Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture

auricular-ear-acupunctureThe ear is viewed as a separate system, a microcosm,on which the whole body is represented in the form of an upside down fetus. Almost any condition can be treated using ear acupuncture alone or in combination with body acupuncture, however auricular acupuncture can be very effective for addictions, and to quite smoking, and has been proven very effective for the treatment of anxiety and post traumatic stress disorder. It is a very useful form of treatment in the aftermath of natural disasters and other traumatic events where large numbers of people need treatment, as in the aftermath of Katrina and Sandy and the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary.
In fact the army has been contacting its own research and has been hiring licensed acupuncturists to work on soldiers returning from battle, who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.
