“Massage has had a positive effect on every medical condition we’ve looked at.” – Tiffany Field, Ph.D.
Addiction is difficult to process, and it affects your body, emotions and mental state. Massage therapy during addiction recovery works to bring you back to the present moment where you can focus on healing your body and mind.
At Footprints Beachside Recovery, massage is used alongside our more traditional, evidence-based treatments to help relieve the stress and pain you’ve carried during addiction.
How Massage Therapy for Addiction is Used in Treatment
Addiction treatment involves getting to the bottom of what started your substance abuse in the first place and working through uncomfortable and even painful experiences. Doing so can be difficult to communicate to a therapist, which is why we leverage experiential therapies like massage to help.
During your treatment, you’ll have the opportunity to take advantage of massage therapy up to two times per week. Massage therapy can relieve physical pain, as well as help you identify and process thoughts and emotions you didn’t know were there or didn’t know how to talk about.
At the end of the day, massage therapy is more than just a way to relax. It’s an opportunity to heal your body and free yourself from trauma and pain in a safe, soothing environment.
