Auriculotherapy is a therapeutic intervention in which stimulation of the auricle of the external ear is utilised to alleviate health conditions in other parts of the body. While originally based upon the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture, the somatotopic correspondence of speciific parts of the body to specific parts of the ear was first developed in France.
Auriculotherapy may assist with:
- Muscular - skeletal complaints
- Pain relief
- Psychological problems
- Headaches and migraine
- Homeostatic balance
Auriculotherapy can be combined with Reflexology or Bowen Therapy to further enhance treatments.
