Supporting Opportunities to
Enhance Well-Being For All

NADA Ear Acupuncture Program

National Acupuncture Detox Association (NADA) founded in 1970, developed an ear acupuncture protocol to reduce the negative effects of stress and trauma by detoxing the body and relaxing the nervous system. This protocol is now being used in communities all over the world.

Healing Opportunities is committed to making this highly effective treatment accessible to our community, helping people live healthier, more balanced lives.


Our NADA Ear Acupuncture Program uses a standardized, documented five-point treatment protocol with:

  • On site treatments once a week by a licensed acupuncturist
  • Quick and efficient duration: under an hour
  • Employees treated in a seated group setting
  • Utilizes your existing meeting space.

What’s included:

  • Group Orientation
  • Initial Assessment
  • Weekly Ear Acupunture
  • Calming Hot Herbal Tea
  • Follow-Up Survey/Results

This treatment protocol is being used successfully worldwide to enhance brain function. MRI’s reveal that after acupuncture, brain images show less indication of stress and and an increase of blood flow.

A customized wellness program can be tailored to your company’s objectives.
