Massage and Acupuncture


At BriteLife, we follow a holistic approach for client addiction care. While we utilize leading medical and evidence-base therapy in our drug and alcohol rehab programs, we complement those programs with alternative therapies, like massage and acupuncture that have been demonstrated to provide relief for cravings, withdrawal symptoms, pain, anxiety, and more. 

Holistic treatment includes healing the whole person, not just the parts impacted by substance use disorder. Our goal is to heal your mind, body, and spirit with our massage and acupuncture therapy programs. They are essential elements in our wellness program.


Massage therapy is the physical manipulation of the soft tissues of the body (muscle, connective tissue, tendons, and skin) utilizing pressure and movement for effectiveness. The massage improves blood flow to certain areas of the body and delivers pain relief and muscle relaxation naturally.

At BriteLife, we use licensed massage therapists to assist our clients through the pain, discomfort, and stress of detox. Massage therapy for addiction provides instant relief for many of the common indications clients encounter as they go through the detox process.

It is also used as an alternative therapy for clients trying to manage mental and behavioral health issues, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).


Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese healing technique that has been applied for thousands of years to efficiently treat a wide range of health conditions. A licensed acupuncturist uses long, very thin needles that are meticulously inserted at specific touch points on the body. These thin needles stimulate various body function systems (immune, nervous, and digestive} to generate the desired result.

At BriteLife, we use acupuncture to assist clients with a range of issues directly related to addiction recovery including curbing cravings, decreasing withdrawal symptoms, and reducing pain. Acupuncture also helps with other behavioral health issues, including lowering anxiety and enhancing sleep.
