Ear Acupuncture is the insertion of very small and thin needles in certain points of the ear. In TCM it is believed that the ear is an hologram of the body. This means that each part of the body is represented in a certain area of the ear. By using this modality we can treat many areas of the body at the same time, for example the abdomen and the lower back. Auriculotherapy was first developed by the French neurologist Paul Nogier, publishing his results in 1957. After this the ear map in China was developed according to the theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine, however, Nogier is still known in China as the “Father of Auriculotherapy”.
