Healing with Auriculotherapy!
What is Auriculotherapy?
Auriculotherapy is a technique of using points on the skin of the auricle (external ear) to diagnose and treat pain and medical conditions of the body. Also referred to as Auricular Medicine, practitioners all over the world use this therapy to treat pain, addictions, and internal disorders with excellent results. Whether used in conjunction with another treatment or by itself, Auriculothereapy is often effective when other treatments have failed. Best of all, it is safe, non-invasive and virtually free of side effects.
How does Auriculotherapy work
Specific points on the ear have been mapped for the treatment of specific problems. These points, when stimulated, often have positive effects on the target area of the body. The exact mechanism by which points on the ear affect other parts of the body is the subject of ongoing research, and several theories are currently under investigation.
What should I expect?
Your practitioner will usually begin by inspecting certain points that may be related to your problem on one or both of your ears. The ears may be checked by visual inspection, palpation, or electrical testing. When therapeutically active points are located, they will be treated with one of several possible treatment methods, including electrical or laser stimulation, pressure, taping of a tack or seed to the skin, or insertion of very small thin needles. I however, do Not use needles! I use either the electric stim, Stim- Plus or 635nM Laser or both depending on the points needed to be stimulated.
What can Auriculotherapy treat?
Auriculotherapy is most commonly used for pain control, addictions and cravings, weight loss, and help with mental or emotional problems. Points & protocols exist for the treatment of many internal disorders as well. Because Auriculotherapy can address any part of the body, nearly any problem can be treated by Auriculotherapy as a primary or complimentary form of care.
