What is Acupuncture?
Auricular therapy or Ear Acupuncture is a specialised complementary natural healthcare therapy whereby acupuncture points on the external ear are used to diagnose and treat pain and a broad range of medical conditions of the body.
Auricular Therapy is being used all over the world to treat pain, addiction, internal disorders with excellent results.
Whether it is used as a stand alone technique or in combination with another treatment, auricular therapy is often very effective when other treatments have failed.
Best of all, it is safe, non-invasive and free of side effects.
How Auricular Therapy(or Ear Acupuncture) Works?
Diagnosis and treatment of hip problem
Specific zone or points on the ear have been mapped for treating specific problems. The treatment of these points has therapeutic effects on the target area of the body.
The rich network of nerve innervations allows energetic information from the organs to be conveyed through the nervous system between the corresponding part of the brain and specific targeted area of the body.
When we treat the ear acupuncture point we treat the brain which sends neurotransmitters or brain chemicals, such as endorphins to resolve the problems.
What should I expect?
An auricular session normally starts with the inspection of the ear related to your complaint on one or both ears. This may be conducted by visual inspection, palpation of the ears or electrical detection.
Sometimes the practitioner may discover other problems.
When active ear points are detected, they may be stimulated with any of the following techniques:
- Microcurrent stimulation
- Low Level Laser Therapy
- Pressure or massage
- Tapping of a semi permanent needle or ear seed
- Insertion of tiny needles

And hundreds more… ask your auricular therapist / acupuncturist treatment options specific to your conditions.
How do I feel, is it painful?
Auricular Therapy is usually very comfortable and relaxing. If your auricular therapist uses microcurrent stimulation, you may or may not feel the mild electrical sensation.
When a laser is used, one will not feel any sensation at all. Use of needle is an option; in that case, you may feel a slight needle prick.
How soon can I expect relief?
Auricular therapy very often produces very fast response. Some treatments produce instantaneous effect, while others are generally cumulative in nature, producing results with more treatments.
A course of treatment varies from 4-6 sessions.
