What is Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture?
Auricular or Ear Acupuncture is a specialised complementary system of medicine where acupuncture points on the outer ears are treated. These points correspond to all areas of our body. Gentle stimulation creates a specific response, aids our natural healing mechanism and helps us to rebalance. By sending the right signals to different areas of our body, it promotes natural self-healing and restores health.
What are the benefits?
Because the ears are easily accessible and you do not need to remove any clothing, Auricular Acupuncture can be a very effective and quick method of treatment. One of the fastest areas where Auricular Acupuncture is being used is for the treatment of addictions. It has been a popular choice for helping with smoking cessation and weight loss in recent years. The treatment helps reduce cravings for nicotine and food. Her Majesty’s Prison Service and many drugs agencies up and down the United Kingdom use Auricular Acupuncture to help clients with their drug and alcohol addictions. It can be particularly helpful for anxiety disorders and depression.
