NADA – Ear Acupuncture for Addiction and Mental Illness EN

“NADA – Ear Acupuncture for Addiction and Mental Illness” (Kajsa Landgren, 2023, 212 pages, self-published, translation by Siiri Hedlund) is a book for anyone interested in acupuncture and non-pharmacological treatment of anxiety, sleep difficulties and withdrawal. NADA is a simple form of standardized ear acupuncture used in more than 70 countries in conjunction with standard psychiatric care and addiction treatment, in treatment centers and prisons, and as crisis intervention after natural disasters and acts of terrorism. Kajsa Landgren has been using and teaching NADA since 1995, mentoring NADA acupuncturists and researching NADA from various perspectives.

From the foreword by Dr Kenneth “Khensu” Carter, US NADA President: “Kajsa´s writing is an easy read that is warm, engaging. This NADA book is full of heart both her own and the heart of NADA–’s mission, aspiration, and purpose. It does much to capture the spirit of NADA in its many aspects across the patient and practice spectrum. I will be recommending this book to novice NADA practitioners and to experienced NADA trainers. There is something here for everyone.”

From the foreword by PhD Beverley de Valois, researcher and acupuncturist: “it is much needed and will be a huge asset to the extensive global NADA network. … Her explanation of what the NADA protocol is, and how to administer it, is clear, comprehensive, and hugely informative. … she has conveyed the fascination and spirit of NADA in a work that also communicates its practical, clinical, and scientific facets. It is immensely readable, and once I started, I could not stop.”
