An active day of wellness and recovery for the mind and body at the 3rd Annual Holistic Healing and Recovery through Integrative Medicine Conference. The conference includes alternative therapies and inspirational speakers who are designed to promote mental health & recovery from addiction for both professionals and individuals in recovery.
In the morning, keynote Dr. Romie Mushtaq, MD, ABIHM will teach about the mind and body’s response to stress that can create a myriad of mental health-related issues from anxiety, depression, and brain fog. Her three-step program will help you improve mental and physical health by creating a personalized prescription for health. Based on the latest research in neuroscience, positive psychology, and mindfulness this program uses science and medical evidence about shifting your mindset and mindfulness techniques. These will help you connect to calm and feel back in control.
Be empowered directly from those in recovery with a panel moderated by Colette Anderson, LCSW of The Connecticut Women’s Consortium, while a panel from the new Auricular Acupuncture initiative at DMHAS will introduce the NADA model and the new cohorts. In the afternoon, participants choose two active breakout sessions with topics like Emotional Freedom Technique, Ayurveda for Addiction, Mindfulness in Balance, EMDR, Journey of Loss and Recovery: Expressive Art Making, Making Sense Out of Scents and more. Throughout the day, take a moment to renew your energy in the Healing Arts Space staffed by Advocacy Unlimited, TOIVO Center’s Staff.
