Auricular (ear) therapy is a form of acupuncture that can be performed by applying small "ear seeds" to various external parts of the ear. Commonly called "ear seeds therapy", auricular therapy has been used successfully to treat a variety of different conditions such as depression, insomnia and anxiety. In addition, auricular therapy helps people lose weight, quit smoking, treats alcohol or drug addiction, soothes arthritis and back pain, reduces high blood pressure and can assist in the healing of many other health problems.
Diagnosis involves examining the ear for tenderness or for variations in electrical conductivity, and the therapy can be used to treat the same body systems as standard acupuncture without the use of acupuncture needles. Instead, smooth herbal seeds are attached to the skin of the ear with a tiny adhesive bandage to stimulate the ear points. Typically, the seeds are kept in place for about a week, and patients can stimulate the points themselves by pressing the seeds a few times during the day.
Since the ear represents the entire body, auricular therapy can be used to treat numerous conditions. In our practice, we use auricular therapy primarily to promote weight loss and to help patients to quit smoking. We also use it in the treatment of chronic debilitating pain, stress, anxiety, depression, addiction, insomnia, and many other conditions.
