What is Auricular Acupressure?

Auricular Acupressure uses specific hand and finger techniques to manually stimulate reflex points found on the auricle of the external ear.   These reflex points are connected to all parts of the body.

There are no lotions or potions, no needles or knives involved in the treatment, just fingers and ears do the work to activate the body’s entire self healing potential.

Ear Reflex Points 

Auricular Acupressure is the study of the reflexes.

Auricular Acupressure therapies are natural therapeutic methods derived from this study based on the principle that there are reflexes in the body that map to other parts, glands, and organs of the body.
In 1957 Dr Paul Nogier discovered the upside down man in the ear and he was named the Father of Auricular Therapy by Traditional Chinese Medicine, because even though they had studied the ears for thousands of years they had never found the upside down baby. This discovery made it possible to locate areas of imbalance in the body. 
By overlaying the inverted fetus on the ear, you can easily see where all body parts are located on the ears as shown below.
