Acupuncture, Massage and Subordinate therapy for drug addiction


Non traditional drug addiction therapy

An overview of forms of therapy used in our clinic:

Pranayama – breathing therapy

Pranayama is an important component of yoga. It characterises the confluence of body and spirit through breathing exercises, and is based on a tradition that is 5,000 years old. Pranayama exercises place the body in a state of relaxed serenity. The exercises are extremely simple to learn and show a positive effect after a short period of time.

Birth therapy

The goal of birth therapy is the renewing of internal resources. The patient relives his entire ontogenesis to be able to reflect and conquer his internal barriers.

Family constellation according to Hellinger

The patient must find his place within his family. He accepts the fate of his family constellation and gains insights into the often complex web of relationships to close family members, which can be the trigger for unresolved conflicts and psychological deficiencies. According to the theory developed by Hellinger, this process of awareness starts a process deep in the psyche of the person seeking a resolution – a process that becomes autonomous, resulting in a healing process.

Body-oriented therapy

The goal of this therapy is the complete relaxation of the body, and relief from muscular tension.

Transpersonal therapy

This extension to classic psychotherapy by means of philosophical, religious and spiritual aspects concentrates on the conscious perception of the world that surrounds us. The conscious focus on the body, experiences and nature – or simply on being in all its facets and identifying with this – intensifies the feeling of life and can relieve psychosomatic disorders.

Cold water showers

Showering down with cold water has a long tradition in Russia. It strengthens willpower, determination and courage. Medically, cold water stimulates the adrenal glands and has a positive effect on the patient’s health and immune system.

Art therapy

The opportunity of expressing feelings through painting, sculpting and other creative activities has been shown to have a positive effect on the treatment of patients with emotional problems.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a well-known method of enabling the patient to freeze a traumatic experience in his thoughts while the therapist simultaneously encourages him to follow the therapist’s slow finger movements with eye movements in the same rhythm. For many affected persons, this can reduce anxiety and help them to overcome such anxiety.

Hero therapy

Nobody is born a hero. Heroes need to develop. Based on this idea, this form of therapy attempts to awaken heroic virtues in the patient’s personality. As is the case for all classic heroes, they need to be able to do things that they could not even previously dream of doing. By means of fantasising, enacting and other creative techniques, participants should recognise their heroic goals as well as recognise and resolve limiting, negative images of themselves and the world to become strong-willed personalities.

Love therapy

Love forms the personality of a human being from birth on, and is extremely important for his development. When a child receives insufficient genuine attention and compassion, he can develop serious neurotic disorders. Many of our patients have suffered a fate such as this, which has caused them to slide into addiction. As a result, we ensure that only people who are capable of developing a genuine interest in the fate of a patient work in our clinic. Openness, trust and devotion are intended to give the patient a feeling of security, alleviating deficiencies in these areas in the patient’s past.

For us, too, the best forms of confirmation of our work are moving words of gratitude and embraces from a patient as if we were close family members, which we often receive for many months after the end of therapy.
