Introduction to Auriculotherapy: A Value-Added Therapy to Any Medical Care Plan
Did you know?
Did you know that the auricle of the ear is the only region of the body where the vagus nerve extends to the superficial surface of the body?
This is one of several explanations to support the growing body of scientific and clinical evidence for using auriculotherapy to treat a variety of pathological conditions including but not limited to pain, drug addition, cancer care, anxiety, insomnia, weight management and more.
This seminar will review the medical indication and application of auriculotherapy. Protocols will include anterior and posterior acu-points on the ear. Each participant will receive 2 hours of combined lecture and practical application, a PDF of the lecture notes, an ear probe and ear seeds to keep, worksheets for acu-points, protocols including anterior and posterior acu-points and supervised practice.
Auriculotherapy is a value-added service due to the efficacy, low cost, non-invasive nature and minimal time required. In some cases, seeds can be applied in less than 2 minutes and patients can self-stimulate the points over several days.
