–        Acupuncture

 

Rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, like other TCM modalities, is a holistic, energy-based approach to health restoration and management involving the insertion of ultra-fine needles into specific points on the skin in the treatment and prevention of a range of conditions and associated symptoms. By selecting points that correspond to certain functions or ailments, acupuncture can treat both the symptoms and the underlying causes of illness, and build resistance to disease. Acupuncture has become part of standard clinical treatment for a scope of addictive behaviours, both physical and psychological in nature. The ancient healing technique is widely accepted to reduce alcohol and substance cravings, alleviate symptoms related to withdrawal and detoxification, and assist with relapse prevention. In fact, studies have shown that Acupuncture can have a direct influence on brain activity. It appears that the stimulation of certain points can break neuro-biological connections associated with addictive behaviours.

 

–        Shiatsu

 

The eastern healing art of Shiatsu  or acupressure, combines principles of Japanese massage treatment and Chinese medicine in the stimulation of pressure points and energy channels within a complete system of bodywork encompassing examination, diagnosis and treatment of system imbalances.

Japanese for ‘finger pressure’, the Shiatsu technique applies pressure to specific areas of the body through thumbs, fingers and palms to detect and correct internal dysfunctions, fortify the functioning of organs and normalise the flow of vital energy through the body.

Shiatsu has a profound cleansing effect on the body. Deep pressure loosens and facilitates the elimination of accumulated toxins. Deep muscle and tissue relaxation aids in the release, management and prevention of stress, and restores physical function to the nervous, circulatory and immune systems assist the body’s natural ability to heal. Renewed energy and an overall sense of wellbeing follow a Shiatsu treatment as a logical enhancement to the your recovery program.
