NADA stands for the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association. We use this acronym to refer to the 5-point ear acupuncture protocol used for treating various addictions, post-traumatic stress disorder, and chronic stress. Sage uses NADA as a community building and community care tool by taking NADA to organizations and workplaces for group sessions. We also offer pay-what-you-can NADA ear acupuncture drop in hours on Fridays from 5-7 p.m.

Acupuncture and bodywork are transformative processes for the body, mind, and being. Sometimes after an acupuncture or bodywork session you may feel worse or your symptom may flare up just before you feel your symptoms improve. This is sometimes referred to as a “healing crisis”. At Sage we consider it a normal healing response. In a nutshell, it is the body’s way of working through stagnation. While physical and emotional discomfort after acupuncture or bodywork is not the norm, you may experience discomfort depending on what your health goals are. Therefore, we advise that you drink plenty of water and observe any changes that happen in your body, mind, and emotions after you receive acupuncture or bodywork. Let your practitioner know what you are experiencing at every step of the way so that she may best support your healing process, no matter what it looks like.
