Auriculotherapy is a highly developed system of diagnosing and treating disharmonies anywhere in the body by expertly examining the ear, by which the practitioner can accurately determine symptoms as well as the root cause of disease and disharmony. There are over 300 documented points on the ear corresponding to different parts of the body. Specific points on the outer ear, or auricle, are stimulated with an electric pulse, a blunt probe, finger pressure, seed or magnet treatment to provide relief from a wide range of conditions. It is simple, safe, effective, painless and the skin is not punctured.
Auriculotherapy is an important component of Chinese acupuncture and moxibustion.
