- Chronic pain group with TENS units, cupping, as well as individualized acupuncture multiple times a week throughout stay.
- Topicals for pain and anxiety daily (herbal patches, magnets, medicated oils, essential oils, kinesio tape, acupressure rings, teas, and ear seeds).
- Education on how to naturally take care of the body and mind in conjunction with Western medication and information for how to access all services and products outside of Seabrook.
- Amethyst BioMat: a medical device that uses a combination of amethyst stones and fabrics to generate far infrared rays that are then transferred to the body as heat. Far infrared rays warm the body on the inside, increasing blood circulation and lymph flow.
- Hydro Massage Bed: a convenient, dry, full-body massage with the use of pressurized water.
- Light Box: produces light that simulates the sunlight that’s missing during the darker winter months. May improve Seasonal Affective Disorder and depression by encouraging the brain to reduce the production of melatonin (a hormone that makes you sleepy) and increase the production of serotonin (a hormone that affects your mood).
- Zero gravity chair: a recliner that tips you back until your head is slightly below your feet so that there is zero gravity putting pressure on the body. It mostly treats back pain but also reduces body tension.
