Highest Standards, Nationally Recognized:

If you struggle with depression, then you know how it feels to be isolated and wondering where you fit within this world. Depression is a harmful disease that involves changes in sleep, appetite, energy level, concentration, daily behavior, self-esteem, and more. Other physical signs of depression may include migraines, joint pain such as fibromyalgia, digestive problems such as constipation and bloating, chest pain, back pain with tension in the neck, and more – all of which can make daily life more and more difficult if not treated. Previous studies have shown that most people with depression experience aches and pains; if you’ve been struggling with symptoms of depression, Avalon Malibu can help you reach healing at the levels of your mind, body and spirit.

Research has shown that depression can grealty help reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation, and can help with pain management as well.
