Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture is offered at Richmond Creative Counseling, LLC by NADA-trained professionals who work in collaboration with a Physician who is also licensed in medical acupuncture. Auricular Acupuncture involves placing thin, sterilized needles onto five standardized points on the ear. It has been found to be effective in helping people balance their energy, relax, decrease anxiety, reduce withdrawal symptoms, and manage cravings.
While several of our therapists provide Auricular Acupuncture as part of their individual treatment (when appropriate), we also offer two weekly "drop-in sessions." These sessions are 1-hour time blocks in which individuals may walk-in and receive an Auricular Acupuncture treatment while sitting in a calm, relaxing room with meditative music for approximately 30 minutes. The cost of each drop-in session is $10.
Drop-In Sessions are available on:
Mondays 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. (last administration will be performed at 12:30)
Tuesdays 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (last administration will be performed at 12:00 p.m.)
New participants should arrive at the beginning of the session for their first time in order to complete paperwork that provides us with your medical history and your consent to receive the treatment.
No appointment is necessary, though you may wish to contact our office the morning of the session to ensure that we have not canceled it for the day.
