Holistic Therapies

Holistic Therapies

Bridges to Recovery recognizes that the mind, body, and spirit are an integrated system, and we provide an innovative range of therapies that honors the relationship between somatic and psychological states. If you are living with a mental illness, this relationship can be particularly fraught with conflict, disorder, emotional pain, and suffering. Our integrated treatment can improve your recovery outcome through a combination of clinical and holistic therapies that engage you emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

Whether you are struggling with debilitating somatic symptoms of anxiety, disconnection from your body after trauma, or an inability to adequately attend to your physical needs, we have an array of tools available to help regenerate and reconnect your mind, body, and spirit. Holistic therapies can be important to your recovery, as you gain increased mindfulness, relaxation, and the ability to nourish yourself in a healing way.

Yoga

Our compassionate yoga instructor at Bridges to Recovery creates a safe, supportive space to explore your yoga practice regardless of fitness level or previous experience. Included in your cost of treatment are two or more weekly yoga sessions, where you are encouraged to listen to your body, recognize your physical and emotional limits, and work within your comfort level at all times.


Massage

Our massage therapists are experienced with a range of psychological and physical conditions, and work with you to address your specific concerns.


Acupuncture

Our acupuncturist will discuss your needs and any concerns you may have to create a treatment plan that addresses your specific emotional and physical needs. Based on years of experience, they can identify blockages you may be experiencing and apply stimulation to the parts of the body related to your symptoms, encouraging neural connectivity and opening up the flow of energy.


Meditation

Through breathing and visualization techniques, we will guide you toward awareness of your thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations in the present moment. With a maximum of six clients at a time, our meditation group is an intimate space where each member can receive the support they need to practice at a pace that is right for them.


Physical Fitness

There are full gyms at our residences for physical fitness training. Our competent, empathetic trainers work with you twice a week, guiding you through a range of exercises targeted to your personal needs and fitness level to safely and effectively instill the skills necessary for optimum physical health.


Drumming Group

You will be invited to participate in our drumming group at your own pace, allowing you the space to explore your sonic meditative process in a supportive environment. Drumming offers a non-verbal language for self-expression that allows you to feel understood and validated without having to verbally disclose the details of your emotional experience.
