The major difference between acupuncture and Acudetox is that general acupuncture is performed by a licensed acupuncturist at certain points all over the body, whereas Acudetox is more discreet since only 5 points in the ears are accessed. Furthermore, Acudetox is more cost-effective as it only costs a fraction of what traditional full-body acupuncture costs.
It is important to note, however, that even though Acudetox is performed only on the ears, it is just as effective as full-body acupuncture for gaining relief from symptoms since the whole human body is mapped in the ear. Therefore, similar to acupressure or reflexology, we can address issues in various systems of the body simply by using the ear as a “gateway” to these systems.
The NADA protocol of Acudetox is simply the name for the protocol of the series of 5 tiny needles that are placed at specific points in the ear.
This procedure called AcuDetox involves gently placing five small, sterilized disposable needles into specific sites on each ear. After the placement occurs, it takes between thirty and forty-five minutes for the treatment to take effect. During that time, you will relax and enjoy some much need quiet time.
After the treatment there can be pin point bleeding. Slight headache can occur and some tiredness after your session that’s just proof of how quick and effective this treatment works.
