Corporate Chair Massage, Support Groups and Acupressure to Reduce Addiction

Occasionally we get a guest at the B & B who is a celebrity with a substance abuse problem. Their management sends them here for a week of yoga, meditation, and life coaching.

Back in the 1970s and 1980s when I was beginning my NYC corporate chair massage company – www.eventschairmassage.com – I met a visionary named Michael Smith. With crack use in New York City at that time increasing, some municipal hospitals were turning to acupuncture therapy to help free patients from addiction.

Thousands of drug and alcohol addicts were treated with acupuncture in the last dozen years under a program developed by Dr. Smith at Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx.

Now the technique – in which five thin needles, half an inch long, are inserted into the cartilage ridge next to the outer rim of each ear – has become the primary treatment at Lincoln and Morrisania Hospitals in the Bronx, Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn and many other to help doctors to cope with crack-induced psychiatric cases.

”They come in all agitated, and after about 20 minutes with the needles in, the agitation level drops and drops until they calm down and finally fall asleep,” said an administrator for the hospitals agency, Richard A. Sheola.

Today we know that these techniques including meditation, laughter yoga, aromatherapy, chair massage, herbal medicine etc. can all reduce drug dependency.

In addition powerful and understanding support systems can also have a very powerful effect.

This is important since there is greater use of opioids in the white collar world and the corporate work-place than ever before.

The articles that follow explore Dr. Smith’s work as well as how powerful the right support system can be for the drug addicted individual seeking a way out.
