How does Acudetox work?

When you suffer a traumatic event, toxins are released in your body. These toxins can lead to illness. For hundreds of years acupuncture has been used as an alternative to traditional medicine to treat several illnesses caused by toxicity. Acupuncture is based on the principal that there are pressure points on your body for different types of treatment. Acudetox takes this principle and uses points on your ear surface to insert needles.

The points where these needles are inserted correspond with major organ systems in your body as well as the emotions associated with them. 

. Acudetox focuses on 5 specific points as per below:

  • Shenmen (Spirit gate) – This point corresponds to the heart centre and is used for calming and relaxation.
  • Sympathetic nervous system – This point is for relieving tension.
  • Liver – This point is for detoxification, relaxation and anger management.
  • Kidney – This point is for the release of toxins, fear and strengthening willpower.
  • Lung – This point is used to assist in better respiration, detoxification and the release of sadness and grief.
