Auriculotherapy is a highly developed health care system of diagnosing and treating pain and other health problems anywhere in the body by expertly examining the external ear. The practitioner can accurately determine symptoms as well as the root cause of disease and disharmony. Specific points on the outer ear, or auricle, are stimulated with an electric pulse, a blunt probe, or seed treatment to provide relief from a wide range of conditions. It is simple, safe, and effective, and the skin is not punctured in most cases.
Auriculotherapy is now a specific field of medicine, widely practiced by physicians of all types throughout the world. It is effective for a wide range of health problems, including musculo-skeletal pain, respiratory and gastrointestinal issues, skin problems, eye-ear-nose-throat disorders, control of blood pressure, and many others.
Auriculotherapy is particularly effective for treating issues regarding behavioral health problems, such as appetite control, weight loss, and smoking withdrawal.
We use auriculotherapy selectively for patients, either alone or in conjunction with other therapies, in order to achieve the best results for the patients in the shortest amount of time. It is particularly attractive to those patients who choose to exclude acupuncture needles from their treatment sessions.
