Auricular Acu Clinic
For Stress-Relief, Addictions, Mental Health, Trauma
Our Auricular Acu-Group Sessions include a specialized protocol of acupuncture that is performed by placing five thin, sterile, single-use needles at specific acupoints on the outer ear. The needles are generally left in place for approximetaly 20 minutes. The circle is conducted in silence, allowing each person to remain in a peaceful, silent state (meditation, prayer, reflection). The protocol is helpful in supporting the challenges of emotional and mental health, addictions, anxiety, stress, trauma, cravings. All the five points serve to bring balance to one's physical and mental states. Specifically, needling the Sympathetic and Shen/Mind points produces calming, relaxing and centering effects. The other three points, Kidney, Liver and Lung, correspond to yin organ systems in Chinese medicine. The yin organs are seen as internal, nourishing, nurturing, restorative and supportive. In modern Western medicine, kidney, liver and lung relate to detoxification and cleansing (the organs of elimination). Participants have an opportunity to experience their internal process as a source of strength and renewal. *Email for locations and times.
