A Truly Healing Wellness Environment
Mindfulness meditation, which has been practised by Buddhists for over 2,500 years and is based on the premise that nothing in life is permanent, brings your mind to focus solely on the present resulting in a heightened awareness of the ebb and tide of your physical and emotional symptoms. Achieving this state of mind, allows an addict to notice their cravings when they occur and by focusing on them, they can actually get the feeling to subside without taking any action.
Today, numerous studies have shown that Mindfulness meditation can alter traits like temperament that were once assumed unchangeable – because with regular practice we actually retrain the brain, which builds new neural networks among brain cells. These new neural connections cause the brain to learn new behaviours or coping strategies.
THE SOONER YOU GET HELP, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF RECOVERY
Mindfulness Therapy as Part of The Cabin’s Addiction Treatment Method
The biggest obstacle to overcoming addiction is fear – fear that you cannot change, fear that you will give in to your cravings. Mindfulness therapy – made up of mindfulness meditation and yoga practice – is a key aspect of The Cabin’s addiction treatment method because of its proven effectiveness in dealing with cravings and negative emotions or moods.
In addiction treatment, Mindfulness meditation and yoga have been scientifically proven to:
- Reduce the levels of the stress hormone cortisol – a key trigger for addicts
- Strengthen the immune system through increasing interleukin levels
- Increase energy levels
- Improve the body’s ability to rid itself of toxins, including lactic acid that contributes to physical stress.
Our Mindfulness Therapy coaches are certified instructors who have trained with some of the world’s leading meditation and Yoga gurus and possess vast experience in helping addicts achieve recovery through these practices. They work with the client to design a personalised practice regime that includes Yogic practices, lifestyle routines and recommendations that create balance, and wholeness and ultimately help achieve a state of well-being and contentedness.
Mindfulness can also be practised in everyday situations to improve emotional, mental, and physical health. The Cabin Chiang Mai incorporates mindfulness techniques and practices into many treatments, from lectures and practical exercises to its emphasis on meditation and yoga. We combine Mindfulness Therapy with a comprehensive Physical Therapy regimen to enhance the recovery process. Our goal is to create optimal health conditions for you during your stay at The Cabin. We do this through a multitude of therapies:
Yoga Therapy: Yoga promotes healing and prevention of imbalances on a physical, emotional and mental level to achieve a greater state of overall well-being.
Trauma Release Exercise (TRE): A self-help tool for the natural release of stress, trauma and anxiety. By activating the body’s natural shaking reflex (neurogenic tremors), we discharge this held tension and imprinted memories that are stored in the body on a cellular level, to develop a more healthy and balanced nervous system.
Mindfulness Meditation: Develop your meditation practice to achieve a state of alert and focused relaxation. By deliberately paying attention to thoughts and sensations without judgment, we bring the mind back to the present moment with focus and discipline.
Art Therapy: An expressive therapy that uses the creative process of art-making to help improve mental and emotional well-being. You do not have to be an artist or artistically inclined to benefit from art therapy.
At The Cabin Chiang Mai East really does meet West. We are proud of our dedication to using holistic methods in SE Asia and our integrative counselling model called ‘Changing Pathway’. Mindfulness meditation is an ancient practice of Buddhist monks, this meditative time involves attending to the present moment with non-judgmental acceptance. We find that our use of this holistic addiction treatment method fosters an open, curious and non-judgmental approach to life’s challenges, providing a key component to the trauma and addiction recovery process.
