Auricular Acupuncture involves the gentle placement of up to five small, sterilized disposable needles into specific sites on each ear.
The recipient can then sit quietly for up to 30-45 minutes allowing the treatment to take effect.
Auricular acupuncture is an adjunct therapy which is clinically effective, cost-efficient and drug-free.
The combined application of acupuncture with counselling, education, medical support and self-help groups such as AA and NA enhances opportunities for success.

Reduced cravings for alcohol and drugs, including nicotine.
Minimized withdrawal symptoms.
Increased calmness, better sleep, and less agitation.
Relief from stress and emotional trauma.

A discovery of inner quiet and strength.
