Healing With Auriculotherapy

  1. 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, Auriculotherapy is often effective when other treatments have failed. Best of all, It is safe, non- invasive and virtually free of side effects.

  1. 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.

  1. What should I expect?

We 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, or pressure.

  1. 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 and 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.

  1. Is it painful?

Auriculotherapy is generally very comfortable. With electrical stimulation, you may feel a mild electrical sensation. Other forms of treatment, like laser, may not produce any sensation at all.

  1. How quickly can I expect relief?

Auriculotherapy often produces very rapid effect immediately, while others are cumulative in nature, become increasingly effective with more treatments.

  1. Why does my practitioner use Auriculotherapy?

Used by itself or in conjunction with other forms of treatment, auriculotherapy is a very safe and often effective form of treatment. Side effects are extremely low because, as a natural form of treatment, auriculotherapy does not involve drugs or surgery. Your condition is evidence of a commitment to provide the best possible treatment in the form of a safe, natural therapy.
