Holistic therapies for addiction recovery
The body’s natural systems can produce surprisingly unexpected behavior, and, therefore, conventional medical treatment alone is very unpredictable. Holistic therapies emphasize and prioritize the body as a whole ~ not as individual parts. Below you’ll find a number of therapies available as part of a patient’s recovery process at Tranquility Woods.
Acupuncture therapy has been used for thousands of years in Chinese medicine to stimulate specific parts of the body by inserting small needles through the skin. Acupuncture is offered three times per week at our rehab center to help release toxins within the body that cause physical pain and hold emotional trauma.
Massage therapy is one of the most popular holistic therapies as it helps relax the body and mind from feelings of stress, anxiety, agitation, and physical pain experienced during addiction recovery.
Nutritional therapy considers the importance of what we put into our bodies to support recovery, health, and happiness. Eating a balanced diet with foods that are highly nutritious will help the body to function optimally, improve energy levels and decrease stress.
Exercise has been benefits for a recovering addict. Exercise boosts feel-good chemicals within the brain and body to lowering stress and fight depression, it brings feelings of accomplishment and reward, improves health and boosts confidence.
Yoga combines movement and mindfulness to strengthen the body, mind, and spirit. Yoga has been successfully used by thousands of people as a regular practice to restore balance to one’s life and work through difficult emotions and feelings.
Sweating is one of the ways in which the body naturally detoxifies itself. Infrared sauna causes the body to warm up from the inside out and helps aid the detox process by releasing toxins that have been stored in the body, as well as boosting the immune system.
Meditation for addiction
Meditation for addiction has been a helpful practice for many addicts during their recovery process, as well as a tool to remain sober after rehab has ended. Not only does meditation often introspection, empathy, forgiveness, and healing, but it physically rewires our brains for long-term success.
Experiential therapy helps addicts rediscover the enjoyment that can be found in activities that do not involve drugs or alcohol. From dance lessons and art classes to water sports, hiking, and go carting, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Equine therapy is a well-known treatment for those recovering from addiction. Connecting with horses helps promote emotional growth and personal development. While working with horses is a small part of a larger treatment plan, those who do often experience several life-changing benefits.
Spiritual counseling offers those in addiction recovery a sense of purpose and meaning in their lives. Our spiritual counselors offer guidance for an individual’s inner journey and are non-denominational.
