Auricular therapy is a modern highly-developed diagnostic and treatment procedure. By stimulating points on the external ear it optimizes the body’s self-healing mechanisms and its function to alleviate pathological conditions. Auricular therapy may be used as a primary mode of treatment or in conjunction with other treatments. In order to identify obstacles to each person’s health and recuperation, auricular therapy provides an accurate method of testing to detect any imbalances present.
The World Health Organization lists 150 conditions for which it recommends auricular therapy as an appropriate and viable treatment procedure. Auricular therapy is exceptionally effective in the successful treatments of acute and chronic pain, addiction, anxiety, depression, insomnia, hormonal imbalances, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Methods are clinically proven to aid in rapid pain relief and significant traumatic stress reduction in emergency situations, such as advanced treatment techniques formulated by military acupuncturists that are applied to soldiers wounded or traumatized on the battlefield. Specialized auricular therapy programs also provide safe solutions for addiction, substance abuse, and weight loss.
