  • One of the more interesting treatments that is often times used in acupuncture is what's

  • known as a Auriculotherapy. So we use a smaller needle, known as an ear needle in order to

  • do treatments based on the ear. A lot of people are familiar with reflexology, when we press

  • on the bottom of the foot in order to bring about certain treatments. And so in our case,

  • we use the ear in a similar way that some people use the bottom of the foot. So I want

  • to just demonstrate to you using the smaller filiform needles on a particular treatment

  • that's use for a lot of addictions. This particular treatment is known as the NADA protocol. It

  • was actually develop in the Harlans specifically for heroin addiction. But now with practice

  • and experimentation, they found that it's very effective for variety of different types

  • of treatments, anything from cigarettes to alcohol to even food addiction. So this first

  • point that I did was known as Zhang Men helps the kind of help calm the mind. The next one

  • here is known as the Sympathetic, and it helps to normalize both the para-sympathetic and

  • the sympathetic nervous system. This next point is known as the liver point. And in

  • Chinese medicine, when we talk about the liver, we're usually referring to things like depression,

  • irritability, stresses or things like that. Next one is here, is known as the kidney.

  • The kidney gives us will power and will power is very important obviously when trying to

  • deal with addictions. And the last point is known as the lung point. The lung point actually

  • is just very relaxing and in the case of stop smoking is very effective and helping to strengthen

  • the lung. So remember that oftentimes you won't have an ear problem, but your practitioner

  • may end up working on your ear a great deal especially if you're working on addictions

  • and certain types of stress. So please enjoy your acupuncture treatment and I hope you're

  • able to take a nice relaxing nap during it.
