Auricular acupuncture utilizes acupuncture points found on the external structures of the ear. In Chinese medicine, the whole body is mapped out on the ear! Along the auricle you have points that correspond to each organ system (lungs, liver, kidney, stomach, etc) and points that correspond to every body region (low back, legs, knees, shoulders, elbows, hands, etc). Just like a full-body acupuncture session, auricular acupuncture can be used to impact a multitude of physical and emotional conditions. Utilizing acupuncture points on the ear provides an easily accessible and equally effective means to bring the body to a more balanced state.
While our community acupuncture sessions primarily involve auricular acupuncture, it is also utilized during full sessions to enhance the effects of treatment.
