Hi Frank,
thank you for this great, detailed article!
As an Acupuncturist, 23 years licensed in California, here is my comment:
A group protocol, with ear acupuncture (NADA), used in recovery treatments are very effective in relaxation "from the inside" on a regular basis. Combined with Neuro- transmitter
Therapy with amino acids ( J.Ross, Ph.D.) this really makes a difference. Are you still continuing with this work and maybe interested in this paradigm? www.ahutif.com.
