Wood Carving as Relaxation Therapy
When I think of relaxation, my mind often turns to the old man sitting on the porch in a rocking chair, a knife in one hand, a piece of wood in the other. And that is how it goes, doesn’t it?
Wood carving is relaxing indeed almost like yoga, just you don’t need a yoga mat. We believe that wood carving comes in our life at the right timing. Actually, we can say that about everything as there is nothing spontaneous. While carving wood has always its incentive to bring changes for better in your life.
Either you’re bored or lost a friend, or want to get your hands occupied with something. Wood carving always gives its answers.
New rubric – Wood Carver Spotlight
This is why we opened a rubric called “Wood Carver Spotlight” to gather up the stories of carvers we know, or got connected somehow and spread the word about their experience. So others would get the idea, or better say true meaning of how carving wood can help.
How Tania got into wood carving?
“In 2013 I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and my body deteriorated fast. Then I started woodworking just out off a true devotion to the craft that stemmed from an intense satisfaction of turning art concepts into reality. I realized that woodworking was giving me a lot of my mobility back as well as bringing joy back in my life”Tania Burgos
