"Auricular means "ear". When you"re stressed out or emotionally upset, do your symptoms get worse?
Whether we are aware of it or not, most ailments have an emotional or stress component that can be treated with ear acupuncture for a more complete healing.
Auricular Therapy (also called Auricular Medicine) is the original ear acupuncture technique created in the 1950"s by Dr. Paul Nogier, MD, a French neurologist and acupuncturist. He mapped acupuncture points on the ear as a microsystem of the entire body in multiple layers. His method requires the use of the patient"s wrist pulse to localize and monitor treatment.
Dr. Nogier"s research found that Auricular Therapy treats the body"s tissues and organs directly. Prior to his work, the ancient Chinese system of acupuncture did not include the ear. Since publication of Dr. Nogier"s research, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has adapted and developed his concepts into their own ear acupuncture protocols."
