Auricular Acupuncture

Auricular Acupuncture also known as Ear Acupuncture is an ancient treatment with many modern applications with extensive research supporting its effect. It is a deeply relaxing and safe treatment that is often applied in a group setting to specific points on the ear while fully dressed. It tends to be painless and highly effective for stress, anxiety, and feelings of well- being. The body’s own endorphins which are natural opiates can be stimulated. It helps restore physical and emotional homeostasis and is frequently used to treat both physical and psycho-spiritual issues, in addiction treatment, and added for cases with pain. The ear contains reflexes for the entire body and is considered a micro-system itself which can also benefit everyone. While not a substitute for individual full body acupuncture treatments, it is profoundly helpful and an efficient way to treat especially in group and emergency situations.
