Labyrinth Therapy

Labyrinth Therapy utilizes an ancient symbol that works well as a therapeutic tool to encourage mental focus through meditation or prayer, which can be instrumental in releasing mental and physical tension.  Many recognize the labyrinth as a metaphor for the path we walk through life and as an appropriate symbol that creates sacred space for enhancing psychological and spiritual growth.  As a therapeutic tool, the labyrinth provides willing clients an opportunity to examine problems, questions, or issues from various perspectives while also affording time and space for personal reflection before making a decision.  The inward labyrinth journey becomes a time for examining a question, whereas the return journey allows time for examining a possible solution, any of which the client might explore further in therapy while working toward implementation of a satisfactory solution.  Because it is both kinesthetic and introspective, the labyrinth walk functions as a complete mind-body integrative activity.
