Community acupuncture is the practice of providing acupuncture in a community setting. We all benefit when one of us feels better. In the clinic we use the NADA protocol.
You walk in. You sign a waiver. You sit down. You are in a big quiet room with other people just like you. You all sit in a circle. Your acupuncturist, Christopher Cole, will put 5 needles in each of your ears. You sit quietly for up to 45 minutes. He takes out the needles. You feel better.
$5 Payments cover the cost of needles and the room rental.
What is the “NADA protocol”?
At five designated ear points in each auricle (outer ear), clinicians apply fine gauge, sterilized, one-time use stainless steel needles just under the skin, where they remain for up to a 45 minutes while the client relaxes quietly in a comfortable chair. Ordinarily, groups of clients sit together while undergoing the treatment. The procedure functions as an adjunct to a comprehensive treatment program offering the basic therapeutic elements of counselling, education, family involvement, mutual support group involvement, supportive health care of a general nature. Clients in all types of treatment settings can utilize this treatment. Among the benefits reported by clients and clinicians are improved program retention, a more optimistic and cooperative attitude toward the process of recovery, as well as reductions in cravings, anxiety, sleep disturbance and need for pharmaceuticals. The NADA protocol is also known commonly referred to as: acu detox, acupuncture detoxification, five point ear acupuncture protocol, five point protocol, 5NP.
