What is Acudetox?

Acudetox alternative therapy, rooted in the art of ancient Chinese Medicine, developed over 3000 years ago. It involves the gentle placement of five small needles in specific sites of the ears, which promotes the internal healing of the body. It is safe and effective! Stimulating these points can help create a feeling of calmness and balance for the mind, body and spirit. This is followed by 30-45 minutes of sitting quietly listening to soft music.

Many individuals have reported relief of uncomfortable symptoms with just one treatment. There is evidence that treatments have a cumulative effect so it is useful to repeat the treatments over several days or weeks, but clients are free to attend as frequently as they choose.
