Many people have never heard of it and aren’t aware of the beneficial effects that Acudetox can have on ones wellbeing, alleviating, stress, anxiety, anger management issues  and during recovery from addiction. Perhaps when you hear that the approach involves acupuncture, you may be concerned that it is a very new age technique that will probably hurt and won’t offer any real medically-proven results. 


The Basics – What is Acudetox?

Acudetox PointsAcuDetox is performed by a licensed specialist and it involves the placement of acupuncture needles in five points on each ear.  Once the needles are placed, the client(s) relaxes in a seated position 30 to 45 minutes. This can be an individual session or performed in a group.



AcuDetox is also known as: 

  • acupuncture detoxification
  • auriculoacupuncture
  • auriculotherapy
  • ear acupuncture
  • five-point ear acupuncture

The needles are fine gauge, disposable, sterilised, and stainless steel.  

Each of the five points in the ear corresponds to a specific point in the body.  One affects the parasympathetic nervous system and the others affect the heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys.  By activating these points through acupuncture, your body will become more relaxed, while also becoming more effective at cleansing your system of any toxins.

The benefits of AcuDetox are numerous.  

Studies have shown that it can relieve withdrawal symptoms, reduce cravings, ease stress and anxiety, improve sleep, lessen depression, and alleviate aches and pains.

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) /Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder(ADHD), Anger Management, Bipolar Disorder, Insomnia, and  Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders, are but a few of the many ailments that can be alleviated by ACUDETOX.


The treatment recognises that not one single component of a comprehensive recovery or health programme can be seen as a “cure” or “stand-alone” therapy for any condition.
