Addiction Recovery Support

Nina has had the privilege of working with this population since June 2015.

Most addictions are about self soothing.  Through massage a pathway can be created to bring the emotions back to the body where the pain is. Using different non-talk bodywork therapies pain and agitation is decreased, beta-endorphins are released and sleep improved to help you manage during the recovery process.

Nina works directly with patients at a recovery center to support the withdrawal and detox stages; she also offers massage at her private office to support not using and healing. She uses different therapies depending on where you are in your recovery.

Massage affects all layers of our selves and in abandoning an addiction, many parts of our selves become separated into pieces.  Integrated massage therapies can mend this mind/body connection.  “The spirit is who we really are. Our mind is our thinking brain, and our body houses this. If you’re an addict, you often have to ignore your body, because you are, in essence, hurting your ‘house’.” Maureen Schwer, NMD
