Stress Detox Treatment
Are you feeling tired or stress or maybe suffer from anxiety? At Pillars of Wellness, we provide you with the comfort of a home and the expertise of professional health practitioners to maximize your health and speed of recovery.
The Stress Detox treatment involves the gentle placement of five small, sterilized, disposable stainless-steel needles in specific sites on each ear of a patient undergoing treatment.
The recipients sit quietly in a group setting for 30-45 minutes. This is regulated by The National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA)-standardized 3- to 5-point ear acupuncture protocol.
The treatment is mostly a non-verbal process with minimal interaction between patient and practitioner. There is no patient assessment conducted and it is usually done in a larger room to accommodate other patients who will undergo the same treatment. We call this “community acupuncture”. Sometimes, it’s done privately one-on-one.
The Stress Detox treatment is completely safe for those receiving treatments from other health care providers.
Stress Detox has been shown to significantly reduce stress, anxiety, insomnia, agitation, decrease cravings for alcohol, drugs, smoking, withdrawal symptoms and post traumatic stress disorder.
Stress Detox often helps participants become relaxed and more comfortable with their own thoughts and emotions enabling them to experience a sense of ‘letting go’ of tensions and apprehensions and supporting quiet participation in a group setting.
Stress Detox facilitates relationships with self and others.
Acupuncture needles don’t heal the patient; rather they simply assist the body to heal itself. It stimulates the healing power already present within.
Stress Detox opens the possibilities on the body, mind and spirit levels.
