NADA Training (become a detox acupuncture specialist)
This relaxing treatment, delivered by licensed certified Acupuncture Detoxification Specialists according to the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) protocol can enhance recovery at any phase. It is unique, in that it is effective regardless of the client’s level of motivation and tends to increase her ability to effectively participate in other aspects of therapy. It opens up the possibilities of the body, mind, and spirit, treating the whole person.
AcuDetox is performed daily by a licensed specialist at our facility and it involves the placement of acupuncture needles in five points on each ear. Once the needles are placed, our clients sit in our community room for 30 to 45 minutes, while they quietly relax.
AcuDetox is also known as: acupuncture detoxification, auriculoacupuncture, auriculotherapy, ear acupuncture, and five-point ear acupuncture.
The needles we use are fine gauge, disposable, sterilized, and stainless steel. If you are afraid they might cause you pain, don’t worry – you’ll barely feel a quick prick as each needle enters your skin.
Each of the five points in the ear corresponds to a specific point in the body. One affects the parasympathetic nervous system and the others affect the heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys. By activating these points through acupuncture, your body will become more relaxed, while also becoming more effective at cleansing your system of any toxins.
AcuDetox therapy involves gently placing five small-sterilized disposable stainless steel needles in specific sites in each ear and leaving them in while clients sit quietly for 30 to 45 minutes. Stimulation of these ear points reduces stress and anxiety, lessens depression and insomnia, and alleviates the craving for substances, thus aiding in recovery.
AcuDetox therapy is recommended daily for acute detoxification, three times per week for post-acute withdrawal or smoking cessation, and weekly for relapse prevention.
Acupressure seeds are effective for use between AcuDetox therapy sessions or for individuals who do not wish to be treated with needles. These small seeds are placed on the backs of the ears and provide a low-level of pressure to a relaxing point, which may be increased by pressing on the seeds during moments of tension or craving. Seeds typically stay on for several days to a week and may be removed at any time.
The benefits of AcuDetox are numerous. Studies have shown that it can relieve withdrawal symptoms, reduce cravings, ease stress and anxiety, improve sleep, lessen depression, and alleviate aches and pains.
The NADA two-day auricular detoxification course is a two-part training. The first two days are the didactic/experiential portion of the training in order to become an Auricular Detox Specialist (ADS). Much of the didactic potion of the training will be experiential throughout.
You will receive a 210 page-training manual, sharps container, and individualized training in order to perform this five-point auricular acupuncture protocol. You will also receive ongoing support from your instructor; long after the course has been completed. I am committed to the ongoing process and delivery of this protocol and the far-reaching positive effects it has on the lives of people everywhere.
Each training day begins with an AcuDetox session, an understanding of addictions and behavioral health, and the impact that NADA has on them, the history of the national Acupuncture Detoxification Association, video lecture, and most importantly experiential learning.
