Adult coloring books have gained huge popularity in the therapy industry. I figured I should join the trend!
Coloring for adults has certain proven therapeutic benefits. Art therapy is more involved than just coloring and will create greater results.

Coloring also helps to transport the user back to simpler times of their childhood; hoping to create a more positive atmosphere.
