My overcoming Diary

The last few years have been tough physically and emotionally. Art has been my medicine to help overcome along them. Some time ago, the potential of the arts was recognized by the WHO, which created a strategic plan integrating the arts as a complementary therapeutic tool, in prevention, treatment and recovery from diseases. In this section I expose my most intimate works with the hope of encouraging everyone who is going through a delicate moment of health to use it.

In the case of chronic muscles, it is constantly tense, which causes a decrease in blood flow to the muscles, thus reducing the supply of oxygen and nutrients, generating a greater accumulation of toxic waste and lactic acid. which entails a limitation of movement. Stress is involved in coordinating muscle groups while maintaining posture and balance during movement. This process involves headaches, chronic pain, contractures … so manual dexterity is also affected.
