Ear Acupuncture / Auricular Acupuncture

Ear acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment method to normalize the dysfunctions and imbalances in the body by stimulating specific reflex points in the ear.

About Ear Acupuncture

Also known as auricular acupuncture and auriculotherapy, ear acupuncture was first used in the early 1970s in France for treating sciatica and other pains. It is based on the Traditional Chinese Medicine concept that ear acupuncture points stimulation will send a signal to the brain. The vrain will then send signals to the specific body parts or areas that they are being treated. Clinical studies compare it to reflexology; only it is done on the ear.

It is now employed extensively throughout the world and the application extended to weight loss, infertility, anxiety and insomnia. Health issues are revealed in auricular diagnosis by looking at the external part of the ear. In a 2007 Pain Management clinical study, researchers found that changes in ear acupuncture points or specific ear points occur when there are internal disorders in the body.

Auricular Accupuncture Benefits

This ear seeds treatment is safe, noninvasive, and generally painless. As they are small and barely noticeable, patients enjoy the convenience and continual stimulation. Recent clinical research showed its effectiveness in patients who are fighting substance addiction. One advantage that auricular acupuncture has over the common medical treatment is that it is non-addictive as compared to contemporary medicines that are used to treat symptoms like anxiety and withdrawal.

Ear acupuncture is effective when dealing with chronic pain such as pain from trauma, infections, nerve disorders, post-surgery and tumors. It is also used to treat infectious diseases such as ear infection, tonsillitis, pneumonia, rheumatoid arthritis, enteritis, pharyngitis and more. It is also a popular Traditional Chinese Medicine method to treat allergies, endocrine system disorders and epidemic diseases like flu, fever, dysentery, whooping cough and others.

What to Expect

Your first visit for a Balance Health acupuncture Hong Kong session will begin with an in-depth assessment of your condition and an initial treatment. It involves a gentle needling technique clients may feel almost nothing or a small pinch which disappears in a moment. Clients have different levels of sensitivity and the practitioner works closely with them to maintain comfort and a positive experience. The acupuncturist may also incorporate other modalities in one treatment session to ensure the correct effect is achieved and normalize the function of the body’s systems. During the session clients may choose to sleep, meditate or relax by listening to music.

The most common client concerns that we encounter are pain related conditions.
