People with addictions come from all walks of life and in all shapes and sizes. The painful struggles with drugs or alcohol addictions can hit anyone, from any background.

Ease Those Lingering & Painful Withdrawal Symptoms
Massage therapy has been used for hundreds of years to address chronic pain in a holistic manner. It is a great tool in the fight against pain without using painkillers, and especially opiates. Because of these healing factors, massage can be particularly effective in the treatment of long-term pain and discomfort that is often associated with the detoxifying effects of the withdrawal process. Our massage therapy programs typically alleviate the following symptoms that are associated with withdrawal. These include, but are also not limited to:
Helps Reduce Anxiety & Depression in the Initial Phases
Anxiety and depression go hand-and-hand during the initial recovery phase. Most every addicted person will struggle with these symptoms, so don't feel alone. The symptoms you're feeling are most likely related to a condition that almost all addicts face called PAWS, or post-acute withdrawal syndrome. Also, with extended substance abuse, your healthy coping skills diminish. Massage can help decrease depression and anxiety and serves as a positive coping tool.
Healthy For Your Body
Massage therapy offers a healthy alternative to pain management in that it also makes you feel good about yourself. Continued massage treatments can prove to be vital in developing positive new habits and coping skills to stay focused on sober living. Whenever you start feeling down on yourself, get a massage and see how quickly you can feel better.
Do You Need Regular Massages After Treatment?
Yes. We feel it is wise to seek massage therapy for as long as you feel the need for it. You should probably get one as often as you can afford. Including massage therapy in your at-home continuing treatment program means you'll always retain its positive effects. Recovering addicts that seek weekly treatments often reap the best results and maximum benefits.
