In addition to the traditional therapies offered at The Manor Clinic, we also take a holistic approach to your recovery and provide other activities that are designed to treat the body as well as the mind, regardless of ability or age.
Activities such as Yoga provide individuals in recovery with practical and effective means of managing stress, resisting relapse, and maintaining healthy recovery long after they have completed their time in treatment.
Yoga at The Manor Clinic is led by Angie, a certified freestyle fitness yoga instructor and fully qualified Indian Head Masseuse. Angie has also been on many Mindfulness and Yoga workshops, making her sessions a truly unique and life-enhancing experience.
Yoga classes take place twice weekly and give you an opportunity to look within, refocus, and regain a sense of perspective whilst engaging in a nurturing and supportive environment. We encourage you to relax, slow your breathing and focus on the present moment, which in turn slows down the mental loops of frustration, regret, anger, fear and desire that can cause stress.
You will be shown with nurturing and respectful guidance how to safely come in to and out of postures and by using breath with movement, how relaxed and calm your body and mind can become.
Meditation, together with yoga, builds awareness. The more aware you are, the easier it is to break free from destructive emotions. We understand at The Manor Clinic that becoming ill with an addiction can be beyond your control but meditation can help you take responsibility for our own states of mind for the better.
Meditation encourages you to develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity and a calm seeing of the true nature of things, helping you to develop profoundly peaceful and energised states of mind.
Pranayama or simple breath awareness techniques can help with addictive behaviours, anxiety, insomnia, and stresses of everyday life. After practicing regularly, you may experience feelings of gratitude, empathy and forgiveness.
The Manor Clinic has a fully-trained Acupuncturist and Acupuncture groups are held in a relaxed group setting where each session lasts for around 30 minutes.
We instil strict hygienic practices and we are approved by the National Institute of Drug Abuse. We also follow the NADA GB protocol here at the Manor Clinic and our practitioner is certified with them.
