Dear Acudetox Specialists and Friends,

Warm Greetings of Peace and Solidarity from NADA Philippines!

The National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) Philippines is a non-profit volunteer organization that supports the use of a five-point ear acupuncture protocol known internationally as the NADA Protocol.

Every year since 2010, NADA Philippines has held a regular forum where Acudetox Specialists (ADSes) join hands and share their different experiences from all over the Philippines.

For this year’s activity, NADA Philippines is inviting NADA Acudetox Specialists from other countries to join us and be part of this yearly celebration of sharing and networking.

NADA Philippines will be holding its 5th National Annual Forum on February 27, 2016 (Saturday), at the Quezon City Sports Club, E. Rodriguez Avenue, Quezon City with the theme “Strengthening the NADA Spirit through Solidarity with Local and International Partners.”

We are inviting you to be part of this forum that will feature the diverse experiences and updates from the ADSes here and abroad in their continued work in providing ear acupuncture to various communities and sectors.

Registration fees (inclusive of kit, lunch, two snacks and photo booth):

-For Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist (ADS) – Php500.00
-For Non-ADS – Php750.00

Kindly confirm your attendance to ensure food reservation by sending a text message to Ms. Evelyn Dulay through mobile 0917-7305964 and email evelyndulay06@gmail.com / nadaphilippines@gmail.com.
