Auricular Acupuncture

Auricular acupuncture (auriculotherapy) uses points on the ear to treat a wide variety of conditions. Although the ear is small, it has the highest density of acupuncture points of the body. Points on your ear are connected to organs, body parts, and parts of the brain. As a result, auricular acupuncture may be done alone or as a part of a full body treatment. Dr. Snow uses the ear to treat headaches, high blood pressure, asthma and pain. This method is also effective for the treating addiction to cigarettes, food, recreational drugs and prescription drugs.

Auricular acupuncture is used to treat headaches, nausea & stress as well as addiction to food, smoking, and illicit drugs.

Are you wondering if it really works? It does! In 2010 two researchers wondered the same thing so they they started… researching. After carefully selecting studies that provided accurate and measurable data, they examined the results of 9 studies that focused on acute and chronic pain. Data was compiled and they came to a conclusion, “For acute pain and chronic pain, auriculotherapy reduced pain intensity.” How can you argue with that data?

A nice benefit of having an ear treatment is that after your treatment small pellets of herbs or metal may be placed on your ear. This allows you to activate the points between sessions, extending the benefits. Some physicians use small tacks instead of seeds. These require more at home care therefore Dr. Snow does not use tacks.
