Auricular Acupuncture – How It Works

without comments

The entire body, quite amazingly, can be treated by means of pressure application to certain acupuncture points in the ear.

The concept of the inverted fetus is the basis for this strange idea, an idea made known by a French doctor named Paul Nogier who developed an acupuncture map of the ear. Auricular acupuncture or ear acupuncture made its debut due to the development of Dr. Nogier’s studies and thoughts.

Acupuncture points in the ear have been quite simply shown to help lessen pain throughout the body by a web-like preparation via the parasympathetic nervous system.

Long used as a treatment for various diseases and conditions, Chinese acupuncture is an ideal treatment for obesity, pain control, depression, and a slew of chronic conditions.

Auricular acupuncture takes advantage of the traditional approach to Chinese acupuncture. The principles and ideas behind the utilization of ear acupuncture points goes far back in time, and those ideas are still being used in modern acupuncture with extreme effectiveness.

Endorphins are released into the bloodstream where they travel throughout the body when an acupuncturist sticks needles into acupuncture points in the ear. Endorphins are hormones and chemicals that generate a feel good sensation and well being to the patient. Auricular acupuncture basically works extremely well as a treatment for specific conditions.

There are more than 200 acupuncture points scattered across the auricle or outer ear and each of these acupoints has its own name. All these points as well as their location should be known by a qualified and licensed acupuncturist. All the ear acupuncture points are associated with certain areas of the body in one way or another.

Electrical impulses commence their movement towards the brain and then on to the targeted areas of the person’s body when these acupoints are inserted with acupuncture needles. In this regard, one can envision the ear operating something like a telephone switchboard. Quite amazingly, one part of the body is stimulated when one point in the ear is stimulated.

Therefore, one shouldn’t be surprised when he visits an acupuncturist for treatment of ankle pain and the acupuncturist begins sticking small acupuncture needles into pressure points in the ear. A pleasant sensation can be felt when the pain in the ankle starts to wane despite the fact that the affected area has not been treated directly.

The ear lobe, surprisingly, has its own specific acupuncture points that when stimulated, is able to resolve problems in the throat, sinuses, tonsils, strode, head, and various other parts of the human anatomy. Problems affecting major organs throughout the body including the liver, heart, and lungs can be treated by stimulating the concha of the ear with needles.

Experts and professionals know very well that the ear and the related ear acupuncture points are probably the body’s most potent acupoints. The fact is, there is a very high probability (95 percent) for successful treatment when auricular acupuncture is used. And this is the reason why ear acupuncture points are most worthy of mention.
