Ear Acupuncture

More than 100 Acupoints can't be wrong!

Ear Acupuncture is a 'not as well known' modality of traditional acupuncture - but it is often very effective in treating a variety of painful conditions.

The ear has more than one hundred Acupoints which relate to the various organ systems and parts of the body, and is an effective method of treatment for many conditions.

Why The Ear Is Special

  1. What later becomes the external ear develops at about the same time. Accordingly, there is a very strong relationship between the external ear and the central nervous system.

  1. The ancient Chinese viewed the ear as resembling an upside down fetus with all the body parts proportionately arranged on the ear.
  2. Ear acupuncture may use needles, electrical stimulation, or a combination of both.
  3. In relation to the ear, electrical acupuncture is the most comfortable and least invasive method of acupuncture for those apprehensive about needles.
