Auricular Acupuncture

This is also known as Ear Acupuncture. The outer ear has over 200 acupuncture points which help relieve many complaints and conditions.

The micro-system (the ear) reflects the macro-system of the entire body. This is achieved by inserting small acupuncture needles into a number of these points during a normal acupuncture treatment. As in traditional acupuncture, auricular acupuncture can address emotional issues as well as the physical.

Auricular acupuncture is often used to treat painful muscle conditions, arthritis and weight loss. However, this technique can also be used in the treatment for smoking cessation as well as drug and alcohol detoxification programmes. In fact any addictive behaviour can be addressed, especially if combined with a therapy to deal with the emotional component of substance abuse.

During treatment most patients feel relaxed and have a sense of well being. Sometimes the patient can experience heat sensations on the corresponding part of the body that is being treated. Often, the ‘ear seeds’ can be left on the ear after treatment, which will stimulate the acupuncture points. This is a way of allowing the treatment to continue between visits.
