Ear (Auricular) Acupuncture
The reflex zone in the ear is linked to several organs within the body. A small magnetic ball is placed upon the chosen reflex point and fixed into place with a plaster. The patient is then required to apply pressure, with thumb and forefinger, stimulating the reflex point, several times per day, for upto a week. This provides a similar function to acupuncture performed with needles. Sometimes it is necessary to apply this technique to extend the effects of a treatment initially performed with needles.
