What is the NADA Protocol?

The NADA protocol of acupuncture involves the gentle placement of five small sterilised, very thin, disposable needles into specific sites on each ear; no electrical stimulation is used. The recipients sit quietly for between 40–45 minutes.

This therapy can help reduce the frequency and intensity of hot flashes, aid relaxation, and reduce anxiety, tension and insomnia.

The NADA protocol has been widely used to help with addiction recovery too due to its calming effect which reduces withdrawal symptoms.

During my Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture degree studies at the Northern College of Acupuncture (NCA) York, we visited the James Cook hospital in Middlesbrough where they have a dedicated building, the Trinity Holistic Centre, where the NADA protocol is used to help cancer patients reduce the side effects of the chemotherapy treatment and there is plenty of research and clinical practice that proves that auricular acupuncture is effective for hot flashes, for both menopausal women and cancer patients.

It was very inspiring to see that the NHS is calling upon alternative treatment modalities to help cancer patients with success. 

Your health insurance may cover these. Worth checking with them!
