Auricular acupuncture is a technique which uses small needles, ear tacks or ear seeds on specific areas of the ear. It focuses on normalizing a body’s dysfunction through the stimulation of specific points on the ear.
Modern research has confirmed the wide range of benefits resulting from auricular acupuncture, which includes reduced anxiety and addiction treatment. According to reflexology, the ear contains 200 points which correspond with organs in the body. The stimulation of these points on the ear strengthens the related organs, providing nourishment, a calming effect and a sense of harmony.
Auricular acupuncture boosts the level of endorphins, a natural chemical found in the brain, creating a ‘feel-good’ sensation enabling patients to stabilize their emotions.
