Acudetox, also called Acupuncture Detoxification, utilizes principles of both Chinese medicine and traditional Western therapies.
It is specifically designed to treat patients struggling with addiction. Treatable addictions include cigarettes, drugs and alcohol, sugar, over-eating, over-working, and more.
Following treatment, clients report a significant decrease in cravings, withdrawal symptoms, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and aggression.
What is an Acudetox treatment like?
Acudetox is a special type of acupuncture treatment. It involves the gentle placement of five small, thin, sterilized, disposable stainless steel needles into specific sites on a patient’s ears. In addition, acupuncturists work to identify triggers and offer coaching to ease patients’ daily addiction struggles. Acudetox acupuncture works on the major detoxification organs of the body. Using a holistic method, each needle opens up possibilities in the body, mind, and spirit.
Benefits of Acudetox:
Acudetox has been shown to significantly decrease cravings for alcohol and drugs, cigarettes, and sugar and other foods, as well as induce an extreme sense of calm in the body. It has also been shown to decrease withdrawal symptoms, lessen the occurrence of relapse, aid in inpatient detox admissions, and reduce anxiety, insomnia, and agitation. Acudetox allows a patient to release the object of his or her addiction and can aid in stress management.
