Nutritional Therapy That Goes Beyond Mealtime

You have heard the adage before: you are what you eat. When it comes to drug and alcohol addiction or substance use issues, this is especially true. Some studies point to the fact that an increase in certain dietary elements such as amino acids and omega-3 fatty acids can actually decrease the risk of relapse. You owe it to yourself to have the right nutrition to set you up for success.

Exclusive Hawaii Rehab aims to restore balance to your body via dietary changes. Many of our clients come in with nutritional deficiencies as a result of substance use. An on-staff dietician can help us to mitigate these deficiencies to help you heal physically and to improve your overall health.

You will even find that nutritional therapy can improve your mood, a struggle for many people who are just entering into recovery. There is a strong mind-body connection here that many professionals ignore but it is an important component of holistic treatment programs.

Nature Immersion Therapy for Improved Mood

Nature Immersion Therapy as Holistic Detox

When is the last time you spent any serious time in the great outdoors? The effects of nature on your overall mood are significant. According to research from the University of Minnesota and others, nature reduces your overall feelings of anger, fear, and stress. With these emotions out of the way, you have an opportunity for more pleasant feelings.

Not to mention, nature immersion can also have a profound physical effect on your body. It can reduce blood pressure, heart rate, and muscle tension while decreasing your stress hormones such as cortisol. You often sleep better, have improved memory, and might even find that you are more creative.

At Exclusive Hawaii Rehab, you will be surrounded by a beautiful and serene tropical setting that can work wonders for your overall healing. At our holistic addiction treatment center, you will have 30 acres to explore on our private estate while soaking up the views of the Pacific Ocean and the snow-topped volcanoes. We even offer weekly outings to other locations on the islands that allow you to fully enjoy the atmosphere of Hawaii.

Bodywork for Whole Person Well Being

It is not hard to understand that drug and alcohol issues can take a real toll on your overall health mentally and physically. Holistic treatment programs take this into consideration, and Exclusive Hawaii Rehab offers bodywork that can lessen your withdrawal symptoms and help you to face substance abuse with ease.

There are several different types of bodywork that you might be interested in ranging from mindfulness to massage therapy.

Mindfulness for Decreased Relapse

Bodywork begins by cultivating a sense of mindfulness in our holistic treatment program. These exercises are simple, but that does not mean they are easy. Being aware of how your body feels and why can mitigate the likelihood of relapse by allowing you to embrace the feeling instead of seeking relief through substance abuse.

According to research, mindfulness-based relapse prevention is more effective at relieving cravings following intensive treatment than simply treatment as usual.

Acupuncture to Relieve Blocked Energy

As part of our holistic addiction treatment, Exclusive Hawaii Rehab also offers many Eastern medicine practices including acupuncture. Acupuncture is the placement of very small needles in a painless process that is designed to unblock stuck energy at key points in the body.

One way that acupuncture can help is through pain management. Many of our clients come to us with pain issues that segue into substance use. Acupuncture allows you to better manage physical health and pain, but it is also thought to improve the mind-body connection.

After medical detox, you might enjoy the relaxing nature of acupuncture as well as its overall health benefits.

We believe that ancient practices and alternative medicine can be healing for those who are struggling with drug and alcohol use. Acupuncture is just one of many methods that we can implement from eastern medicine to improve your outcomes at our holistic treatment program.

Massage Therapy for Improved Physical Symptoms

Massage Therapy

Massage is an important component of holistic treatment for those who struggle with drugs and alcohol. Most people know that massage is a powerful way to relieve stress, and we find that it helps both physical symptoms and psychological symptoms.

Even from an early age, researchers have found that massage can improve pain management both before and after stressful procedures. It stands to reason that it could also help you to manage chronic pain as well as your substance use.

The touch of a skilled massage therapist triggers your brain to release a rush of dopamine which can help with pain management and secure a better mind-body connection.

