Yoga for Addictions, Trauma, and Chronic Pain

Improve Mental Health with Gentle Yoga

We offer yoga as a compliment to our psychotherapy services that focuses on gentle, restorative movements designed to help with anxiety, depression, and high stress levels. Therapeutic yoga is offered as part of a six-week clinic focused on improving physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. During the clinic, we focus on exploring emotional connections to our beings, what is going on in our lives and beings, and what we can do to improve. During the sessions, we focus on action steps our participants can use outside of class to continue improvement and focus on a specific topic in self-care.

For trauma survivors who experienced abuse, an accident, war or other types of trauma, yoga serves to build trust and a mindful, positive relationship with survivors’ bodies and beings. After a trauma, many survivors experience feelings of betrayal from their bodies that failed to get them to safety or cause pain after traumatic experiences. Therapeutic yoga for trauma focuses on reestablishing trust through mindfulness, deep breathing, and gentle yoga exercises.

Massage Therapy for Mental Health

Incorporate Massage in Counseling

Traditional mental health methods of the past have focused on treatment through medications. Today’s modern mental health medicine acknowledges a direct link between physical wellbeing and mental wellbeing, as well as the benefits of touch and massage for mental health. At Conway Counseling & Wellness, we incorporate massage into counseling to help reduce anxiety and help our clients live better. Massage therapy helps to reduce cortisol and adrenaline and increase serotonin and dopamine, all of which can have a positive and lasting effect on mental health.

Massage therapy is an add-on, much like at a chiropractor or fitness center, that can be scheduled separately or in conjunction with a therapy appointment.
