A Life-Long Approach to Healing: Martial Arts-Focused Therapy

A Life-Long Approach to Healing: Martial Arts-Focused Therapy

A Life-Long Approach to Healing: Martial Arts-Focused Therapy

By: Red Mountain SedonaPosted: Section: Articles

Troubled young adults often have difficulty transitioning into adulthood.

It's not because they can’t do it, but because various obstacles have prevented them from doing do. It may be trauma, substance abuse, addictive behavior, or some kind of emotional distress, but the reason behind the troubles can usually be overcome with the right counseling and therapy. Martial arts-focused therapy is just that: the “right” kind of therapy for those who need a little discipline in their lives, but who also can benefit from its multi-faceted ability to help facilitate healing in all areas of life. 

What is Martial Arts-Focused Therapy? 

Martial arts-focused therapy is basically an approach to recovery that includes the martial arts on the path to recovery. While a traditional 12-step program or other types of therapy may be included as well, incorporating the martial arts and using them as a central focus for therapy has added benefits. For instance, blending several different types of martial arts can help in the healing process through each individual art’s strengths. Since each form of martial art is different, the exercise and discipline that is necessary in each form helps to build spiritual peace, physical strength, self-esteem, self-confidence, and the concentration levels that are so necessary for success in the real world. 

Why is Martial Arts-Focused Therapy Better? 

While many programs will help to heal troubled young adults, they don’t always provide the strong base that comes with martial arts. In healing, there is always more than one level, and for those with addiction problems, it is a lifelong battle. With the martial arts, however, you begin to gain wisdom and control over areas of your life that you never knew you could manage, and it simply makes staying on a path to success that much easier overall. 

According to Contemporary Psychotherapy, martial arts has a significant impact on a person’s mental, as well as physical, health. Several studies have indicated that those who participate in martial arts are less aggressive toward others, exhibit characteristics of “enhanced self-regulation” (discipline, impulsiveness, willpower), achieve greater autonomy, depression and anxiety are reduced dramatically, emotions stabilize, and self-esteem increases. 

Imagine if your loved one could be healed through a positive, holistic process. Wouldn’t it be nice to know that they are on a path to healing, and are still learning the kind of life long skills and techniques to help them sustain it? At Red Mountain Sedona, this kind of help is available for troubled young adults. Red Mountain incorporates martial arts therapy to accelerate the healing process, while providing participants with the kind of life skills training they need to thrive. 

Red Mountain Sedona is a place of healing and peace to help young adults escape the turmoil of sadness and addiction, or to merely help them recognize their own potential. To find out more, call us at 855-998-5272.
