An essential part of The Dawn’s treatment programme is our Wellness curriculum, which helps foster an optimal state of wellbeing through holistic therapies and physical fitness. These wellness activities assists our clients in developing mental and physical strength as well as coping skills for a manageable future. When our clients are given the right tools to grow, it has a positive effect on other areas of their lives and increases the chances of on-going recovery.
Mindfulness is becoming increasingly popular around the world as a treatment option for both mental health issues and process addictions. During mindfulness and meditation sessions at The Dawn, clients come to better understand their bodies and attain greater clarity of their thoughts. This includes learning how to deal with negative thoughts and cravings, while developing a deep sense of relaxation and calm in stressful situations as they arise.
Dealing with mental health and addiction problems puts the body under excessive amounts of stress. At The Dawn we use the therapeutic art of massage to assuage your condition. Massage has been scientifically proven to reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol, relax tight and stiffened muscles; as well as improve one’s ability to sleep deeper. Clients receive two massages a week with an option to purchase extra sessions.
Physical exercise and activity is integral to developing a healthy body and mind. Creating healthy and positive habits will help reduce stress, improve mood and enhance recovery. Some of the exercise options we offer include fitness training, circuit-training groups, and aqua aerobics for those with joint problems.
Yoga helps build a positive relationship with the body and mind. Aside from its physical benefits, yoga helps restore the mind and body connection. Through this restoration, clients are able to make wiser choices both on and off the yoga mat. Yoga is also an excellent tool for individuals who are not used to exercise or who have difficulty in doing more strenuous activities. It is also a relaxing practice that helps with anxiety, depression, and stress.
Art therapy offers a way for individuals to express themselves by making art. It is a therapeutic technique that everyone can enjoy and benefit from. By engaging in the creative process of making art, people are free to express themselves. This often results in increased self-awareness, stress reduction and improved self-esteem. Art therapy is a way for clients to engage in self-reflection, a part of healing. Art therapy can include painting, drawing, sculpting, dancing, and acting.
Also known as “The Art of Eight Limbs”, Muay Thai engages the whole body. The benefits and healing qualities of exercise are widely known, and we believe exercise is an important part of the recovery process. Our Muay Thai instructors will help you have fun and heal through exercise. Muay Thai helps you build discipline, build confidence, burn calories, get in shape, and strengthen your mind and body.
