The Science Behind Why Auriculotherapy Works
Auriculotherapy, also known as Ear Acupunture or Pressure, are specific points on the ear, each associated with specific parts of the brain that control specific parts of the body. This is called a microsystem. Foot Reflexology is another example of a microsystem.
The ear's close location to the brain make Auriculotherapy the most effective pain and repairative reflexology treatment. The nerve pathway does not have far to travel to reach the Central Nervous System, the brain. The brain then gives direction and instruction to the healing processes. Stimulating tender reflex points, ignites metabolic processes in the brain to release naturally produced pain relieving analgesics, chemicals, hormones, oxygen and other healing constituents to the affected area of discomfort or imbalance. The same energy system used in the modalty of whole body Acupunture is also stimulated because the Yin meridians are directly connected to the nerves and the Yang meridians are connected to the Yin meridians, thus completing the energy circuitry.
The benefits of Auriculotherapy are holistic treatment, diagnosis, and prevention of further tissue damage and symptoms due to an untreated blockage.
