Las Vegas Experiential Therapies
Recovery Through Art, Activity & Self-Discovery
Addiction is a time-consuming disease that often discourages people from exploring new activities. Recovering addicts often have trouble figuring out what to do themselves. Experiential therapies at The Nestled Recovery Center encourage residents to discover new activities that engage their personalities and interests and help them reconnect with their old hobbies that were abandoned because of addiction or create new hobbies to help them cope with the ups and downs of newly found sobriety.
It’s not unusual to feel reluctant to talk about addiction or feelings after going through detox. Patients who are not ready to engage in psychotherapy may feel more comfortable trying experiential therapy before opening up. Listening to music, trying arts and crafts, and participating in physical activities all help to regulate emotions and organize thoughts.
Activities to Clear Your Mind
There are many types of experiential therapies. Whether you’re a quiet person who enjoys spending time alone or a social butterfly who likes going outside – there is sure to be a program that appeals to your interests.
Experiential therapies offered at The Nestled Recovery Center include:
- Equine Therapy
- Song Healing Circles
- Somatic & Movement Therapies
- Family Therapy
You don’t need to go into experiential therapy with any expectations. Don’t worry about what you’re “supposed” to think about. Let your mind go where it wants as you participate. Just by focusing on the task at hand you will have an easier time processing your thoughts, exploring your emotions, and understanding your mental state. A positive session in experiential therapy can give you the confidence and peace of mind you need to begin talk therapy.
The Nestled Recovery Center in Las Vegas offers a unique type of therapy known as Equine Therapy. This type of therapy is designed to help those in recovery learn how to build relationships with horses and use the healing power of nature to support their recovery from addiction. Equine Therapy is based on the idea that being around horses can help to reduce anxiety and depression, build interpersonal skills, and increase self-awareness. Equine Therapy combines physical, emotional, and cognitive therapies for an overall holistic approach to healing. This type of therapy is highly effective due to the calming effect horses have on humans, and the ability of animals to create trust and acceptance. It also helps to improve communication and cooperation between those in recovery and their treatment team.
Yoga, Somatic And Movement Therapy
Yoga therapy is a comprehensive form of health care that blends physical, mental, and spiritual practices to create holistic health and wellbeing. It combines traditional yogic practices such as meditation, pranayama (breathwork), and asana (physical postures) with modern therapeutic tools such as therapeutic counseling and psychotherapy. Through a combination of yoga postures, breathing exercises, and meditative practices, yoga therapy can work to reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep, and create a more balanced lifestyle.
The Nestled Art Therapy offers a unique approach to mental health and wellness through the use of art therapy. Art therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses art materials such as paints, colored pencils, clay, and other media to help individuals explore emotions, develop self-awareness, manage behaviors, and improve mental health. In The Nestled Art Therapy, we provide a safe and secure environment for our clients to explore their emotions and create art that reflects their innermost thoughts and feelings.
Song Healing Circle
The Nestled Song Healing Circle Therapy is an innovative approach to healing that combines music and psychological therapy. This type of therapy is insightful, compassionate, and empowering to individuals seeking to explore their emotions, heal from trauma, and make meaningful changes in their lives. The process includes creating a therapeutic circle in which compassionate and supportive individuals are invited to explore their inner experience with the aid of music.
