Acupuncture has existed as a healing therapy for over 3,000 years. BESANA Health & Wellness is proud to offer 5 point ear acupuncture, or auriculotherapy, to promote healing throughout the body. According to the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) protocol, 5 point ear acupuncture places five sterile needles in each ear. Each needle is inserted into a precise point in the ear to help stimulate various responses in the body.
Ear acupuncture can help to promote:
- Stress reduction
- Mental clarity
- Improved sleep
- Decreased pain
- Decreased tension and anxiety
- Improved mood
- Decreased cravings
Ear acupressure is a non-invasive alternative to ear acupuncture that uses small beads or seeds instead of needles to promote healing throughout the body. Ear acupressure affixes tiny seeds inside the ear with medical adhesive tape. Placed at precise auricular points, the seeds place pressure on the ear and are self-stimulated for effect. They stay in place for two to five days.
Ear acupressure is used to help treat:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Mood (anxiety, stress, depression, PTSD)
- Weight loss
FAQs: Ear Acupuncture/Acupressure in Denver, CO
How does ear acupuncture or ear acupressure work?
Ear acupuncture/acupressure is based on the theory that precise points on the ear’s surface correspond to various points on the body. When these ear points are stimulated, it sends a signal to the brain which then sends a response to the corresponding point in the body.
Are there any side effects with ear acupressure?
After your session, it’s possible to experience temporary side effects including headache, dizziness, slight bleeding, bruising, temporary discomfort or fatigue.
