Are you looking for a method to help motivate you for a major life change? If your body is impaired due to a toxic state, AcuDetox can help you gain motivation. AcuDetox is helpful with acute detoxification, discontinuing or changing psychiatric medications, and habit cessation. It is helpful to have acupuncture detoxification combined with botanical medicines to cleanse and detoxify major body organs and systems prior to conception, travel, or any upcoming stressful event.
Acupuncture Detoxification Therapy (acuDetox) can enhance your body’s resilience during any phase of detoxification. It is unique, in that it is helpful with people at any motivation level. Those who need to accomplish significant life changes can start with acuDetox as it opens up pathways for change in the body, mind, and spirit treating the whole person.
AcuDetox therapy involves gently placing five small sterilized, disposable, stainless steel needles in specific sites in each ear. Stimulation of these ear points can help reduce stress and anxiety, lessen depression and insomnia, and alleviate the craving for substances whether it be food, alcohol, drugs or pharmaceuticals.
AcuDetox therapy is recommended 4 times a week for acute detoxification, two times per week after withdrawal or for smoking cessation, and weekly for relapse prevention.
AcuDetox also uses acupressure seeds which are effective for use between Acudetox therapy sessions or for individuals who do not wish to be treated with needles. These small seeds are placed on the back of the ear and provide a low level of pressure to a relaxing point, which may be increased by pressing on the seeds during moments of tension or craving. Seeds typically stay on for several days to a week and may be removed at any time.
