AcuDetox - 5 Point NADA Protocol Treatment

Stimulate the body's natural healing

The NADA Protocol (National Acupuncture Detoxification Association) is a process that involves the gentle insertion of up to five fine, single use, steralised, stainless steel disposable needles into specific energetic points in the outer ear. No electrical stimulation is used.

The five ear points:

1. Sympathetic: calms the nervous system and helps with overall relaxation.

2. Shen Men / “Spirit Gate”: reduces anxiety and nervousness.

3. Kidney Point: for calming fears and healing internal organs.

4. Liver Point: for detoxification, blood purification, and to quell aggression.

5. Lung Point: promotes aeration and helps clients let go of grief.

The outer ear acts like a switchboard that sends impulses to the brain, which stimulate the release of endorphins, lowers stress and induces relaxation.

This treatment is most suited to group settings, however is still effective in 1to1.

Up to five needles will be inserted in each ear for up to 45 minutes while you sit in a relaxed atmosphere. During this time the you may fall asleep, experience a meditative state or just feel calm and relaxed.

ln the 1970’s the NADA protocol (AcuDetox) was developed to help addicts with their recovery dealing with trauma, anxiety, depression, irritability and cravings. Since then the treatment has been found effective for a wide range of conditions such as stress management, post-traumatic stress, pain management, internal organ balance, mental and emotional balance, detoxification, addiction, substance misuse, weight loss/gain as well as maintaining general wellbeing.

This is not a stand-alone treatment. It works best when used in combination within a comprehensive treatment programme that offers other therapeutic elements.
