Auricular Acupuncture

The ear has traditionally been regarded of great importance in Traditional Chinese Medicine since it is thought to be crossed by all the major meridians of the body. According to Chinese medical theory there are 120 acupoints on each ear relating to different parts of the body. The practitioner studies the ear in great detail, testing for sensitivity and observing the colour and condition of the skin. Then he/she might apply gentle pressure to the appropriate acupoints with the hands or using tiny needles, a very mild electrical current, a laser or infrared light. During treatment, a tingling or dull sensation might be felt at that point on the ear, and may also be felt in the corresponding part of the body.

Auricular Acupuncture is especially useful in treating the following health conditions:
acne, acute pain, addictions, anaesthesia, arthritis, eczema, headaches, indigestion, kidney disorders, nausea, migraines, respiratory conditions, sinusitis, sports injuries.

You are recommended to seek advice of a qualified health practitioner. To find a qualified practitioner in your area look in the Practitioner Directory.
