National Acupuncture Detoxification Association
NADA Group Ear Acupuncture
We offer group NADA and Meditations group classes to help leave you totally relaxed. These classes provide an option to introduce a friend or enhance your current wellness plan to oriental or holistic medicine. NADA stands for National Acupuncture Detoxification Association and consists of five points needled bilaterally in a group setting. NADA has been used for drug addiction, detox, PTSD, anxiety, stress, and to treat postpartum depression for new moms. While the NADA protocol is an important component of any wellness program, it is by no means the only component. A patient’s behavior and attitude, along with the perceptions of the clinician delivering care, are also integral to successful treatment. The NADA protocol is often used with other treatment modalities, such as counseling, wellness protocols, and nutritional therapy to increase the overall effectiveness of care.
What to Expect?
In a typical session, both ears of the patient are needled at the same time, usually around 30 minutes. Unlike many forms of acupuncture, the NADA protocol is delivered in a group setting. This is done to help build support among those being treated, and to break down factors of isolation.
