FREE STRESS REDUCTION CLINIC

STRESS   ANXIETY  PTSD   ADDICTIONS
Community Acupuncture Clinic     
7-8pm    Last Wednesday of the month
Cruise Chiropractic    9 Livingston Ave in Grimsby
.
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. 
.
You can leave or stay and talk about how the treatment effected you. You pay as much as you want. We have no expectations about payment. Payments cover the cost of needles and the rest goes to disaster relief.
.
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.

TCM Thursdays @ Cruise Chiropractic & Associates in Grimsby

Four weeks ago I started seeing patients at a great chiropractic clinic in Grimsby called Cruise Chiropractic & Associates (9 Livingston Avenue). I am thrilled in so many ways by this clinic. They have a team of health practitioners including RMTs, Therapists, ND, PT, OT, Osteopath, and 2 great Chiropractors. They just needed a TCM Dr. which I will be, most likely next year (my college, the CTCMPAO, is in the process of letting doctors call themselves doctors once approved). We share strategies between practitioners for improved patient outcomes. The location is beautiful. And I am impressed by my colleagues there. Please drop by. You are in good hands with our team. For an appointment call (905) 945-4481 and tell them I sent you.
