Auriculotherapy (Ear Acupuncture)

Auriculotherapy is the stimulation of acupuncture and reflex points located on the ear, using needles, micro-massage or patches (seeds, magnets).

Auriculotherapy is both a method of diagnosis and a treatment system: the same reflex points will be reactive or painful when there is a pathology related to those points’ associated organs or body system. By stimulating the points, they send information to the nerve centers of the brain through reflex pathways, activating the body’s natural mechanisms to address the problem and self-healing.

Although it has its origins in Traditional Chinese Medicine, it was the French Nogier who said the ear pavilion resembles the shape of an inverted human fetus in the womb. Following this correspondence, more than 150 points are described in the ear, which can be used in a wide range of disorders or diseases.It is this integrated system of Chinese and Western practices of auriculotherapy that makes it so useful in my treatments.

In what cases may auriculotherapy be helpful?
