images might mean. I found this book the next best thing to taking a workshop on Art and Healing.” — reviewed by M. Pierce.
