Acupressure / Acupuncture
Acupressure (acupuncture without needles) and acupuncture are therapies based on a vast body of knowledge collected by the Chinese over 5,000 years. It is a system for diagnosing and treating diseases or energy imbalances within the body without laboratory testing or the use of drugs or surgery. This philosophy explains that there are 14 different meridians that run throughout the body. These meridians form a nervous system that affect organs, tissues, and everything that they pass through. These meridians also have mental and emotional components. Excess or deficient energy in these channels can cause illness, pain and mental or emotional imbalance. The acupressure/acupuncture system stresses that correcting meridian imbalance is important in achieving physical, mental and emotional well-being.
Classical acupressure/acupuncture can be used to treat over 2,000 different conditions including quitting smoking, weight loss, musculoskeletal, respiratory, circulatory, digestive, urinary, reproductive, and nervous system disorders.
There are 3 levels of acupressure/acupuncture treatment:
Pain Control (pressing on certain points to reduce pain)
Formula (using a combination of different points to treat a specific condition)
Classical (finding the imbalance in the meridians through pulse or EMI testing, considered the highest form of acupressure)
Our center provides all levels of acupressure/acupuncture treatments.
Auriculotherapy is a safe non-invasive form of stimulation to the external ear to relieve pain and aid in the correction of mental/emotional, musculoskeletal and organ malfunction. It is an effective treatment that can be used for over 2,ooo conditions. Some include back pain, neck pain, extremity pain (shoulder, hip etc.), arthritis, bursitis, anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD, respiratory problems, digstive problems, reproductive problems and addiction.
The origin of Auriculotherapy began in China over 2,000 years ago. This therapy was also used in ancient Greece and even throughout the Middle Ages. In 1982, the World Health Organization established the International Standard of Auricular points.
Auricular therapy is based on the principal that the whole body is reflected In the ear. Therefore, ear points can be checked to determine if malfunction or disease is present in a particular body part. In addition, those ear points can be used to treat and aid in the healing of that body part.
In the early 1950's, Dr. Norgier, a French Physician developed a "somatotopic map" of the human body (the inverted fetus) showing how the ear relates to the human body. Through extensive research over 20 years, he showed how treatment of the ear through needle-less electrical stimulation can aid in restoring health to diseased areas of the body. Dr. Nogier died in 1996. Since that time, other organizations such as the Department of Anesthesiology at UCLA and the Electrotherapy Association have done research showing Auriculotherpy to be effective for the treatment of chronic pain, narcotic withdrawal, smoking, weight control and even hearing loss.
At our Clinic we do needle-less Auriculotherapy using a laser device. It is a state of the art medical device that can diagnose body areas needing treatment through auricular diagnosis. The device then administers the appropriate polarity current to create equilibrium in those ear points to facilitate healing and wellness in other body parts.
