By Terry Oleson.
This comprehensive guide to auriculotherapy covers the principles and practice of Chinese and Western systems of ear acupuncture. Richly illustrated with more than 400 clear drawings and photos, the book offers in-depth evaluations of the theoretical underpinnings of auriculotherapy, and gives clear treatment protocols for over 250 medical conditions, including drug detoxification, pain in limbs, back pain, head and neck pain, neurological disorders, stress-related problems, and a myriad of other conditions. Recommended acupuncture points and diagrams of point locations are shown for each treatment.
The ear reflex points presented in this handbook are based upon systematic research conducted at the UCLA Pain Management Center and the extensive clinical findings of medical doctors and acupuncturists in China and Europe. This text provides a standardized auricular nomenclature system for designating different anatomical zones of the ear.
