At Seven Star Recovery, we are always looking for more effective ways to help our clients. That means hiring experienced professionals who know how to administer tried and true treatments, ones that have stood the test of time. However, it also means that we’re constantly looking for some cutting-edge, more effective way to help someone along the journey to recovery. As of this writing, one of the newer effective treatments we offer is called “Havening.” This can help clients in a variety of ways.

How Havening Works

The goal of this therapy is to reduce the distress and anxiety you may feel from negative memories and feelings. Touch, according to the theories behind havening, can help to increase your brain’s levels of serotonin. So, havening does this by using therapeutic touch to change the pathways in your brain that are linked to emotional distress. When your serotonin is higher, you’ll feel more detached from a memory that brought you great distress in the past, helping you to relax and feel that much calmer, that much better.

The Touch of Havening

At Seven Star Recovery, we have professionals on staff who have treated many with havening techniques. Depending on the situation, it could include tapping your collarbone while stroking around your eyes or on your palms. It could also be stroking from your shoulders to your elbows. As with all of our other treatments, havening sessions are only conducted in a safe environment by vetted, experienced professionals.

What Can It Help With

Havening can help those struggling with addiction in so many ways. In addition to helping to treat the lingering memories from traumatic events, it’s been shown that, in some cases, it can help with grief, sadness, anxiety, fear, and more. Additionally, it can even assist with reducing cravings as well. Many who’ve gone through this treatment here at Seven Star say that it has helped with mitigating pain, too.
