Neck pain, Shoulder Pain, Elbow Pain and Weight Loss – 3 Case Studies 5/5 (37)

Are you utilizing auricular therapy in your practice all of the time? If not, you are missing out on some amazing success stories!

I get phone calls and e-mails from practitioners, almost on a daily basis, with questions and success stories regarding auricular therapy treatment.

The results that our users are getting from auricular treatment are absolutely amazing!

I have used auricular therapy in my practice over the years, but lately I have begun using it with almost every patient.

I get so many phone calls from practitioners who are getting great results, that I decided to utilize it with every treatment and see what would happen.

My experiences have been OUTSTANDING!

Here are just a few of the experiences that I have had with the Auriculo 360 program, StimPlus Pro and ear seeds in my private practice.

#1: 57-Year-Old Male— Neck pain and Right Shoulder Pain

This gentleman came in for acupuncture as a last resort. He had been to two chiropractors for 6 months each, a neurosurgeon, a physical therapist, and a massage therapist.

He was diagnosed with compression at T1/T2 and experienced numbness and pain radiating down the arm to the last two fingers. My office was his last stop before surgery!

He has been treated five times with a combination of local acupuncture, tendinomuscular channel treatment, and cupping. After each treatment, I have him move his arm and tell me where the pain and numbness remains.

I pull up the “Shoulder Pain” protocol in the Auriculo 360 program and treat the electrically sensitive points with the StimPlus Pro. After the treatment I placed ear seeds on each of those sensitive points and assigned the homework. His homework is to push on those points each time he feels the pain begin to come back. On his fifth treatment he reported that he had been pain free for 14 days!

#2: 44-Year-Old Female—Right Tennis Elbow

This patient was doubtful about the whole idea of acupuncture in general. She was afraid of needles and wanted to know if I could help her tennis elbow without the use of needles. I pulled out my Stimplus Pro and opened up the Auriculo 360 program.

After treating the electrically active points on the “Tennis Elbow” protocol, she was completely pain-free! After treatment, I sent her home with seeds on the same points I had just treated so that she could push on the seeds if her pain came back. It didn’t come back… One treatment, pain gone, no needles!

#3: 57-Year-Old Female—Weight Loss

stimplus_auriculoThis patient had her own weight loss protocol, but used acupuncture as an extra tool. Both she and her friend were on the same weight loss regimen for 4 months. Her friend lost 15 pounds and she lost 30 pounds!

What was the difference?

My patient came in for auricular therapy every two weeks. I did the “Weight Control” protocol with the StimPlus and applied ear seeds, asking her to push on the seeds if she was feeling cravings.

She reported that when she had ear seeds, she felt less hungry.

Incorporating auricular therapy with every treatment has expedited my treatment results. Patients say WOW every time I place an ear seed in the right place and the pain magically disappears.

They love having a tool that they can take home with them for self-help.

I love to utilize auricular therapy in my treatment protocols because it is EASY and EFFECTIVE.

  1. I used auricula PC for a visitor for his constipation
    it worked immediately. he said “wow”

  2. Hi Kimberly, you may recall a previous post of mine where I mentioned a friend who wanted me to try auriculotherapy for his hip and knee pain. I had asked you about what to do when a patient has multiple complaints – this friend also has trouble sleeping – and how to approach this with auriculotherapy.

    Focusing on his pain first as this is his main complaint, I’ve now given him 8 treatments by simply following the hip/knee protocols.

    He started to get relief after the 3rd treatment. Yesterday, when I went to his house to give him another treatment he said the pain in his knee and hip had virtually gone. His pain had been constant whenever he was standing or walking.

    He’d had hip pain for over 12 months – he is 64yrs old and has been told he needs a joint replacement, but I guess we’ll wait and see about that.

    His knee pain developed about 6 months ago, I think because the hip pain made him limp and favor one leg, which put extra strain on one knee. The knee pain went quickly then the hip responded.

    I will probably continue with a couple more treatments for his hip and knee, then start treating his other problems.

    Will keep you posted.


    1. Thanks for sharing that great story Matthew! You will find that the more you continue to use auricular therapy, the more you will hear your patients say WOW. I shake my head and say WOW almost daily. We truly are blessed to to have such amazing resources available to us.


  3. Nothing to add insofar as experience, just want to tell you, Kimberly, that I love reading and learning from your blogs. I also have TCM background and although I don’t own the stimulus pro 3D package yet, I do enjoy the dimension added to my practice using AcuGraph4, and want to follow the auric ulnar posts as we’ll.

    1. I’m glad you are enjoying the blog posts. I would not run my private practice with out the Stimplus. It is such an effective, dynamic tool that bring instant results.

      AcuGraph incorporates auriculotherapy to balance the meridians based on graph imbalances. Auriculo 3D suggests ariculotherapy treatments for specific symptom relief. The two together (along with the Stimplus) lead to amazing results. Let us know when we can help you!


So, what do you think about it?
