Auriculotherapy is the stimulation of the auricle of the external ear for the diagnosis and treatment of health conditions in other parts of the body. It is also known as ear acupuncture or auricular acupuncture when the stimulation is achieved by the insertion of acupuncture needles, whereas the term auriculotherapy often refers to electrical stimulation of the surface of ear reflex points. Specific points on the ear can also be stimulated by manual pressure, referred to as auricular acupressure or ear reflexology. Acupuncture points on the ear can also be stimulated with lasers, magnets, and ear pellets. ~Auriculotherapy.com
While originally based upon the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture, the correlation of specific body parts to specific parts of the ear was developed in modern France. Auriculotherapy facilitates the natural, self-regulating homeostatic mechanisms of the body by diminishing overactive bodily functions or by increasing under active physiological processes. This process creates a healing not just pain relief. The client sits in a chair or lyes down on massage table, fully clothed, just the external part of the ear is going to receive treatment.
Auriculotherapy is used to treat a variety of clinical disorders including but not limited to:
Chronic back pain
Neck & Shoulder pain
Dental pain & TMJ
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Stress and Strain
I have been certified by the Auriculotherapy Certification Institute since 2003 and have been discovering the amazing healing that can come from a simple ear treatment!
I use a microcurrent electrical stimulation unit or a Low Level Light Laser on the acupoints and finish with the placement of magnetic microbeads for acupressure to complete an auriculotherapy treatment.
A series of 5 treatments, (2 per week for the first 2 weeks ,then weekly) for specific health conditions is recommended. Many people get great results with just one or two treatments. The more chronic the condition, the more treatments are need to facilitate healing.
I use established protocol points for treatment of addictions (narcotics, smoking, alcohol, sugar, food) using electrical stimulation and magnetic microbeads for home acupressure. These points have been used since 1985 in rehab facilities and are used world wide. No needles used.
I use Battlefield Acupuncture protocol points for chronic and acute pain using either e-stim or low level light laser and then placing magnetic microbeads or seeds over the points treated to further facilitate healing at home. No needles used. These points were established to help soldiers in the field when they could not get medicine for pain. Great on the battlefield of life as well!
