Auricular (Ear) AcupunctureThis is a therapy where special ear needles are inserted into the ear at precise locations in order to treat the disease. The ear has ample nerves and blood vessels originating from the much larger supply of nerves and blood vessels of the body. It appears that stimulation of the ear points affects these nerves and blood vessels, which have an influence on the body’s systems. Auricular acupuncture can be used for prevention and treatment of disease, as well as for acupuncture anesthesia.
