Combination Therapy of Ear and Body Points for Optimal Pain Relief

Course Overview

The course is tailored for body Acupuncturists that want to learn more about both the diagnostic as well as the treatment aspects of ear acupuncture specifically for use in pain pathologies and addictions. This course is the culmination of 20 years of specialization in Auricular therapy, taking the most useful aspects of both Chinese Ear Acupuncture as well as European Auricular Medicine. Practitioners will learn that auricular point localization are an excellent way of guiding the body acupuncturist in their choice of what body points, as well as how many points, to use to get optimal results. In addition, different treatment methods for the ear will be discussed and practiced in this clinically-motivated course.
