Auricular (ear acupuncture) therapy is related to both acupuncture and reflexology, working on the principle that each area of the ear corresponds to a different part of the body, and by treating the ears we can then affect that part of your body. We’ll run through a full consultation looking at physical and emotional aspects to find out what’s important to you. Then working with a map of the ear and a rounded pointer we’ll examine your ears for the corresponding points that may be tender or ‘active’.
We may use magnetic balls, small seeds or very fine acupuncture needles to stimulate the point. This therapy can be used in conjunction with body acupuncture, or we can use it as a treatment alone. As we see the ears as a representation of the entire body, it can be used to help with many different signs and symptoms.
