Addiction Detox treatments are often coupled with complementary therapies to help individuals overcome personal traumas related to substance abuse.

In addition, it gives a general detox of the body—individuals who struggle with drug abuse struggle to identify their emotions. Volcanic sand therapy allows patients to express their inner feelings and help them release that internal stress to begin the journey to a peaceful and drug-free life. Avatar Residential Detox Center offers promising sand therapy programs proven helpful in assisting individuals to work through the traumatic experiences related to substance addiction.
Connecting to the earth’s energy creates an uplifting shift in our physiology. It brings harmony, stabilizes the body’s primary rhythms, reduces and eliminates pain, reduces or eliminates chronic inflammation, and promotes better health, vitality, and improved sleep.
Benefits of Walking Barefoot on Volcanic Sand:
Walking or running barefoot helps strengthen the muscles in the feet, calves, thighs, and hips. Having proper alignment of the spine allows you to move efficiently so that your body supports your weight without pain-no pain results in reduced craving for substances to numb the pain.
Taking a sensory walk along the sand allows the individual to be present and practice mindfulness. As a result, an individual can emotionally connect and work through the day’s events.
The feet have many reflex points that connect to other parts of your body. So when you walk barefoot on sand, the pressure points in the feet get stimulated naturally with the help of every granule along the way, enhancing the natural healing process of our bodies.
Increase Sensory Experiences
We don’t activate the pressure points in our feet by wearing shoes, and our bodies don’t receive the sensory experiences we can pick up by experiencing different textures barefoot.
Improve Mental/Emotional Health
There’s a good reason that martial arts, yoga, and tai chi are practiced with bare feet. By having the soles of your feet on the sand, you can connect to the earth’s energy. In addition, these barefoot practices can help decrease anxiety and depression and increase the levels of endorphins.
Balance the Body’s Electrical Systems
Up to 60% of the human body is water. Our bodies and our cells both carry an electrical charge. The earth also brings a natural electrical charge, which has a greater negative charge than our bodies. When we walk barefoot on the volcanic sand, we absorb electrons into our bodies from the earth.
Improve Sleep Patterns
By walking barefoot on the sand, an individual releases tension and stress. The nerve endings in the feet have been activated, and now the body can begin to relax. When a person can sleep better, they usually experience less pain and have an easier time combatting challenges.
