Auriculotherapy is a form of needleless acupuncture applied to points on the ear, with the goal of treating other parts of the body.
Imagine your brain as a computer. Inside this computer is a systemic “map” of the body.
Now what if there was “keyboard” access to this computer? We would be able to directly treat a number of problems and conditions using the brain’s computer, just by knowing how to operate its keyboard.
In a sense, this is the neurophysiological theory behind Auriculotherapy.
The nerves originating from reflex points in the ear are projected back to the brain, and as we affect those nerves, we affect outcomes in the body.
