Auriculotherapy equals a winning strategy. Small seeds or magnets can be left in so you get stimulation of acupuncture points for up to a week after leaving the office.
Treat any part of the body: From head to toe, front to back, internal or superficial, there's not a part of the body that can't be addressed with auriculotherapy.
Help with tough cases: No matter what the symptoms or diagnosis, there's a good chance auriculotherapy will help.
Treat addictions and behaviors: Auriculotherapy is probably best known for its high success rate with addictions, from smoking to alcohol or drugs. But it can also treat behavioral addictions and emotional difficulties with ready success.
But isn't auriculotherapy the same thing as acupuncture?
While it's true that auriculotherapy originated in ancient China and is founded on many of the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, modern auriculotherapy is actually based on the work of French neurologist Dr. Paul Nogier.
Treating the auricle does NOT need to involve needle insertion.
