WHAT IS AURICULAR ACUPUNCTURE?
Known as German Auricular Acupuncture, it is a complete modality of diagnosis and treatment. Unlike body acupuncture, auricular acupuncture is treating the central nervous system rather than meridians. The ear represents a map of the whole body, including the musculoskeletal system, the organs, and the brain. The practitioner inspects the ear for changes in shape, colour, tenderness, and electrical conductance that signify pain, illness or any other pathological change. The points are then treated with a needle, ear seed, laser or electrical stimulation.
WHAT CAN EAR ACUPUNCTURE TREAT?
The list of applications for auricular treatments is quite
extensive so here are just very few of the conditions that
can be treated: Allergies, Anxiety, Arthritis, Chronic
pain, Constipation, Infertility, Depression, Fibromyalgia,
Headache, Insomnia, Irritable bowel syndrome, Low
back pain, Migraine, Thyroid issues, Smoking cessation,
Chronic pain, Stress, Weight issues, Vertigo.
Auricular Acupuncture was developed by Dr. Paul Nogier, French neurologist, in the 1950s and then further researched and developed into a complete medical theory by Dr. Frank Bahr et.al. in Germany. They discovered that the Ear tells the story of what is happening in the whole human system at any point in time! As a microsystem projection of the brain, the ear provides a precise map that is visible, accessible and diagnostic! Even conditions related to internal scars, or the central nervous system, conditions that would otherwise demand invasive procedures, are available here for assessment and treatment.
WHAT IS GERMAN AURICULAR ACUPUNCTURE?
German auricular acupuncture is a system of auricular acupuncture developed in the
1950's by French physician Dr. Paul Nogier and focuses on the active points,
disturbances, of one's ears. The ears are the most effective and direct ways of
treating the brain and is a map of the human body's system. The ear is able to tell us
the body's conditions and gives access to the nervous system.
German acupuncture is able to stimulate the central nervous system directly through the active points of the ear which sends messages to correct pain pathways and can help balance emotional centres of the brain.
