This is a specific set of 5 points on the surface of the ear. This treatment is used to support people dealing with substance use or the effects of natural or emotional disaster, and all kinds of trauma. Frequency of treatment especially in the early stage is critical. The benefits reported by clients and clinicians are improved program retention, a more optimistic and cooperative attitude toward the process of recovery, as well as reductions in cravings, anxiety, sleep disturbance and need for pharmaceuticals. You do not need to book a first community acupuncture appointment even if you have never come for acupuncture at Six Degrees. We only ask that you fill out a simple consent form when you arrive, and there is no expectation to talk about your conditions during your treatment.
