Auriculotherapy: the ultimate for pain management and much more
Auriculotherapy is needleless stimulation of the external ear for alleviating pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body. Auriculotherapy uses electricity to diagnose and treat auricular acupoints (acupuncture points on the ear).
How Auriculotherapy Works
Auriculotherapy works by stimulating the central nervous system through the cranial nerves and spinal nerves on the auricle (external ear). This stimulation results in neurotransmitters being stimulated within the brain and spinal cord of the central nervous system. This stimulation of neurotransmitters modulates the pain and nerve function correcting dysfunctional signals sent to the affected organ or body part.
Since we are changing brain patterns, it is important to keep reinforcing the new pattern until it is the primary one and the old pattern is neutralized. Because of this, it is beneficial to have a treatment 2-3 times per week for a few weeks to maximize the treatment response.
Auriculotherapy can be effective for many conditions. Some of these include: Back Pain, Headaches, Bursitis, Shoulder Pain, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis Elbow, TMJ, Dizziness, Hypertension, Asthma, Insomnia, ADD/ ADHD, Shingles, Macular Degeneration, Burns, Psoriasis, Addictions for Nicotine, Drugs and Appetite Control, Weight Loss, Detoxification, Hormonal Support, Adrenal Fatigue, Thyroid Issues, Blood Sugar Support, Depression, Anxiety and more.
