Curbside Acupuncture is essentially a minimal contact, drive-up or drive-through service specifically for those experiencing high levels of stress, anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance, feelings of fear, grief, worry, and those seeking a better sense of well-being during this time of crisis.
Based on heavily researched NADA Protocol (also called 5 Needle Protocol or 5NP), five sterile acupuncture needles will be placed in participants’ ears and retained for 15-45 minutes, all from the comfort of their own vehicle. Deschutes Acupuncture is providing a Curbside Acupuncture Car Kit, which includes a travel-sized bottle of hand sanitizer as well as other items to enhance the experience. Participants will not leave their vehicle at any point and will only be in brief contact with Dr. Ford.
Benefits of NADA include increased calmness, better sleep, less agitation, relief from stress and emotional trauma, reduced cravings for alcohol and drugs including nicotine, minimized withdrawal symptoms, and a discovery of inner quiet and strength (acudetox.com).
Curbside Acupuncture will be offered again on May 21st, Thursday, 11am – 3pm. Follow the signs and look for the canopy in the parking lot at Deschutes Acupuncture located at 339 SW Century Drive. Additional dates and times to be determined. This is a free community service; however, donations will be accepted to offset the cost of the event.
