As part of Greenhouse’s Holistic Healing CEU Series, the facility is hosting a seminar about how acupuncture can foster better mental health. The seminar will be led by Maria Ester Ontiveros-Flores, M.A., LCDC. It will run at Greenhouse from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Friday, February 14th, 2020.
Acupuncture and Mental Health
The host of the seminar, Maria Ester Ontiveros-Flores, has over 25 years of experienced as a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor. In 1993, she began incorporating auricular acupuncture into her substance abuse practice. In particular, Ontiveros-Flores found that acupuncture can help individual detox from substances in a less painful manner. Now, she’s coming to Greenhouse to share her methods with the staff.
In particular, Ontiveros-Flores will be discussing the NADA Protocol, an approach to holistic treatment. The NADA Protocol advocates that any individual aspect of treatment cannot act as a “cure” for a condition. Instead, a holistic approach that acknowledges the many different mental, physical and emotion at play is required to achieve true healing.
NADA Protocol Process
- Identify feeling and symptoms of anxiety and depression.
- Identify the craving process.
- Foster increased calmness, better sleep, and reduced agitation.
- Obtain relief from stress and emotional trauma.
