The Picture of Health
Healing Your Life with Art

by Lucia Capacchione Ph.D, A.T.R., R.E.A.T.

The Picture of Health book cover (3868 bytes)

Fully Illustrated with Nearly 100 Pictures

This book is about healing with art. It offers you a new way to look at yourself and to create a healthy life. Through scribbling, drawing, and collage, you will learn to "think and feel" on paper.

You will be shown how to decode the messages contained in your body and feelings, and translate your insights through the written word. You will also learn to reshape your life from the inside out through "visual  affirmations" - pictures and words of how you want to experience your life.

No special talent or training is required to do these activities. All you need is the willingness to express your own truth, and the desire to love and heal yourself.

When our vitality is blocked we are in need of healing. These blocks often manifest themselves as physical pain and low energy. Art is a universal language. Regardless of sex or ethnic background, people use similar lines and colors to express the same emotions. 

Though many people seem to have lost their innate ability to make art, the fact is, we all have the ability to tap our inner resources and make meaningful pictures that will help heal our bodies, minds and spirits, and enhance our lives.

The Picture of Health is all about healing with art, offering you a new way to look at yourself and create a healthy life.

Read Dr Capacchione's story of self-healing that lead to this book being written

Paperback 165 pages 

"A healing process that is fun...and it works!"

--Louise L. Hay

These techniques have been used successfully in dealing with a full range of human issues:

  • physical illness,
  • relationship conflicts
  • divorce 
  • death of a loved one
  • career crisis
  • creative blocks and "failures"

From the author - "Since the mid-1970's I have shared my discoveries at seminars for people of all ages and occupations: in schools and colleges, churches, corporations, counseling centers, and spiritual retreats." How Do I Select The Right Dr. Capacchione's Book For Me?

"Over the years I have documented my discoveries and techniques in many books The feedback has been so inspiring, especially in regard to the healing power of art, that I was moved to write this book. It includes not only my personal story and triumph over difficult odds and a life-threatening condition, but the impressive success stories of others."

"I became an art therapist in 1975 after healing an "incurable" disease primarily through spontaneous drawing and writing. At the time of my illness, I was a professional artist and teacher. I had never heard of art therapy, and there were no popular books on the subject. My spontaneous self-exploration through art was undoubtedly guided by a higher healing power within, taking me step by step back home to my Inner Self. 

"When you read my story you will see how the Inner Artist has played the role of healer throughout my life. Through the writing and drawing exercises, affirmations, visualizations, meditations, and inspirational stories, I hope you will find the healing power of your own Inner Artist. I have found that tremendous love - for yourself and for others - becomes the overflowing pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. it comes with the joy of finding and expressing your own truth."
