Auricular Acupuncture

NADA-UK is a charity founded to support development and training in a five point auricular acupuncture treatment known as the NADA protocol. The protocol was initially developed to aid relaxation and wellbeing for people suffering with substance misuse problems, and/or in recovery. However, in more recent years other areas of treatment that incorporate the NADA protocol as an effective interventions are:

  • stress, anxiety management & panic disorder
  • trauma recovery in communities following major catastrophes
  • reduction of withdrawal symptoms
  • Marked relaxation, a feeling of well being
  • Improved sleep patterns
  • Improvement of health problems which often accompany long-term alcohol and drug misuse
  • Ameliorating side effects from drug treatment in cancer
  • Relaxation in young people with behavioural disorders.
