Ear Acupuncture and Acupressure also known as Auriculotherapy, are valuable therapeutic modalities.
Consider this; every part of the body, every nerve, muscle, bone, joint and organ is represented in the Ear where it has a corresponding Acupuncture point. Usually if there is a health problem it will be visible to the trained eye, in the patient’s ear in the form of a discoloration, or swelling. Someone with an arthritic knee, for example, would commonly have a discoloration in the corresponding knee location on the ear possibly with visible venule. It is fascinating that the ear can be used both for diagnosis as well as effective treatment.

The Ears are situated close to the brain. Stimulating acupuncture points in the Ear sends direct healing messages to the brain that sends healing to corresponding parts of the body.

In Auriculotherapy we have great treatments for relieving inflammation manifesting systemically in the whole body, as can happen with rheumatoid arthritis or fibromyalgia. Results are often immediate. There are also interesting combinations of points for weight loss by reducing food cravings, increasing the metabolic rate, detoxification, and sculpting fat away from body regions.

Auriculotherapy is a major player in the holistic synthesis offered at the Acupuncture & Wellness Clinic of Jonathan Breslow. It combines extremely well with scalp and body acupuncture. Multiple messages for healing are thus simultaneously given. As a result seemingly hopeless and impossible health problems can be significantly improved and in some cases resolved. The results of this Acupuncture synthesis have compelled the attention and respect of a number of medical doctors.
