Auricular Acupuncture - Therapy Information and support

Therapy Information and support

In Chinese medical theory there are over 120 points on each ear related to specific parts of the body. Modern practitioners now simulate ear acupoints using needles, laser treatment and electrical stimulants.

In auricular acupuncture the ear represents an inverted foetus with stimulation points affecting the corresponding parts of the body. The ear is thought to be crossed by all major meridians.

practitioners of auricular acupuncture study the ear in great detail. Diagnosis is made on this study and the "Four Examinations" of traditional Chinese medicine.

Treatment is designed to stimulate the acupoints on the ear. The pratitioner may use tiny acupuncture needles, a mild electrical current or a laser to stimulate the points.

Certain acupoints should however not be stimulated during pergnancy

What is Auricular Acupuncture and How Does it Work

Simply explained, Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture is a specialised complementary therapy where acupuncture points on the outer ear are treated, using either needles or electro acupunctoscopes to help relieve many chronic complaints, e.g Anxiety, Arthritis, Asthma, Back pain, Depression, Drug Addiction, Hay Fever, Insomnia, Migraine, Obesity, pMS, Sciatica, Sinusitis, Stopping Smoking, etc. There are over 200 acupuncture points on the outer ear, each point named generally after areas of the anatomy, e.g knees, hips, shoulders, liver heart etc. The outer ear acts similar to a switchboard to the brain, and when acupoints on the ear are stimulated, they trigger electrical impulses to the specific area of the body that is being treated.
