There are more therapeutic methods than ever before and here at iris Healing Retreat, we have a deep catalog to choose from. Some people will respond to certain methods better than others might. Our trained staff can find the right methods to help you towards unconditional regard for yourself. With an individualized treatment plan, designed by our doctorate-level therapists, the seeds can be planted for finding your life’s true direction. In this blog, we’ll touch on sound therapy healing and other therapy forms that might prove beneficial.
Sound Therapy Healing
Simply put, sound therapy utilizes music, but it does so in a special way. The goal is to improve your emotional as well as your physical health. To be clear, this isn’t just about listening to music. That is one way that this therapy can work, but it can also involve movement, singing along, mediating, or even playing an instrument yourself. Studies have shown that this kind of therapy can lead to reduced pain and stress, as well as warding off the symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Yoga is more than just a physical exercise that makes you feel better. Indeed, it can heal your spirit and mind as well. So many who struggle with addiction are wracked with tension. Yoga takes that tension out of the major muscle groups in your body for good. Even massage therapy can’t exactly massage your internal organs, but yoga therapy can. Yoga, when put with other forms of counseling, has been shown to reduce cravings and even drug use. Of course, here at Iris, yoga therapy is just one of our many forms of therapy.
Nutritional Therapy: More than Eating Right
In our modern-day, it can be difficult to eat an appropriately healthy diet. Nutritional therapy can make it easier to deal with drug abuse and alcoholism, through the right supplements and proper nutrition. Our brains manufacture chemicals based on what we consume. So, a diet with the right vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and amino acids can actually help you to have a good mood. Beyond that, it can help you to regulate your mood, too. We know that it’s not always easy to stick to a good diet. That’s why at Iris, our mealtimes are strictly regulated. You won’t be hungry, but you won’t be too full, either. That way, you can keep your blood sugar levels stable and feel great all day (and night) long.
Therapy for Resolving Trauma
The above are just a fraction of the many different kinds of treatments that we offer. Of course, each of our treatments isn’t just about treating symptoms. Rather, they’re about treating the underlying traumas that caused those symptoms. By focusing on resolving those, the symptoms will gradually begin to dissipate. Spiritual growth and development are major parts of our treatment as well.
