Update Retreats 2017: 

We have a donor who will be supplying us with a 30-person moloka-style all-weather tent, we will have this set up to shield us from weather during our healing retreat! Game on, we also have Moe's BBQ out of Boulderhttp://www.moesoriginalbbq.com/lo/boulder/boulder-contact by a good friend and fellow Marine Ryan Richardson who has offered services to VET for full catering the entire weekend. We will also be hosting two additional workshops from fellow veterans, John Franks and the Heroes Pack,https://www.facebook.com/groups/601134066683041 who will be giving a workshop on PTSD therapy dogs for veterans and Marco Dominguez, fellow veteran and purple heart recipient OEF, will be giving a fly fishing workshop. We are happy to have Marcie Cooper MSN, RN, AHN-BC Certified Auricular Acupuncture Specialist and N.A.D.A. Practitioner,  Board Certified Advance Holistic Nurse and Holistic Practitioner

Marcie will be offering Auricular Acupuncture using the 5 needle protocol known as the  N.A.D.A. Treatment.  N.A.D.A. has been proven to be extremely effective in easing symptoms of stress and PTSD. The treatment is done in a group setting, with everyone in a circle while 5 tiny needles are placed on each ear, left in place for 30 minutes as everyone sits quietly allowing for their own  individual energy work to take place.  N.A.D.A is a holistic treatment that encompass mind, body, and spirit healing. 

After group treatment, Marcie will offer a  a brief workshop with handouts on Self-Applied Acupressure.

Acupressure is a gentle energy manipulating treatment that can be self-applied.  Knowing some of these powerful points and how they work can prove helpful during moments of stress.  There are no special tools, no needles, no need to walk away or even make time for a treatment,  just do it as you notice the need. These can be done quickly and inconspicuously to ground yourself.

The NADA protocol is currently being used in over 1500 clinical sites in the US, Australia, Europe, and the Caribbean for treatment of addiction, trauma, and stress reduction.
