acudetox (ear acupuncture) in Breckenridge

destress and build resilience with acudetox

Acudetox is an ear acupuncture technique that has been shown to have powerful destressing effects. It works by stimulating five key points in the ear that are believed to help regulate the nervous system and promote relaxation. In addition to its destressing effects, acudetox can also help build resilience to future stressors.

Some of the most common benefits reported by our acudetox clients are improved sleep and reduced stress levels. Other potential benefits may include reduced anxiety, enhanced mood, increased energy levels, and improved overall sense of wellbeing. Some clients experience increased relaxation, better digestion, and improved focus and clarity.

Acudetox is a safe and non-invasive technique that can complement other therapies and treatments. It is our most versatile treatment and can be added on to just about any other session.

how it works

The Five Points of Acudetox

Acudetox involves the insertion of small, sterile needles into five specific points on the ear: the sympathetic point, shen men, kidney point, liver point, and lung point. Each of these points is believed to have a specific impact on the body according to Chinese medicine:

  • Sympathetic point: helps to regulate the fight or flight response and promotes relaxation.
  • Shen men: can improve sleep, reduce anxiety, and promote a sense of well-being.
  • Kidney point: helps to reduce fear and promote relaxation; aids in detoxification.
  • Liver point: can reduce anger, frustration, and irritability; supports overall wellness.
  • Lung point: can help with grief, sadness, and depression; helps to regulate breathing.

A Gentle, Subtle Treatment

One of the benefits of acudetox is that it is a gentle, subtle treatment that can have powerful effects over time. While some clients may feel a pinprick sensation when the needles are inserted, any significant discomfort should dissipate within a minute or so. As it is a subtle science, its effects add up exponentially with multiple treatments. Clients can receive this treatment up to twice a day to help support ongoing stress management.

      community health roots

      Acudetox has its roots in community health, and was first developed in the 1970s as a way to support people dealing with addiction and other mental health challenges. Tupac’s stepfather Dr. Mutulu Shakur was one of the initial founders.

      Today, it is widely used to support stress relief, addiction management and overall wellness.
