Acupressure and therapeutic massage are beneficial when recovering from drug and alcohol addiction at Passages Malibu, especially during detoxification. Massage therapy naturally releases serotonin and dopamine while cleansing the body of toxins, minimizing the effects of drug and alcohol withdrawal while establishing a better mind-body connection.

Luxury drug rehab massage therapy can also alleviate:

  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Cravings
  • Irritability
  • Aches and pains
  • High blood pressure

Detox Massage

Drug rehab massage therapy provides effective, all-natural relief from the effects of drug and alcohol withdrawal. The low dopamine levels that clients sometimes experience during a detox can cause sensations of physical discomfort, but massage therapy can help correct this chemical imbalance by getting the brain to release dopamine naturally.

In addition to providing physical as well as emotional relief, detox massage has also been proven to speed up drug and alcohol withdrawal times by activating the lymph system, which regulates metabolic waste. As such, professional detox massage therapy is one of the many ways Passages Malibu provides a total drug and alcohol luxury rehab experience for each client that has been designed to maximize their chances of success.

Even after detoxification, massage therapy can help clients stay chemically-balanced and establish trust with Passages Malibu staff. Call (888) 546-4821 to learn more about what our luxury drug rehab massage can do for you or someone you love who is struggling with an addiction to drugs and alcohol.

More About Acupressure for Addiction

Our luxury rehab center combines massage therapy with acupressure to further ease the discomfort caused by drug and alcohol withdrawal without the use of chemicals. Acupressure is an Eastern extension of massage therapy that focuses entirely on the strategic manipulation of pressure points located throughout the body.

The working principles of acupressure for addiction are akin to acupuncture, except it is performed using fingers instead of needles. Biological pathways throughout the body can be realigned through physical touch to alleviate the discomfort caused by drug and alcohol withdrawal. An acupressure therapist knows how to balance these pressure points for total mental, physical and spiritual harmony.

The benefits of acupressure for a drug and alcohol addiction include a number of physical effects:

  • Pain reduction
  • Improved sleep
  • Less fatigue
  • Nausea relief
  • Appetite regulation

And a number of emotional benefits as well:

  • Decreased anxiety
  • Increased calmness
  • Mental clarity
  • Improved memory
  • Help with certain mental disorders (ADD, panic attacks, etc.)
