How Massage Therapy can Help the Recovery Process
We know that when the body feels well there’s a good chance our minds will perform better. While at the facility we want our clients to gather as many tools as possible to combat addiction. This will take mental strength and effort, and we believe our massage therapy program will help. At SJRP we are all about making the recovery process go as smoothly as possible for clients at our drug and alcohol rehab. Florida might be a distanced location from where you live and we realize that you could be facing many challenges in your recovery, and that it might be difficult at times for a client to talk about their past and personal life. It may even hurt and be uncomfortable during times at treatment. This is normal because the client is learning how to let go of the past and develop new and positive habits that are unfamiliar.
During the detox period, the body starts to withdrawal from drugs and alcohol. Most clients experience physical symptoms that range from mild to severe, causing the body to be in pain and uncomfortable. At times, clients might not know why they feel the way they do, and some are unable to verbalize their feelings and thoughts. This is why we launched our massage and full-body healing therapy, which allows our clients to relieve stress in healthy ways.
We believe that it is imperative to incorporate massage and total body healing therapy into your treatment plan.

According to North Western Health Science University, “massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being.” Massage therapy has been used in many different cultures and dates back more than a thousand years. Studies have shown that massage may help with back pain as well as improve the quality of life for people with depression, cancer, HIV/AIDS and other physical and mental issues.
