The NADA Protocol of auricular acupuncture to reduce cravings, promote healing, improve sleep and provide relief from stress and emotional trauma.
The NADA protocol of auricular acupuncture involves the application of 5 fine gauge sterilised one time use stainless steel needles inserted in strategic designated places around the outer ear. The treatment which is endorsed and used in the NHS lasts for 30 minutes with each needle stimulating a specific part of the body to function with the accumulative effect being clinically proven to reduce cravings, promote healing, improve sleep and provide relief from stress and emotional trauma through an increased sense of general well-being.
To intensify the effects of the treatment a gold bead can be placed upon the Shen Men point to keep the point stimulated stronger for longer. This bead can be massaged by the patient to add additional stimulation and generate a feeling of calm and relaxation. The bead is not permanent and will remain adhered to the ear depending on multiple factors including shape of the ear, skin type and personal care.
Each needle is specifically placed to stimulate different parts of the body to function.
