Our ears can do more than just listen!
Auriculotherapy is a non-invasive subset of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine that has been used for thousands of years. As one of the healthiest regions of the world, East Asian Medicine has a lot to offer for those suffering from:
- Hormone imbalances
- Chronic pain
- Fatigue & low energy
What is Auriculotherapy?
Auriculotherapy is a branch of Chinese Medicine that is similar to Acupuncture. The Chinese believe that a special type of energy called “Qi” (pronounced ‘chee’) flows through our bodies. Mental and physical conditions ranging from stress, to allergies, to infertility can block the flow of Qi and produce predictable patterns of symptoms at different locations of our bodies — especially the ears. These locations are referred to as ‘meridians’ or ‘acupuncture points.’
What is the Benefit of Auriculotherapy?
Like acupuncture, research has shown that auriculotherapy can provide relief from anxiety, stress, gastrointestinal discomfort, and more! The best part is that the Chinese methods of assessment can identify the key imbalances underlying many conditions and help restore the body before the problem develops, or symptoms get worse.
Does Auriculotherapy Use Needles?
Instead of acupuncture needles, a small magnetic bead called an “ear seed” is applied to the ear at unique points underneath a small bandage. When the bead is pressed down against the skin, the combination of pressure and electromagnetic induction (restoring the Qi) brings the body back into balance. The beads can stay in place for up to a week at a time, balancing your body even outside the office!
