German Auricular Acupuncture is acupuncture on the external ear surface.
The outer ear (auricle) is a map of all your body parts in the form of an upside-down fetus. All the fine details of every part of the emotional and physical body are represented.
The needles are placed on the surface of the ear.
By examining the ear, the therapist indicates precisely where the pain is. Disturbances that delay, or prevent, the healing process are located. The therapist then determines the priority points for treatment.
