Holistic Mental Health Therapy in Nashville

When it comes to treating mental health issues, many people either find that traditional treatments like medication and talk therapy are not enough to give them satisfactory relief from their symptoms. This often leaves people wondering what else they can do to try and support their healing process. Holistic therapies are the perfect option for people with these concerns, they focus on healing the whole person rather than just treating symptoms of a mental health disorder.

What Does Holistic Mean?

Holistic therapy focuses on treating a person as a whole individual, in order to heal the mental, emotional, and physical symptoms of their condition.  Mental health disorders affect every aspect of a person’s being and life. Many people find themselves affected by issues like poor eating habits, lack of exercise, isolation, and many more. Holistic therapy helps clients to find a balance in their life, improving other areas outside of their mental health symptoms in order to help them feel more physically fit, raise their self-esteem, increase their mindfulness, and more.

Types of Holistic Treatments

When you enroll in a holistic mental health therapy program, you aren’t simply signing up for one single type of treatment. Instead, holistic programs should offer a range of treatment options so that each client can pick and choose which they are most likely to benefit from, and be interested in continuing even after their time at the facility has ended. Some of the most common holistic treatment options include:

  • Yoga

Not only is yoga a great, low-impact way to get some exercise and build lean muscle mass, it is also a great way to learn mindfulness. It also helps you to relax, improve sleep, reduce stress, increase energy levels, and help improve self-awareness of your body and its needs.

  • Art Therapy

You don’t have to be an artist to benefit from art therapy. No matter what your experience level with creating art, many studies have found that the act of using art is extremely helpful for clients in processing negative or difficult thoughts and feelings. It also helps you learn how to express complex emotions in a way that is positive and affirming.

  • Music Therapy

Much like art therapy, you do not have to have experience playing an instrument in order to benefit from music therapy. The act of learning how to play something helps to give your mind something positive to focus on, builds confidence, and gives you a new hobby to utilize when you are out of treatment.

  • Fitness

Often, people with an untreated or poorly controlled mental health condition feel exhausted and unable to even think about their physical fitness. You may be surprised to learn that being physically active can actually support your recovery. Exercise releases endorphins, which help support your mood. It also helps get you out of the house, enjoying some fresh air with the weather permits, and helps you to feel more confident about yourself.

  • Nutrition

For many people suffering from a mental health condition, their health has taken a backseat while they have struggled to find a level footing in life. This means that you may have a nutrient deficiency, or have lost or gained a significant amount of weight. Nutrition therapy teaches you how to utilize wholesome, nutritious meals to support your recovery. Being well-fed has many benefits, from increased energy to more even moods, and helps to heal physical issues that resulted from your mental health condition.

What are the Benefits of Holistic Therapy?

When it comes to holistic therapy for mental health, there are many different benefits that you may experience – and there are even studies to support its use. These treatments present a great opportunity for clients to further cement their recovery, or provide them non-medical options if they do not want to use antidepressants. The main benefits of holistic therapy include:

  • It offers “whole-person” healing.
  • It helps to manage your stress levels.
  • They can often be low-cost in comparison to other treatments.
  • You are able to choose from a variety of options.
