Ways to Physically Improve your Mental Health

No matter who you are, you may find yourself at one point suffering from mental illness. It is one of those things that may not hurt physically; it can harm us just the same. Mental illness is not something that you can take lightly, as many find it a serious issue that sometimes results in doing everything that we can to heal. However, it does not come as quickly with everyone coping and dealing with it in different ways. At Peak Recovery, we aren’t your average wellness center. We do everything that we can to help you be at your best. Here are some things that we can offer that may assist you in bettering your mental health.


Float Therapy

Float therapy is the method of floating in lukewarm water. It is a form of sensory deprivation that takes away all senses, leaving you with deep relaxation. Float therapy leaves you in a meditative state, which can regulate stress levels, as well as physical and emotional pain. In addition to the physical remedies, it helps relieve depression, anxiety, PTSD, and much more. 


Massage Therapy

Along with its many physical solutions, massages therapy has a handful of mental benefits too. Studies have shown that sessions as short as a 15-minute chair massage can change a person physiologically and psychologically. Additionally, there are studies that massage therapy can increase your overall happiness. This is due to an increase in your brain’s serotonin and dopamine levels leading to a mixture that causes you to feel fresh and happier. Massage therapy has also been proven to help people with problems they might face while sleeping. 


Compression Therapy

While compression therapy is more used to treat things like improving blood pressure and healing ulcers, it may come as a surprise that it can also help people with anxiety and autism. Compression therapy is a form of deep pressure treatment. People who have conditions like autism, SPD, and anxiety may experience sensory overload as they may not filter out their different senses. Adding compression therapy can help eliminate some of that pressure by adding in the sense of enclosure, which could feel like a tight hug.
