Ear Accupuncture detox can help with addiction therapies.

Studies have shown that auricular (ear) acupuncture can be an effective in helping people with addictions, used in conjunction with reflexology and acupressure points on hands and body.

(The client can be taught the location of these points to apply pellet therapy, so that they can continue self-treatment at home in between visits to the therapist.)

Ear acupuncture and associated therapies have been found to be effective in clients.

In ear acupuncture tiny thin needles are inserted into points in the outer ear for around 20 minutes.

After the needles are withdrawn small pellets can be taped to the point so that the client can continue self-treatment by applying gentle pressure to the pellet whenever they feel a craving.

This pressure is thought to stimulate release of endorphins from the brain which continue the process of detoxifying and also soothes any feelings of anxiety, stress and depression associated with withdrawal symptoms.

These pellets which can be left in place for 2-3 days, continually stimulating the accupressure point.
