Over 80%  of those with chronic pain also suffer from depression and other mood disorders.  Acupuncture is widely known for its effectiveness in the treatment of pain. Its unique role in reducing suffering in patients experiencing pain is one of the main reasons it has become so popular around the world.


The best available evidence demonstrates that acupuncture has moderate benefits in the treatment of anxiety. Studies show that acupuncture is more effective than pharmacotherapy and comparable to talking therapy, making it a helpful referral choice. Moreover, research has revealed several known biochemical and biophysical mechanisms that may offer an explanation of how this ancient modality works.


A scientific study found that electroacupuncture was just as effective as fluoxetine (Prozac) in reducing symptoms of depression.  The acupuncture began to work faster, reducing symptoms more dramatically at weeks two and four than the drug did. Among the patients who got better, a higher percentage of the acupuncture recipients showed “great improvement.”


The NADA Protocol used at ModernAcu is a non-verbal approach to healing.  NADA involves the gentle placement of up to five small, sterilized disposable needles into specific sites on each ear.

NADA ear acupuncture is an adjunct therapy which is clinically effective, cost-efficient, drug-free and compatible cross-cultural for supporting those suffering from cravings (food, nicotine, alcohol, drugs), withdrawal symptoms or stress and emotional trauma.



As a service to the community ModernAcu offers $10 treatments every Monday night. 

We use the National Acupuncture Detox Association (NADA) protocol that has been used in drug rehabilitation centres for many years to help people gain control over their addictions.   It is profoundly healing for the emotions and relieves stress.   Try it and see for yourself....

This service is located at Station Square on Main Street every MONDAY starting at 4:30pm with last appt at 6pm.

The cost is $10 for a full 45-minute seated auricular acupuncture session.  No need to book, please just come upstairs and let's start healing together.
