Descriptive information on provided services.
Reiki is a healing modality that uses energy channeled through the hands of a Reiki Master to release energetic blockages in the body that may inhibit healing from physical and /or emotional injury. Reiki is a potent supportive intervention during the detox process as it aids the body as it heals itself from the imbalance caused by addiction. While the client is not touched by the practitioner during the session, our clients report powerful sensations in their bodies and regard Reiki as one of the most effective mind-body treatments.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an emergent technique in the treatment of trauma that has proven extremely effective at enabling clients to access traumatic events and process them in a unique way that integrates the memory into both hemispheres of the brain. With time, this process results in desensitization to the memory of the traumatic event, thus reducing symptomology associated with PTSD as well as other related disorders. Our clients often site a traumatic event as a precursor to their substance use, and EMDR has allowed them to safely process this trauma and find closure with these events.
Acupuncture has been used for many centuries to treat ailments and restore health and balance in the human body. Acupuncture utilizes fine needles which are gently placed just beneath the surface of the skin. It is painless and frequently induces a deep state of relaxation while also facilitating the detoxification and healing of the body.
Acupressure has a similar effect upon the body as Acupuncture, but instead of needles, gentle pressure is applied with the fingers at energy meridians throughout the body. Like Acupuncture, Acupressure promotes relaxation, detoxification and healing.
Detox Massage is a specialized form of massage that facilitates the detoxification of tissue. It stimulates both the fascia and lymphatic systems to purge accumulated toxins while also inducing relaxation and improving circulation. Detox massage is safe in combination with any detox protocol.
Yoga is a powerful tool to support the restoration of wellness. It is a gentle form of moving meditation that strengthens the body and the mind through a series of easy poses. The benefits of a yoga practice are many as it nourishes not only the body, but also the spirit. Our yoga classes are conducted under the shade of a palm tree with a view of the ocean as the backdrop.
