Holistic Therapies that Produce Lasting Results

Holistic refers to a view of the mental of physical condition as a whole, not a collection of parts; that there is inter-connectedness between the mind, body and spirit. And that to improve one element means addressing the complete picture.

At Sanctuary Mauritius, we offer a wide range of effective holistic therapies to aid in the full recovery of each patient. A complete rehabilitation plan will be prepared for you during intake and assessment. Your treatment will include the core therapies we specialize in.

Yoga

Yoga is a broad group of ancient practices originating in India, which aims to integrate and unite the body, mind and spirit. Though yoga includes both meditative practices and asanas (postures), it is the latter which is commonly described as ‘yoga’ in the West.

At Sanctuary Mauritius, both aspects of yoga are taught, that is, postural practices and meditation. Both are especially beneficial in addressing the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of recovery.

Our yoga practitioners are highly qualified and experienced with many years of teaching experience. Yoga sequences are created individually for each client as each constitution requires a different program. Our one-on-one teaching ensures that the practices are attuned to your own specific strengths and limitations.

Over the course of your program, we will help you establish and develop a personal daily practice for the future. The postures and breathing techniques we teach you will help to improve digestion, circulation and respiration, resulting in:

  • Deeper level of self-­awareness, that once experienced, prevents a return to addictive behaviors;
  • Relief from depression, anxiety, and irritability; and a sense of calm within.

Meditation

Meditation is an important part of many individuals’ recovery. It helps to relax and focus the mind. Meditation also helps physically by regulating breathing, lowering blood pressure, and relaxing the muscles.
Spiritually it can help to unlock difficult emotions and bring a sense of peace and calmness. This practice is particularly beneficial to those suffering from anxiety, depression, and chaotic thinking.

There are many different types of meditation, including mindfulness and guided visualization; you will be introduced to the practice of meditation so that you can experience firsthand the many benefits that it brings.

Auricular Acupuncture

This practice involves inserting the tips of pins or needles into the meridians of the ear. It works on the principle that the ear contains a micro­system that connects directly to different parts of the brain.

By stimulating these points, signals or electrical impulses are sent to the brain. The brain in turn stimulates an action in a part of the body that the point is connected to. Auricular acupuncture has been used successfully as a holistic practice in the substance misuse field to aid the detoxification process by helping to flush the body of toxins.

The practice also stimulates natural endorphins, a chemical naturally produced within the body that helps to lift mood, reduce anxiety and cravings, and aids restful sleep. Auricular acupuncture is a proven method in our addiction recovery programs.

Effective Rehabilitation at an Affordable Price

Because of our idea location in Mauritius and our position as a leading rehabilitation clinic here, we are able to offer affordable pricing to our patients, both in our inpatient and outpatient programs. Unlike traditional clinics in the West or Middle East, we do not operate on a “profits first” model where the patient’s results are secondary to the bottom line.

At Sanctuary Mauritius, we put unique focus on your addiction or disorder. Whereas other clinics might accept as many patients as possible, we only allow for 20 patients at any given time or point in the year. You shouldn’t have to escape the distractions of home to arrive in a crowded impersonal environment. Our boutique hotel has only 25 guest rooms and affords scenic views of the surrounding mountains and large ocean vistas. Just being here will produce therapeutic results. You can expect an experience unlike any you’ve had.

Contact us today and inquire about our personalized rehabilitation programs so we can get you on a path to full recovery and success. What you do today can change your tomorrow. You can make a difference and alter your destiny. Take this opportunity you have today.
