Ear Acupuncture

to relax, detox and energise

Ear acupuncture is based on the idea that our body parts and functions are ‘mapped’ onto the external surface of the ear which are also connected to the energy channels of the body - known as “meridians." Therefore, by stimulating different areas on the ear with acupuncture needles, the corresponding body parts and functions can be encouraged in the acceleration of the body's natural restorative healing processes, regulating the body's internal organs and functions. Ear acupuncture is also known as "auricular therapy" and is a micro-system of Chinese acupuncture and is based on the same principles.

The ears have the highest concentration of acupuncture points on the whole body and the points on the ear correspond to the entire physiological system. Ear acupuncture is effective in bringing balance and harmony back to the body's system and the whole body can be treated with ear acupuncture. It is used for a wide range of conditions including addiction, obesity, mood and emotional balancing and many more. This medical system derives from a holistic approach and is used to heal all systems of the body on levels of the physical, emotional and spiritual.

Ear acupuncture has been used in China since ancient times and was mentioned in the famous medical textbook The Yellow Emporer's Classic of Chinese Medicine.

I offer -

Level 1 - Relaxation and detoxification - The application of a 7 point protocol for detoxification and internal toxins, drugs, alcohol and cigarettes, in addition to relaxation for mind and body and spirit to relieve the stresses and strains of daily life.

Level 2 - Liver balance programme - The application of a 21 point protocol to enhance the function of the liver as well as many other organs. This has been found to benefit clients with liver disease, hepatitis B and C.

You don't have to have anything wrong with you to have ear acupuncture! It can be used for relaxation and balancing purposes. Ear acupuncture is not usually painful. Most people do not feel any pain but sometimes you may feel a small prick lasting only for a split second. The treatment is usually done whilst sitting in a chair. I will first take a medical assessment and then decide on the appropriate amount of sterile needles to use, which only takes a short time. I will then lead a meditation or leave you to yourself if you wish. Treaments can last between 20-40 minutes, depending on choice.

This treatment works well combined with massage, aromatherapy and Reiki treatments.

Group ear acupuncture sessions and meditations are also available.
