How Sandtray works
● The Sandtray itself is a container for clients’ experience.
● The sand activates the right brain, a nonverbal mode of thinking.
● What is experienced in a nonverbal way is brought into conscious awareness.
● Because the body and mind are fully engaged, the experience creates neural pathways in the brain, develops new memories, and builds internal resources which can be called upon in later real-world situations.
