Benefits of Holistic Therapy

There are many benefits of holistic therapy. These benefits include finding a spiritual path that was missing before addiction, dealing with side effects and withdrawal that comes with being addicted to substances, environmental contaminants or toxins, and facing and correcting an imbalance that led to addiction.

Holistic therapy includes:

  • Nutritional diet
  • Reiki or energy-driven activities
  • Natural remedies or herbal medicines
  • Acupuncture, acupressure, and massage
  • Neurofeedback and biofeedback
  • Meditation and yoga

Benefits of Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient method of holistic healing. It involves placing thin needles just below the skin to draw out toxins and bring the body back into balance with itself. In the 1970s, some addiction treatment centers started offering acupuncture as part of their rehab programs. This was due to the fact that a specific type of acupuncture helps with trauma, anxiety, addiction, and stress. The name for this particular acupuncture is acudetox or auricular acupuncture.

Benefits of Massage

Massage involves using long, circular strokes all over the body. This generally helps relieve stress and relaxes muscles. There are three stages of ending an addiction: withdrawal, detoxification, and abstinence. Massage can help the client throughout each of the stages. One of the reasons addicts take drugs is to feel good. Substance abuse can be replaced with massage therapy since the client can feel the same good feelings during a massage. There is an increase in circulation throughout the body during a massage, which can help during the detoxification process of addiction.

Benefits of Acupressure

Acupressure is very similar to acupuncture in that pressure is applied to specific areas of the body to bring the entire being back into harmony. Instead of needles, fingers and hands are used to apply pressure to specific areas of the body. Benefits of acupressure include bringing balance back to the body, which can eliminate pain and sickness caused by addiction.
