What is the NADA Protocol?

NADA is a standardized auricular acupuncture protocol, which has many documented benefits. It is mostly recognized in its application for: deep relaxation, pain relief & addictions (e.g., recreational + pharmaceutical drugs, smoking, alcohol, food & habits).

It can also aid in stress, insomnia, anxiety or depression.

NADA stands for: National Acupuncture Detoxification Association – Since the 1970s it has been a pivotal solution for the opioid epidemic, was used in the Hawaiian wildfires for trauma, studied for its effects on PTSD and for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and pain management.

The ear is a microcosm for the rest of the body; it is said in textbooks that a fetus sits inside of the ear – the energetics of the organs can be reflected inside the ear. With a total of 10 acupuncture needles, 5 in each ear – Many receivers of this protocol, post-NADA treatment(s) have reported: a calmer state of mind, reduced pain or discomfort and less propensity for a habit or addictive pattern.
