Drug Detox with Acupuncture

Acupuncture may Eliminate any addictions to prescription, pain killers, any kind of narcotics or alcohol.
The National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) has developed a protocol to treat addiction using points in the ears with no pain.
You will receive Auricular Therapy (with needles) in a relaxing setting and follow up 3 times a week as needed.

The original NADA protocol consisted of electrical stimulation on the Lung point of a patient’s ear. It was soon discovered, however, that manual needling of the same point produced a more prolonged effect than that produced by electric stimulation. Gradually, the protocol was expanded by adding Shen Men, a well-known ear point that produces a sensation of relaxation. Over the next few years, other points were added based on pain resistance, sensitivity, and other clinical factors. The NADA protocol as it exists today consists of the insertion of small, stainless-steel, disposable acupuncture needles into five points on the outer surface of a person’s ear. The points used in the NADA protocol are Sympathetic, Shen Men, Kidney, Liver, and Lung.

In a typical session, both ears of the patient are needled at the same time, usually for between 30 minutes and 45 minutes. Unlike many forms of acupuncture, the NADA protocol is delivered in a group setting. This is done to help build support among those being treated, and to break down factors of isolation.

 

Acupuncture can assist the body in becoming naturally balanced through the use of meridian point therapy. Your treatment may also include cupping to eliminate congestion and toxins as well as herbal therapy to assist with detox and eliminating harmful substances from your body naturally. Points such as the shen-men can naturally give you an endorphin boost and aid in eliminating withdrawal symptoms from toxic substances.
