When you’re trying to heal from substance abuse and learn how to manage mental health disorders, the gentle touch of massage can provide welcome relief from stress, aches and pains, and symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Massage is an ancient practice that has been effectively used for thousands of years to promote relaxation and well-being. Massage has been proven to increase dopamine and serotonin and to decrease cortisol in the body. This can help those in recovery, particularly in the early stages of withdrawal when dopamine often drops significantly.

Other Benefits of Massage for Addiction Recovery
Massage also helps clients with pain, agitation, anxiety and sleep problems. As a result of massage, the body releases fewer stress hormones, including cortisol which weakens the immune system and can lead to increased pain. When pain increases, this can become the start of a cycle of pain. Massage can interrupt this cycle.
