Why auricular acupuncture?
- The ear is a “microsystem” comprised of acupuncture points that coordinate to every part of the body.
- An alternative medicine treatment in which specific points on the ear are stimulated in order to promote healing in other areas of the body.
- The goal of ear acupuncture is to improve the flow of vital energy (known as qi or chi) throughout the body in order to restore balance
- An imbalance in these is believed to be at the root of many health issues.
- An average treatment session is only 20-30 minutes in length