Exclusive Hawaii Rehab believes that increasing the mindful awareness of your body in this way can help to prevent relapse. Instead of giving in to the physical sensation of cravings for drugs or alcohol, you might be able to embrace those feelings and face them.

Craniosacral Therapy for Natural Healing and Mental Health

Last but not least, we also believe that craniosacral therapy is an important option when it comes to holistic therapies. While relatively new to the scene and founded in the 1980s, this treatment promises powerful effects on your withdrawal symptoms and prolonged wellness for your substance abuse treatment.

In this holistic treatment, a trained therapist stimulates fluids around the craniosacral area (around the nervous system). Stimulation to this part of the body is a core component of helping you to achieve wellness in the circulatory, musculoskeletal, digestive, and even respiratory systems of the body.

Beyond just the physical effects of craniosacral therapy, it also impacts mood. The stimulation of the nervous system can reduce symptoms of PTSD, fatigue, stress, and even emotional issues that make your recovery more challenging.

Yoga for Improved Mind Body and Spirit

When many people think of addiction treatment, they visualize deep breathing exercises and even yoga. Yoga can be one of the most effective holistic therapies because it allows its practitioners to tune into the sensations of the body and tap into the breath. Yoga is great for restoring your physical condition following the sedentary lifestyle that many people fall into with substance abuse.

However, it is more powerful than just physical well-being.

Yoga for Improved Mind Body

Yoga is an important component of a holistic addiction treatment program. First, it produces endorphins that will naturally reduce your cravings for drugs and alcohol. It can become second nature to roll out a yoga mat every time you feel a craving instead of turning to your substance of choice.

You will find that in our holistic treatment program, yoga is also crucial to your mental health in addiction treatment. It improves mood, reduces depression and anxiety, and helps you to relax. The use of certain yoga breathing exercises also reduces the risk of relapse, according to studies. You will even sleep better at night with a little bit of exercise under your belt.

Personal Development During a Holistic Detox

One of the issues facing many people who come for substance abuse or addiction treatment is that they lose their overall sense of purpose. Exclusive Hawaii Rehab offers a unique form of therapy with our mental health counselor who specializes in Claiming a Life Purpose.

This type of treatment is designed to help you identify who you are at your core and make better decisions moving forward that align with who you want to become. We offer several types of holistic addiction treatment in our program, including neural tapping and mission therapy, a Life Contract, and a Responsibility Square.

Neural Tapping and Mission Therapy to Improve Mood

Utilizing some of the same skills as yoga and acupuncture, neural tapping uses acupressure to help clients deal with their fears and stress. It allows you to tap into your central nervous system to heal your brain, freeing you up to dive more fully into your holistic treatment for drug abuse or alcohol abuse.

Mission therapy is another opportunity for a holistic approach to your well-being. Many people find that they struggle to find purpose outside of their drug or alcohol consumption. Instead, Exclusive Hawaii Rehab’s mental health counselors will help you to identify a sense of purpose and meaning that eliminates the need for escape through drugs and alcohol.

The goal of both of these exercises is to improve your overall mood. You will have a greater sense of self and a clear path forward when you leave the holistic rehab.

Writing a Life Contract for Clarity

Writing a Life Contract

One way that Exclusive Hawaii Rehab helps with substance abuse is through the use of a life contract. Our treatment centers utilize the four natures of a person and tap into the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of your life to help you achieve balance.

Learning how to manage and balance these four areas in our holistic drug rehab will give you a sense of empowerment when you venture beyond the walls of our facility.

Responsibility Square for Healthy Boundaries

Many people who turn to holistic rehab centers struggle with feeling responsible for the emotions and needs of their friends and loved ones. At our holistic detox program at Exclusive Hawaii Rehab, we help you to define who you are responsible for and start to establish healthy boundaries with the people in your life.

With this exercise, you will learn how to take responsibility for yourself and eliminate some of the resentment that stems from trying to solve everyone else’s problems on their behalf. A holistic rehab should teach you what you can and cannot provide for others. This allows you to fill yourself up first before you start pouring out your time and energy on others.
