This is the use of points on ears in order to influence the body.
Auriculotherapy - part of microsystem acupuncture, originated in ancient times. On the surface of our body, we can find a kind of reflection of the internal organs. The most famous microsystem is located on the heels and is widely used in reflexology.
The relationship between the ear and internal organs was studied by the French doctor Paul Nogier, who improved the ear map and the location of the points.
Nowadays, auriculotherapy is widespread and is used to relieve symptoms of depression, get rid of addictions, treat pain of various kinds and much more. We use needles and pins, various seeds and magnetic balls which stick to the point.
In my practice, I really like to use the ear, most often I use seeds and pins with which the patient walks for a day or two and periodically massages them.
