Provision of Auricular Acupuncture and Acupressure in a University Setting
Oyola-Santiago, Tamara; Knopf, Rachel; Robin, Tracy; Harvey, Kristen
Journal of American College Health, v61 n7 p432-434 2013
Auricular acupuncture using the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) protocol stimulates 5 points in each ear--the Shen Men, sympathetic nervous system, liver, kidney, and lung. This protocol is also known as Acu Detox, and has been used for recovery in community-based settings and drug use treatment programs. It has also been proven to be effective in alleviating stress and enhancing a general sense of well-being. This article describes the auricular acupuncture and acupressure program developed for a university setting and its use as a tool to enhance harm reduction and mental health services.
