Auricular Acupuncture Treatment

Ear Acupuncture TucsonAURICULAR treatment.  While the earliest forms of ear acupuncture date back to ancient China, the more common forms of auricular acupuncture practiced today is largely based on the research of Dr. Paul Nogier. Dr. Nogier was an award-winning physician that was a conventionally trained neurologist whose research proved the intricate connection between the nerves found throughout the ear to the rest of the body. In fact, the ear very closely resembles the shape of the human fetus and very accurately maps to the corresponding areas within our bodies.

Dr. Nogier’s research found that the ear holds all of the acupuncture points of the body plus more detailed physiological and anatomical correspondences and found that stimulation of these points were very effective in alleviating pain and other symptoms. Later research by Canadian neuroscientist Wilder Penfield shows that the ear holds a microsystem of the body that maps the brain to the rest of your body.

Ear acupuncture takes advantage of the close knit microsystem that exists within the area of the ear to treat a wide variety of conditions, from headaches to allergies to addictions and pain disorders. It can be especially effective for treating addictive tendencies and cravings.

Auricular acupuncture is administered at the same time as a routine acupuncture office visit at no extra cost.
