"Unimagined Bridges" is a DVD that connects tragedy and hope between people in all parts of the globe. Producer Laura Cooley is an acupuncturist from Texas who provided treatment and support for firemen and other rescue workers in New Orleans after hurricane Katrina. Large scale usage of ear acupuncture for trauma related crises began with efforts of Joan Dolan, a staff nurse treating alcoholics at St. Vincent's Hospital in lower Manhattan. On September 11, 2001 she began using the same 3-5 point ear acupuncture protocol for care-givers and survivors of the terrorist attack. The team of volunteers treated more than one thousand people in the next 10 days with very favorable results.
This ear acupuncture protocol is known as the NADA protocol after the U.S. organization, National Acupuncture Detoxification Association, which began at Lincoln Hospital (Bronx, NY) in 1974, There are now independent NADA organizations in 20 different countries.
