Art Therapy provides people with an alternate means of self-expression. Many people find feelings hard to explain in words. With new, non-verbal means of expression they can release feelings and emotions. This can open doors, enable progress and lead to breakthroughs in treatment.
Hans Christian Anderson once said, “Where words fail, music speaks.” Music can tap into our emotional core in a way that few other mediums can equal. It gives us a way to not only express ourselves, but to convey our deepest feelings to others in a way that simply talking usually can’t.
Yoga includes physical postures, breathing exercises and spiritual practices which evolved in ancient India thousands of years ago. Yoga has proven benefits for mental health and wellness including reducing anxiety, elevating mood, enhancing both focus and relaxation.
Practicing mindfulness can buy you the precious few moments of awareness before acting on impulse. This can help people with substance use disorders combat urges to use or drink. Mindfulness can also help people with mental health disorders avoid reverting to old behaviors and to remember to utilize new coping tools.
Meditation is an ancient practice which came about in different forms and different cultures over the millennia. It can be utilized to enhance mindfulness and focus, or enhance relaxation and calm. It is simple enough for nearly anyone to learn, but powerful enough to make a profound difference in your life if you make it a part of a recovery lifestyle.
Communing with nature is perhaps humankind’s oldest form of therapy. Modern life has separated us from the natural world. Nature hikes are a great way to reconnect to the Earth.
Drumming and drum circles are an effective and enjoyable way for us to connect with our primal selves. There are good reasons why the ancient tradition of drum circles has survived to this day. We can experience and benefit from drumming in much the same way our ancestors did. Vigorous drumming also has some cardiovascular exercise benefits. It raises your heartrate and improves circulation.

More About Our Holistic Approach for Mental Health Conditions
Holistic therapy for mental health conditions focuses on treating people, not simply addressing symptoms. It recognizes that conditions like depression, anxiety, and PTSD are complex and can have multiple root causes.
The holistic approach to mental health is proven effective. It does not discard conventional therapies like CBT or DBT. It complements them by giving patients new tools to access and express their feelings. Holistic mental health treatment can improve self-esteem and allows one to better understand their own feelings and behaviors.
Why Holistic Therapy is Effective
Holistic treatment for mental health or substance use disorders combines different treatment methods for maximum effect.
Varied approaches help individuals better connect to all facets of their humanity. For example, yoga can help with the mind-body connection and counteract anxiety. Art therapy can help people better express and process their feelings when words aren’t enough.
Exposure to a variety of holistic therapies is helpful because:
- Different people respond more favorably to different approaches.
- Addressing mind, body, and spirit requires a variety of approaches.
- Many people aren’t aware of their best tool of self-expression until they experience it.
