Reflexology as Drug Rehab Therapy
People going through an intensive drug rehab often need to look for something to fill the void that is left in their life from their previous drug abuse. It’s important not only to replace their former drug use, but replace it with something healthy and with something that will be powerful and interesting enough for the individual not to relapse and start using drugs again. Some drug rehab centers offer very general and uninteresting therapies and treatments for their patients, and this can lead to patients becoming very distant and generally uninterested in the drug treatment program overall. But certain drug rehab centers like Seabrook House offer individually structured rehab programs to ensure that each individual patient is getting the unique treatment that they need, along with the complimentary and recreational therapies that interest them.
Reflexology is an example of a complimentary therapy offered by Seabrook House. Reflexology is a gentle, non-invasive, holistic therapy based on the principle that there are reflex points in the feet (or hands) for every organ, gland, and part of the body. Addiction, illness, stress and injury put the body in a state of “imbalance” and vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively. By applying pressure to specific points, called reflex points, on the feet/hands, blockages in corresponding parts of the body can be released and the free flow of energy to the whole body can be restored. Tensions are eased and circulation and elimination is improved. This gentle therapy encourages the body to heal itself, often counteracting a lifetime of misuse.
This kind of treatment can be very appealing to patients, and it can be a turning point in the recovery process. Detoxifying the body from years of drug abuse can be a painful but satisfying healing process when there are gentle therapies like Reflexology offered. Creating individually inspired and holistic programs for patients is just one of the many reasons why Seabrook House patients are so successful in their recoveries.
