NADA 5 Point Auricular Acupuncture: Luna Counseling is now offering NADA treatments. What is the NADA Model? A non-verbal approach to healing that involves the gentle placement of up to five small, sterilized disposable needles into specific sites on each ear. The recipients sit quietly in an individual or group setting for 30-45 minutes.
NADA ear acupuncture is an adjunct therapy which is clinically effective, cost-efficient, drug-free and compatible cross-culturally. It can easily be established within behavioral health, addictions or disaster relief settings or in any location that a group of people can sit together. The combined application of acupuncture with counseling, education, medical support and self-help groups such as AA and NA enhances opportunities for success.
