Dr. Paul Nozier developed the inverted fetus concept of auricular acupuncture in the 1950’s.

Since then, it has been embraced by Traditional Chinese Medicine as well. Initially, the Chinese found it to be helpful for gallbladder issues, insomnia, and pain conditions. Currently, acupuncturists use these points for almost any application: weight loss, pain & anesthesia, addiction and withdrawal symptoms, etc.

The World Health Organization recognized the benefit of this technique in 1990.

Using this system, it is possible to bring health to your entire system just by massaging and bringing blood flow to the outer ear 🙂

There is a standard protocol for PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) as well as for addiction accepted by the NADA.

And the auricular map is just one way that acupuncturists use a portion of the body as a microcosm to holistically bring about balance and health to your system. There is such a depth and breadth to our acupuncture methods, the systems and techniques are mainly thousands of years old. It’s amazing what the body can do for itself when this application is used! Your Qi is amazing!!!
