Auricular Acupuncture for Recovery
A Tool to Help You Recover
Recovering from Substance Use Disorder comes with unique challenges. You may experience physical and mental withdrawal symptoms. You may have a spike in stress, panic, and anxiety, along with being physically ill or uncomfortable. One of the practices that may help aid in your recovery journey is AcuDetox.
AcuDetox is a form of a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique called Acupuncture, where a practitioner uses small needles to stimulate pressure points throughout the body, which in turn stimulate the nervous system and ease discomfort. AcuDetox uses specific pressure points on a person’s ear to help reduce withdrawal symptoms and provide stress relief.
AcuDetox provides the following benefits:
- Eases withdrawal symptoms
- Promotes stress relief
- Encourages the body’s natural healing capacities
- Plays a part in overall harm reduction for those in recovery
