NADA GB supports the development and training in the five point ear acupuncture treatment known as the NADA protocol. Initially used as an effective system for helping addiction and substance misuse, the NADA protocol has since proven successful when integrated as part of an holistic health plan to support:

+

• Post traumatic stress syndrome
• General stress
• Trauma recovery in communities following major catastrophes
• Mental health
• Anxiety management and panic disorder
• Aiding recovery from some prescribed medication dependency
• Promotes relaxation in young people with behavioural disorders
• Smoking cessation
• Weight loss / gain
• Ameliorating side effects from drug treatment in cancer, HEP C, HIV/AIDS
• Helps the Immune system
• The protocol is known to have a calming effect on the central nervous system.

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 five ear points +

1) Sympathetic – calms the nervous system and helps with overall relaxation.
(2) Shen Men / “Spirit Gate” – reduces anxiety and nervousness.
(3) Kidney Point – for calming fears and healing internal organs.
(4) Liver Point – for detoxification, blood purification, and to quell aggression.
(5) Lung Point – promotes aeration and helps clients let go of grief.

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 NADA-system is most suited to group settings. An NADA Practitioner will insert up to five needles in each ear for up to 45 minutes while clients sit in a relaxed atmosphere. During this time the client may fall asleep, experience a meditative state or just feel calm and relaxed. ln the 1970’s the NADA protocol was developed to help addicts with their recovery dealing with trauma, anxiety, depression, irritability and cravings. Since then NADA protocol has been found effective for a wide range of conditions. Acupuncturist Without Borders has used it extensively in treating trauma during and after hurricane Katrina and have begun a national military outreach to veterans.

Group Acupuncture is simple and effective. There is no appointment necessary, no intake, no need to talk of past experiences. individuals simply come in and experience the benefits of the acupuncture. The NADA protocol is not a stand-alone treatment. It works best when used in combination within a comprehensive treatment programme that offers other therapeutic elements such as counselling, education, family involvement, peer/community support groups and supportive medical healthcare.
