Comprehensive Mental Health Treatment as Unique as You
Barn Life goes beyond the standards of mental health treatment through a comprehensive and individualized treatment plan that targets both mental and physical imbalances in the body. We believe that the mind cannot effectively heal without healing the body.
Underlying health issues can manifest in mental disorders and worsen over time if left untreated. For us to be effective in helping our participants achieve long-lasting mental wellness, we’ve incorporated the use of holistic modalities that have been practiced for thousands of years.
Barn Life‘s use of kinesiology and medical QiGong modalities are non invasive, personalized, and effective for the relief of immediate symptoms that present as barriers to receiving therapy. These services are offered on a regular, ongoing basis and are coordinated with our clinical team to overcome more challenging barriers to progress. Its healing modalities have been found to restore balance to physical, mental and spiritual deficits.
Our mental health approach is uniquely tailored to the individual. Unlike other programs, we believe well-being can only be achieved through healing the body, the mind, and the spiritual body.
Medical Qigong is a form of ancient Chinese medicine that is based on the belief that all disease is caused by energetic disruptions, which are then mended through these practices. Working together as a clinical team, we utilize medical qigong strategies to intervene during mental health emergencies and as a supplement to traditional treatment models.
Some of our techniques include prescription exercises, meditations, breathing techniques, and muscle testing.
Acupuncture involves the use of small needles on specific points of the body to improve qi flow and release tension. Other similar methods we use include acupressure, moxa burning, and cupping.

Herbs and herbal remedies can have significant benefits for mental health. Our herbal and nutritional education includes the use of herbs, teas, oils, balms, and compress powder.
Massage therapy is great for the body and for the mind. We utilize a number of disciplines to produce the ideal results, such as tissue manipulation & traumatology and channel point therapy.

Holistic Approaches to Therapy
Mindfulness is the process of learning to be present in the moment by observing internal experiences (thoughts & bodily sensations) and external experiences (interactions with others) in a nonjudgmental way.
The foundation of yoga aims to mindfully move one’s body slowly and methodically through poses that heighten or quell certain thought patterns and emotional processes. However, when dealing with psychological illnesses, yoga simply helps one stay grounded in the present moment.
Reiki & Massage
By providing both reiki and massage services, our master healers use gentle touch, on or off the body, to transfer healing energies and remove energetic blockages. Although this approach may not be for everyone, we find getting out of your comfort zone to try something new can be incredibly helpful.
This ancient meditative practice helps reduce stress and improves mental health by incorporating sound into a meditative practice. From Tibetan singing and quartz crystal bowls to gongs tuned to healing frequencies, sound healing amplifies the present moment and promotes a grounded and centered view of life.
Mindfulness practices play a significant role in helping individuals observe their experiences, increase awareness, and tolerate uncomfortable emotions.
Body Centered Therapy
Based on somatic psychology, body-oriented therapies harness the inherent power of sound, touch, movement, and breath to regulate the body & our experience within it.
