Auricular acupuncture (of the ear) is a treatment that has been derived from Traditional Chinese Acupuncture. Using the NADA five-point protocol, it can be used for stress, depression, anxiety and substance misuse. As well as smoking cessation. These five points can be used all together or several at a time, to help alleviate all the ailments mentioned. A series of treatments are recommended but this can also be used in group sessions to promote wellbeing, help with smoking cessation and reduce anxiety.
