Effective, short-term therapy: Utilizing finger labyrinths to promote brain synchrony

Harris, N.

Abstract: For many centuries, unicursal labyrinths have promoted a greater sense of group cohesion, self-awareness, and spiritual growth among its users. Today labyrinths are used at hospitals, schools, churches, prisons, and private practices. It is believed that they serve a holistic function, namely to bring more balance to our lives. In the past few years, thanks in part to the development of the Intuipath (a two-person finger labyrinth design), finger labyrinths are finding their way into therapeutic settings. Their influx into these settings is largely due to their effectiveness in facilitating relaxation and brain synchrony, which can result in a more rapid establishment of trust, greater creativity, and learning capability. This can foster enhanced interpersonal and intra-personal communication, leading to swifter and more complete issue resolution. This article reviews related literature related to this topic and reports the results of a case study compiled by the author.
