Holistic therapies, including shiatsu massage are becoming a popular and effective treatment option for those suffering from drug and alcohol addiction.
Massage therapy for addiction recovery is a helpful way to help reduce stress and provide comfort to people who are experiencing physical or emotional pain.
At the Dunes East Hampton, we incorporate multiple holistic treatment therapies including shiatsu massage as part of our holistic addiction treatment program.
Health Benefits Of Massage
Massage offers a number of health benefits to our clients, such as:
- Improved quality of sleep
- Increased circulation
- Nervous system stimulation
- Mind relaxation
- Relief from joint pain
- Stress reduction
Stress reduction is one of the most important benefits to our clients at the Dunes, since it helps them to focus more easily on their personal recovery.
When a person is feeling stressed, their body experiences certain physiological changes, such as increased heart rate and blood pressure, higher levels of stress hormones, and decreased blood flow to the extremities, immune system and digestive tract.
For many people, the answer to dealing stress and emotional and physical pain is to self-medicate by turning to drugs and alcohol. The Dunes can introduce massage as an alternative to chemicals as part of the recovery process.
Shiatsu Massage For Better Recovery
Shiatsu massage is a Japanese form of massage that is used to promote health by improving the state of chi in the body. Hand pressure and movements are used to adjust the body’s natural energies to restore it to good health.
This type of massage helps clients to maintain harmony, both within themselves and with the outside world. Once they are able to get relief from stress and feel more physically comfortable, learning the skills required to live a sober lifestyle will be a much easier and more enjoyable process.
