Acupuncture: NADA Protocol
Auricular 5 point Ear Acupuncture £25
The NADA treatment model follows the NADA U.S. five-point training protocol, developed at the Lincoln Memorial Hospital, Lincoln Recovery Centre in New York.
The process involves the gentle insertion of up to five fine, single use, sterilised, stainless steel disposable needles into specific energetic points in the outer ear. No electrical stimulation is used.
The outer ear acts like a switchboard that sends impulses to the brain, which stimulate the release of endorphins, lowers stress and induces relaxation. The 5 points on an ear helps deliver a feeling of calmness and relaxation to assist with menopausal sweats symptoms, smoking cessation, ADHD and many more.
- Auricular 5 point Ear Acupuncture £25 includes initial assessment
- Subsequent appointments in a 6-week course cost £15 each
Reflexology is an alternative treatment for a variety of conditions and has been in use for thousands of years.
