Auricular Acupuncture

 

Auricular acupuncture is a recognised method in the area of addiction rehabilitation treatment. It entails placing the tips of needles or pins into the meridians of a person’s ear.  It operates on the principle that the human ear has a micro-system, connecting to various sections of the brain and when these points are stimulated, it sends electrical impulses to the brain. The brain then stimulates an action in the body that the point is connected to.  This holistic practice has been employed to help purge the body of toxins as part of a rehab detoxification process. Auricular acupuncture has furthermore been used to stimulate the body’s natural endorphin’s, a chemical released within the brain which can brighten a person’s mood, treat anxiety, fight cravings and stave off insomnia.
