Holistic Therapies at Tranquility Woods
Acupuncture therapy has been used for thousands of years in Chinese medicine to stimulate specific parts of the body by inserting small needles through the skin. Acupuncture is offered three times per week at our rehab center to help release toxins within the body that cause physical pain and hold emotional trauma.
Nutritional therapy considers the importance of what we put into our bodies to support recovery, health, and happiness. Eating a balanced diet with foods that are highly nutritious will help the body to function optimally, improve energy levels and decrease stress.
Equine therapy is a well-known treatment for those recovering from addiction. Connecting with horses helps promote emotional growth and personal development. While working with horses is a small part of a larger treatment plan, those who do often experience several life-changing benefits.
Meditation for addiction has been a helpful practice for many addicts during their recovery process, as well as a tool to remain sober after rehab has ended. Not only does meditation often introspection, empathy, forgiveness, and healing, but it physically rewires our brains for long-term success.
Sweating is one of the ways in which the body naturally detoxifies itself. Infrared sauna causes the body to warm up from the inside out and helps aid the detox process by releasing toxins that have been stored in the body, as well as boosting the immune system.

The body’s natural systems can produce surprisingly unexpected behavior, and, therefore, conventional medical treatment alone is very unpredictable. Holistic therapies emphasize and prioritize the body as a whole ~ not as individual parts.
