Health care procedure in which stimulation of the auricle of the external ear is utilized to alleviate health conditions in other parts of the body.
While originally based upon the ancient Chinese practices of acupuncture, the somatotopic correspondence of specific parts of the body to specific parts of the ear was first developed in France by Paul Nogier.
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 has no known side effects.
Auriculotherapy treat pain and addictions (cigarette, food, alcohol, drugs...) with excellent results.
- Ear seeds:
Small black seeds/magnets, secured on the ear with a piece of adhesive tape over specific acupressure points.The continuous mild pressure they exert is amplified by stimulating the seed with a few seconds of fingertip massage every few hours.Ear seeds are non-invasive, meaning, unlike needles or tacks, they are affixed on the surface of the ear.
