In Auricular Medicine, the body, both internal and external is represented as reflex zones on the outer ear or the Auricula. Needles are then placed in the appropriate corresponding points to provide an efficient and effective treatment for acute and chronic disorders. It can also address psychological aspects. Treatment involves needling the respective points on the ear. All signals induced by ear acupuncture travel through a specific part of the brain, the diencephalon, to the corresponding body parts. Treating the ear is a very efficient treatment protocol for addressing dysfunction in the body.
Auricular medicine can be used as a diagnostic tool for identifying precisely where in the body the pain is located or which organs or parts of the body are affected by the pain.
