“NADA Acupuncture teaches us to relax from the inside out.” This increased sense of calm and the quieting of symptoms that occurs as a result of the acupuncture treatment stimulates one’ own “Qi” (one’s inner energy) and brings us back into a more balanced state and chance to communicate. As we become calmer inside, we become much more aware of over selves and others. From this quieter, inner place we can then make more careful choices in our reactions to life situations.
Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture was developed by the ancient Chinese. It consists of stimulating designated points on the skin by the insertion of sterilized needles at specific points related to internal body function. Energy or Qi (pronounced ‘Chi’) moves through out the body and can become blocked, too week or stagnant. Auricular acupuncture balances this energy.
Physically auricular acupuncture relaxes and reduces stress, decreases pain and increases energy and immunity and normalizes sleep. Mentally and emotionally it helps you feel clear, alert, calm and focused.
Most people barely feel the needles go in. Sometimes a point will be sensitive but this small sting or pinch only lasts for a second. Acupuncture needles are very different from hypodermic needles. They are not hollow and are much thinner.
Virtually none. The needles are sterilized and are used only once.
Initially, you need to have daily 3 point acupuncture (NADA protocol) for forty five minutes for a week. Next two weeks on alternate days and then on once in a week. It is a balancing process of the body. Treatment is offered “on demand” which reduces conflict and facilitates counseling.
Acu-wellness by itself will not get or keep someone clean. It is an adjunctive therapy not stand alone intervention. Acu-wellness has to be integrated within a comprehensive treatment framework.
Dr. Michael O. Smith psychiatrist & acupuncturist says “acupuncture teaches the person to relax from the inside out.” This increased sense of calm and the quieting of symptoms that occurs as a result of the acupuncture treatment stimulates patients’ own “Qi” (one’s inner energy) and brings them back into a more balanced state. As the person become calmer inside, they become much more aware of themselves and others. From this quieter, inner place the person can then make more careful choices in his/her reactions to life situations.
I’d like to thank Sunita Jee for giving me the chance to exercise acupuncture skills. just after the needles were removed I felt a sense of lightness, relief n peace flowing in my brain when i closed my eyes. It’s a bit difficult for me to express that nice soothing feeling in words yeah but that’s what I felt.
For me it is a pleasure to stay here in Delhi, working for Nada India Foundation.
The people are extremely helpfully and friendly. The experience with the organization, team work, to come in contact with local people, patience, another culture and health system.
It is a most impressive enrichment experience of my life!

How are you ? I am Kalpesh (I was trained with Dr. Nayna Shah from Baroda in ear acupuncture and NADA protocol )…
i am mainly working with critical long term chronic disease like Chronic reneal failure , and organ malfunction , in naturopathy center. Result of ear acupuncture is amazing and surprising. if working experience of ear acupuncture helps in growth for anyone , i can share that experience also.
Attending the training programme of ear acupuncture was refreshing experience for me. Spending time with Dr. Michel Smith and Mr. Vatsyayan was motivating. I found this workshop very useful for my personal growth and of worth for my professional practice at my clinic. I would like to share that while applying the behavior therapies especially individual counseling sessions, it was always very difficult to give something concrete to the clients/patients. I found that before applying any behaviour therapy a session of acudetox will help me and the client to get ready for the therapy. I am looking forward to use this as a tool for rapport establishment in technical counseling sessions.
As does a soap cleans our body from dirt likewise acupuncture cleans our system and mind, I m feeling lighter as is all dirt from my mind got washed away
A quite different sensation is felt in lower limbs after inserting acupuncture needles initially, after 30-40 min my mind got static and I went in a sleeping mode, I hardly realized someone is near about me.
I was very apprehensive before applying the needles, a pain equaling to nothing is felt after application, felt as if all the energy of body got transferred to one part of body. I am feeling very relaxed.
All attention got focused at the needles at first but soon felt a lot relaxed and sleepy.
I felt as if I went in a completely different world, as if I was with my family, it was amazing, feeling really good and comfortable.
At first, I was very scared but later, I also tried. It made me feel calm from within.
I used to think a lot and thus unable to sleep. But after receiving acupuncture, I have been sleeping well.
I was never hungry before. I didnt want to eat much. But after acupuncture, I am now hungry most of the time
Each time, I sense I m getting stressed out, I ask the staff here to give me acupuncture. After that I feel fine.
It has helped me a lot, specially my kneee which used to hurt a lot. Now its much better.
At first, I did not believe that it would work. But once I tried it, I knew it was good for me
Acudetox brings back my attention to small, small activities to my body. Good sleep!!
Amazing ,feeling good, good experience and want to know more about Acudetox…
There was body pain before acudetox no pain after acudetox.
Mind was at peace
