Our Integrative Wellness services are designed to bridge therapeutic body-based practices with our mental health services. By integrating the two, clients gain a better understanding of how their emotions and thoughts impact their bodies and receive tools to help them feel more comfortable in their skin. These services include a comprehensive evaluation with our Integrative Wellness Director who will provide personalized recommendations. Integrative Wellness sessions include acupuncture, therapeutic massage, nutritional counseling and personal training and can be combined with any of our treatment programs.
More and more, research in psychology, physiology, and neuroscience are showing that the mind and body are intimately connected. Whether you are having sleep problems, headaches, or stomachaches, there is very likely a psychological component at play. What is more surprising to most people is that the reverse is also true: All of your psychological and emotional issues also have a physical counterpart. For example, when you are stressed out, you might tense your shoulders and over time develop chronic shoulder and neck pain. When you are nervous, you might get butterflies in your stomach, which can contribute to digestion issues such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Integrative Wellness sessions work with your mental health treatments to address both of these types of issues at one time.
