Body-centered wellness incorporates a variety of physically healing activities to help patients manage their withdrawal symptoms and gain heightened awareness of the mind-body connection.

These activities can successfully align the mind and body and help patients develop an overall healthier lifestyle.
Lasting Benefits of Body-Centered Wellness
