Acupuncture has been proven to be effective in addiction treatment, and it is available to you during your stay at Harmony Place.
Acupuncture is a 2000-year-old Chinese medical practice that involves inserting tiny needles into the body’s tissues to adjust nerves or hormones. It is known to reduce anxiety and agitation while facilitating calm and receptive behavior. Levels of serotonin, dopamine and GABA – the ‘feel good’ neurotransmitters in the brain – are known to rise significantly as the result of an acupuncture session. This can help you become more relaxed; suppress cravings, overcome depression and insomnia, and boost immunity.
The NADA (National Acupuncture Detoxification Association) Protocol is a form of addiction therapy used at Harmony Place to treat physical pain, supplement emotional well-being, and assist with the symptoms and results of chemical addiction and withdrawal. It is very non-invasive as the auricular treatment focuses on five points on the ear. Each of these points correspond with healing a specific ailment, be it physical or emotional. Harmony Place works closely with a NADA Protocol expert who is an accomplished and compassionate licensed acupuncturist with a proven record of success.
