[Subterm of Acupuncture]

Ear acupuncture is one type of acupuncture wherein ear (Auriculare) acupuncture points are utilized that are located outside the main meridians. The projection of an upside down foetus onto the ear is very detailed. The aim of ear acupuncture is to regulate specific organs and body functions. Ear acupuncture has been developed further by Dr. Paul Nogier into the medical system “Auriculomedicine” which includes both diagnostic and therapeutic modalities.
