Auricular Acupuncture may be just what the doctor ordered! Auricular acupuncture is acupuncture that focuses on acupuncture points in your ears.
It involves either the use of small hair thin needles or the use of vaccaria ear seeds (no needles) at specific points along the pathways of energy in the body called meridians.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a blocked or disrupted flow of energy (qi) can have a negative effect on your physical and mental health. Acupuncture aims to restore the flow of qi by resolving any blockages or disruption thus resolving the symptom or negative effect to you physical or mental health.
There are more than 200 acupuncture points in the ear. Auricular Acupuncture can be used for a wide range of conditions, and it is especially useful to relieve pain, calm the mind and treat withdrawal symptoms from addictions. But that’s not all….

An Auricular acupuncture session is generally shorter than a traditional acupuncture session, lasting only 20-30 minutes. Auricular acupuncture is performed while the patient is seated in a quiet room. Your acupuncturist may ask you questions about your health, sleep, appetite, digestion, and mood. The needles or seeds are inserted and remain in place for 10-20 minutes. It is usually very relaxing and some patients even take a nap!
The needles or seeds are removed and your acupuncturist may ask how you are feeling. Most people feel refreshed and calm.
Auricular acupuncture is a form of acupuncture that focuses on the energy of the body in the ears and can be helpful for numerous health issues from chronic pain and stress to headaches, mood disorders and addictions.
