Ear Acupuncture - (Auricular Acupuncture)

Auricular Acupuncture

 

Auricular Acupuncture has a history dating back more than 3,000 years, as far as records show it seems to have originated in China. The first medical textbook was the Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine which was published around 400-200 BC. This work showed that the ear was connected to all organs of the body and corresponding meridians of classical acupuncture.

 

  

In the 1950’s, Dr Paul Nogier a French physician began to research and develop modern ear acupuncture after seeing one of his patients cured of sciatic back pain with the use of ear acupuncture. His research indicated that every part of the body has its own representative acupuncture point on the external ear and that stimulating these points can influence the corresponding anatomical area linked to that ear point. 

 

  

In the late 1950’s the Nanking Army Ear Acupuncture Research Team discovered Nogier’s work and treated over 2,000 patients using Nogier’s research and recorded the clinical efficacy of ear acupuncture.

 

How Does Auricular Acupuncture Work?

 

If you imagine that the ears are switchboards that are connected to the brain, when Auricular Acupuncture points are treated, signals are sent via the brain to targeted anatomical areas via neural pathways and this sophisticated mechanism facilitates our natural healing process.

 

The ears can reflect what is happening in the body, so if you were suffering with back pain, it will indicate on the corresponding ear acupuncture point by being tender to touch. The practitioner will palpate (press) several different points on the ears with a probe to detect the most tender or sensitive one. This point will then be treated which should correspond with an improvement in the affected area.

Auricular Acupuncture has been found to stimulate higher levels of endorphins which help alleviate both mental and physical pain. However Auricular Acupuncture is a very comprehensive treatment, it offers much more than pain relief. It can be administered easily, quickly and economically and it is very effective for most chronic complaints.
