Ear Acupuncture originated in China in 5000BC and has been developed in the West since the 1970's. Specific treatment points were identified in America by the National Auricular Detoxification Association (NADA) which alleviated detoxification symptoms and cravings for drugs and alcohol. These points have been found to be very effective for general health and well-being.
Ear Acupuncture is a simple, safe and effective approach which allows a large number of people to simultaneously receive treatment and improve the quality of their health and wellbeing. Results can be achieved within the first session, but regular treatments enhance the beneficial effects.
Small sterile disposable needles are inserted just under the skin surface to stimulate the body to achieve balance and harmony. No diagnosis or differentiation is required or given. The therapist is focused on wellness, while encouraging the mind and body to reach optimum performance.
The ear acupuncture is enhanced by the use of simple Chi Kung (traditional Chinese self-healing exercises) during the treatments. Clients can then apply these techniques for themselves at any time to improve their health and well-being.
Ear Acupuncture is particularly effective for:
* Mental Health Problems
* Eating Disorders
* Stress Management
* Drug and Alcohol Withdrawal
* Stopping Smoking
Common Benefits of a Treatement:
* Stress Reduction
* Better Sleep
* Better Digestion
* Improved Self Confidence and Positive Attitude

Ear Acupuncture is ideal for use in a group/workplace setting.
It is a simple, safe and effective therapy in which a large number of people can simultaneously receive treatment and improve the quality of their health and work performance. Amazing results can be achieved within just one session, which can take no more than 20 minutes out of a normal working day. New research has highlighted many potential benefits of Ear Acupuncture for the reduction of stress in the workplace. It helps people to achieve a relaxed, yet focused, state of being, and to maintain this in even the most challenging environments. In addition, people discover profound benefits of clarity of mind and improvement in their moods.
