With my method arts, music and movement are used to expand the brain till one ends up in having a better and more elastic brain than people with no Alzheimer of dementia. It’s not different from the way Leonardo Da Vinci or people like him worked to stimulate their creativity. The orthodox art therapy method used nowadays is OK but not all that efficient. It’s more an entertainment or play rather than an full healing method. If one wants to heal one has to work at it to get results.
