Auriculotherapy is a system that uses stimulation points on the ear to create an effect in corresponding places in the body. The pre-dominate theory of how it works is that the brain receives signals from all parts of the body and then reflects this information onto the ear.
Through the work of Dr. Paul Nogier and the combined research of France, Germany, China and the United States, it has been shown that we can use this system to project a stimulus from the ear back to all parts of the body via the same pathways.
Auriculotherapy has received FDA approval in the United States. Much research has been done to support its use, not just for smoking cessation but with many other conditions. These conditions include, but are not limited to, carpal tunnel syndrome, low back pain, dry mouth (xerostomia), weight control, nausea and pain management for many other areas.
