What is ear acupuncture?IMG_0848 copy

Ear acupuncture, also known as auricular therapy, is a scientific medical system based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This medical system is an approach that can diagnose and treat the whole body solely through the ears. Diagnosis and treatment of the whole body does not only indicate the physical body, but the functional aspects, mental and emotional affects, energetic flow, and spiritual embodiment. Just like the feet and hands, the ears are reflective of the whole body and emulate an upside down fetus.

Auricular therapy is based upon points, areas, zones, lines, groves and channels. With over 100 acupuncture points in the ear, diagnosis and treatment are through point detection. Through this detection, the points on the ear are able to regulate the body’s internal organs, structures, and functions.

A wide variety of conditions are treated with auricular therapy, including addictions, mood disorders, obesity, pain, gynecological issues, sleep disorders, digestive problems, and other conditions.

What are ear seeds?
Typically auricular therapy involves inserting very small acupuncture needles into the points on the ear. The acupuncture points may also be stimulated for a longer period of time by using ear seeds. Ear seeds are actually seeds from the Vaccaria plant. These seeds are attached to and held in place over the auricular acupuncture point with a small piece of adhesive tape.

This allows for the extension of treatment to continue after the patient has left the treatment room. Ear seeds are completely safe and typically fall off on their own.
