Ear acupuncture techniques are often used in conjunction with body points or as a
stand-alone treatment. Auricular acupuncture is very effective in calming the nervous system and targeting pain in the body. The ear is a microsystem consisting of many points correlating directly to various parts of the brain and body, communicating directly with the central nervous system.
The Nada / Acu-detox protocol is a set of 5 ear acupuncture points used to assist people managing withdrawal, detox or recovery from drug and alcohol afflictions, trauma, emotional issues, depression, anxiety, and PTSD. This protocol is widely used in the U.S.A alongside treatment programs for drug and alcohol rehabilitation, rescue and first responders support services, and various mental health support services.
