Auriculotherapy has its roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Just as this ancient healing art defines acupuncture points on the body for treatment of various conditions, similar points are defined on the ear.
In the 1950's, Dr. Paul Nogier of Lyon, France expanded the original Chinese charts into a more comprehensive system. Whereas the ancient texts showed only a few points for specific conditions, Dr. Nogier's work demonstrated the ear is actually a micro-map of the entire body, with all body parts represented. Thus, all parts of the body can be evaluated and treated by means of the external ear.
Much of Dr. Nogier's original work has been verified in numerous research studies, and both Chinese and European systems are based on his work
Auriculotherapy can be used for pain control, addiction of all kinds including alcohol, drug, and nicotine, to name a few, internal disorders, emotional and mental problems, and much much more.....
