Auriculotherapy at Shoreham Beach

 

Also called Auricular Acupuncture or Ear Acupuncture.

Auricular Acupuncture is quite simply acupuncture on the ear. There are approximately 200 acupuncture points on the outer ear which correspond to acupuncture points on the body, such as the heart, lungs, liver, nose, eyes, shoulders, knees etc. The ear points are on the outer ear, the fleshy cartilage, needles are never inserted within the inner ear.

Auricular Acupuncture can be effective in treating many complaints and conditions including mental and emotional problems such as anxiety, depression, and insomnia. The physical conditions treated include arthritis, back pain, migraine, headache, tendonitis and sciatica to name only a few. It is also used to treat digestive problems, for weight control, obesity, hayfever, asthma and menstrual problems.

Auricular Acupuncture is becoming increasingly popular in the treatment of addictions, especially drugs, alcohol and smoking. The treatment protocol for addictions consists of just 5 minute needles inserted into 5 specific points on each ear and left in for up to 40 minutes. The severity of the addiction will determine the amount of treatments required, usually a minimum of 6 treatments is required.
