AURICULAR THERAPY

The auricular therapy is a technique of reflexology, developed in 1956 in Lyon, France by primary care physician Paul Nogier.

Through testimonies from some of his patients who had undergone auricular cauterization to treat sciatica pain and from the discovery of such medical practices since the time of Hippocrates, he was able to create the image of the auricle of an overturned fetus upon discovering that the ear contained the representation of the innervations of various organs and systems. 

Auricular therapy action indentifies a chemical physical stimulus that is conveyed through the ear, the cranial nerves, and in the central nervous system (Bulb, Bridge and Midbrain). In the ear, it is placed around the neuro physiological control of the human body. Based on this assumption, our stimulus headset is able to balance the many functions of the central nervous system.

Auricular therapy consists of using specific points on the ear, which can be stimulated by injection with small needles, infiltration with saline solutions, medications, by small cauterization, or laser stimulation.

Suitable for painful conditions of the spine, the headache and visceral diseases.

NEWS AND GOOD PRACTICE FOR PATIENTS

  • Although therapeutic results are often immediate, in some cases they may be delayed from a few days to weeks depending on a case-by-case basis.

  • There is a possibility that during the course of therapy, there may be a temporary worsening of condition (sometimes on the same day of treatment) or the emergence of other disorders, that were previously unknown due to the main problem—this worsening is not to be viewed negatively as it is an index of the efficacy of the treatment!

  • Please take note that a poorer response to treatment can occur for those who continue to engage in stressful behavior during treatment.

  • Arrive a few minutes before the sessions well rested and refrain from prolonged fasting or eating directly before an appointment.
  • After each session to stand for about 2 hours, it is recommended to reduce the next meal.

  • The disposable needles used help guarantee maximum safety for the patient.
