Auricular Therapy is acupuncture that targets points in the ears. The ears connect with every part of the body and auricular therapy can be used to treat a variety of diseases. Auricular Therapy can be done sitting and requires no preparation from the patient, making it a very convenient treatment protocol. In addition to needles inserted in the ears for a short period of time, the patient can be given ear seeds which are little beads that press down on acupuncture points and are kept in the ears until they fall out. This offers prolonged benefits from the treatment.
