Survivors of torture may have endured extreme deprivation, physical pain and psychological abuse. This can have ongoing effects on their general health, sleep, concentration, trust and sometimes, their capacity for intimacy. Foundation House has developed innovative ways to address the wide spectrum of health issues that survivors often face.
Foundation House’s Complementary Therapies program of nutritional, herbal and tactile therapies combined with psychological, social and medical services has created a unique and holistic range of support to aid recovery.
Foundation House’s programs of traditional medicine and complementary therapies have been embraced by clients from cultures in which traditional herbal remedies are widely used and often preferred over other approaches.
Massage therapy has also proven to be extremely beneficial for many clients. Given that many clients have experienced terrible damage and pain by the hands of another person, it’s remarkable that through massage therapy, the human hand can contribute to the healing process.
