Free Trauma and Stress Relief Ear (Auricular) Acupuncture for the BIPOC+ and AAPI Communities at Modern Acupuncture

April 25, 2021 | 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

At Modern Acupuncture Lincoln Park we provide 30 minute acupuncture treatments in a relaxing, community style space. Our mission is to make your life better by offering acupuncture treatments in an accessible and affordable environment. We are creating a safe space for individuals in the Black, Brown and/or AAPI community to receive FREE auricular (ear) treatments during our first community clinic in April. Our protocol is based on the NADA (National Acupuncture Detoxification Association) protocol using 5 points in the ear. This simple, yet effective protocol is used to treat people who have experienced and continue to experience physical, psychological and emotional trauma and stress. It increases calmness, provides relief from stress and trauma, and allows for the discovery of inner quiet and strength (source: It calms the nervous system out of the fight or flight mode due to high-stress and traumatic environments and moves the body into the rest and digest state. During these treatments you will remains clothed and sit in our treatment chairs for approx. 30 minutes to experience the benefits of this protocol.

In the 1970s, members from the Black Panthers, the Young Lords and other activist groups started the Lincoln Detox program in the South Bronx. The Lincoln Detox program developed and implemented the mass use of acupuncture, and the NADA protocol, as a treatment for rehabilitation from drug and alcohol abuse. It was the first time a private institution in the USA implemented the mass use of acupuncture for treatment.

For our first community clinic we ask that you submit a registration form and one of us will reach out to confirm your appointment time within 24 hours of submitting. Appointments will last approximately 30 minutes. All treatments will require an appointment so that we can give the best level of care. Patients will also be asked to fill out an intake form upon arrival. Thank you! Treatments are given at no cost to the recipient.
