Auricular Acupuncture - Addiction Treatment Therapy

Auricular Acupuncture, Addiction Treatment Therapy Acupuncture is a medical technique whereupon filiform needles are inserted into specific points on the body to promote healing and relieve symptoms of ill health.

Acupuncture is thought to have originated in China, but recent evidence suggests that a medical system similar to acupuncture may have been practiced in Central Europe over 5,000 years ago. Acupuncture is based upon empirical observation, and accepted by most medical associations and protocols of evidence-based medicine; it is a safe and useful treatment for a range of conditions.

At A Center for Addiction Recovery, acupuncture treatment is provided as part of our alternative therapies, and has been successful in treating withdrawal symptoms such as nausea and headaches, as well as a host of other conditions. Many clients report increased vitality after treatment, and those clients who are with us to address their drug and alcohol use additionally report reduced cravings for substances.

Acupuncture is relatively painless, and although there is an experience of slight sensations during a session, treatment is usually described as relaxing and peaceful.
