Ear Acupuncture Benefits

Did you know your ears contain over a hundred points that can be stimulated for a wide range of health problems?

Ear acupuncture (or auriculotherapy) is a complete healing system in itself. It originated in China and was further developed by a French doctor. It is especially effective for pain and addictions, but can treat many other conditions too.

There are a number of ways to treat the ears, not just with acupuncture needles. Laser and battery-powered acupoint stimulaters are 2 common, non-invasive and painless methods.

I do auriculotherapy on my kids with a laser pen to help them sleep, to stop coughs and other things. I am an acupuncturist though and you will need to see one if you want to find out if auriculotherapy can help you.

One way to stimulate ear points yourself and without the need to see an acupuncturist is simply to rub your ears with your hands. Ear rubbing has an overall relaxing effect on you - it won't be enough to stop specific problems.

Any questions about ear acupuncture, ear rubbing, or finding an acupuncturist let me know.

All the best,
