EMDR,  ACUDETOX Ear acupuncture training and treatment
What is Acupuncture? What is EMDR?

Acupuncture is the world’s oldest science. It has been around for 3,000 to 5,000 years. Auricular (ear) acupuncture is more recent, having been created and perfected in the last 60 years by both Chinese and French physicians who were seeking new techniques. It is based on the fact that the ear has points that reflect all areas of the body and are mapped out on the ear like an infant, upside down, in a fetal position.

Eastern medicine holds that there is an extensive and complete energy system that flows through the body along twelve main meridians and more than a dozen lesser meridians. When this stream flows freely, the body is in balance and healthy. Interruptions and blockages in these normally free-flowing energy streams cause stagnation, illness, disease and discomfort. Simply stated, the needles are inserted to get the energy flowing more freely and restore balance to the body. In terms of Western medicine, acupuncture creates healing in the hormonal, nervous, muscular and vascular systems of the body, mind and spirit. 

What can I expect during an acupuncture session?

Michael O. Smith, MD, Dipl.Ac, psychiatrist and acupuncturist, developed the wellness protocol you will receive and learn about.  Dr. Smith is recognized worldwide for his expertise and understanding of balance and energetic healing through ear acupuncture. The wellness protocol is also known as the NADA or ACU-DETOX protocol and is used by the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA), founded by Dr. Smith, for the treatment of addictions and behavioral health issues by facilitating balance and wholeness in the body, mind and spirit. This protocol is used worldwide. 

A trained Acu-Detox Specialist (ADS) will place five tiny, sterile acupuncture needles of the finest filament steel available in each ear. Needles are left in for 30-45 minutes. There may be some slight discomfort at the time of insertion. This will pass quickly. Occasionally, a lightheaded-feeling may occur. There also may be some slight bleeding when the needles are withdrawn. The five points that will be used are:

  • Shen Men or Spirit Gate - used for calming and relaxing. This point connects body, mind and spirit, which in Chinese Medicine are considered one.
  • Sympathetic - used for relieving tension. It also has a calming effect on the digestive system.
  • Liver - used to detoxify the body and emotions.
  • Kidney - used to strengthen the body. This allows release of fear and the ability to access the body’s wisdom.
  • Lung - used to help open respiration.
