NADA Ear Acupuncture and Reiki Circle

Community-held healing is a strong and unique experience, one where we have the pleasure of being present during the care and exchange of energy for everyone in the room. Care will be offered in a safer, trauma-informed, consent-based space. NADA-trained ear acupuncture practitioners will place needles along the ear while Reiki practitioners follow with gentle placement of hands on the head and shoulders. This session allows 30+ people to be treated at once in a seated position in a circle.
