today, i attended the whole day conference on ear acupuncture entitled "Healing People, One Needle at a Time" and it was well worth it.
with michael smith, psychiatrist and founding chairman of NADA
USA and janet pimentel-paredes, coordinator and board member
of NADA Philippines
sponsored by the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) Philippines, the conference presented ear acupuncture as a complimentary treatment for psychiatric disorders such as anxiety and panic attacks, major depresssion, and addiction cravings.
wth dr. mac gerald cueto, doctor of metaphysics and
board member of NADA Philippines
NADA's ear treatment process "... consists of the insertion of 5 small, fine, sterile steel needles under the surface of the skin on specific sites on the outer ear. the recipients sit quietly ... for 40-45 minutes, relaxing."
with merlie ching, NADA acupuncture detox specialist
not only did i learn a lot and meet new and old friends, I was also deeply inspired by how NADA puts compassion into action by sending teams of ear acupuncturists to Iligan City to help victims of Sendong's flash floods. God bless their work and may the NADA tribe increase.
