Ear Acupuncture & NADA
Where to find a NADA group
I currently use NADA in my private practice to help with giving up smoking. However I hope to start working with various organisations in Bristol this year.
What to expect
The NADA protocol is given seated rather than lying down which offers many benefits. The main one being that it can be given in a group setting, with as many as 10 people in a group. It is a non-verbal treatment, once the needles are in they are left for about forty minutes in which time patients sit quietly in an almost meditative state. The treatment is incredibly relaxing, it can often induce sleep and brings a feeling of calm almost immediately. This protocol has been used for many decades, and in that time is not only used for addiction but other areas of mental health. It has been taken into prisons, schools and various organisations working with addiction and mental health.
