Ear Acupuncture

Ear Acupuncture (Auriculotherapy)

Ear acupuncture (auriculotherapy) is a healing technique which uses the external ear's nervous system connection with the rest of the body to protect or restore health. Stimulation of the external ear (auricle) for healing purposes has been used for centuries.

The French physician and acupuncturist Dr. Nojier reinvented this method. Accepting the idea of od homunculus (the miniature representation of the whole body in the auricle), Dr. Nojier proved that this body part is not only a piece of cartilage, but it has connection with the body organs and systems and that they are embrionically connected. When one of the internal organs has a disorder, this triggers a corresponding reflex in the auricle. This reflex point can be detected by palpitation and the change of the electrical conductance. The same reflex point can be stimulated by different tools: manual pressure; pellets; magnets; laser; and auricular acupuncture needles.

This reflex mechanism is beneficial for many health conditions, including:

  • chronic fatigue syndrome
  • fibromyalgia
  • nicotine, alcohol, narcotics withdrawal
  • sport injuries
  • back/neck pains, joint pains
  • allergies
  • asthma
  • depression, anxiety
  • insomnia
  • PMS, menopause
  • digestive system disorders
  • concentration difficulties
  • vision, hearing and coordination problems
  • stress management

Auriculotherapy is very popular with fast reaching results.
