I had a customer email me and tell me that he had a couple of patients who would not provide any reading on the ear at all.
I found this a bit puzzling because I’ve never had a patient’s ear that couldn’t be measured and treated, especially on the master points.
So let’s review the 3 quick ways to prepare a patient for auriculotherapy.
Clean each ear with alcohol before treatment. This will remove any sweat, conditioner or waxy build up and helps the patient feel comforted with a gentle cleaning of the ear.
Move the StimPlus Pro slowly and at a right angle to the point. There are HUNDREDS of points on the ear and precision is required to test find and treat the EXACT point.
Check your connection to the patient. In order for any micro-current or e-stim device to function it must be grounded. There are two ways to make this connection. a. Place the wrist strap on the patient and plug it into the base of the unit. b. Touch the patients skin with your hand as the other hand holds the StimPlus to the ear point. This will complete the circuit and allow the treatment to proceed.
Did it work?
I received the following a few days later:
Thank you Dr. Larsen,
Today I took extra care to see that the ears were cleaned thoroughly with an alcohol wipe. The stimplus pro worked great and I found a lot of very lively points on all patients!
So I’m going to pass along that tip. The auricle tends to be rather oily on some patients, and cleaning it prior to treatment is always a good idea. The Stimplus Pro works best on clean, dry skin.
I appreciate you taking the time to read my blogs.
To show my appreciation I want you to have this summary PDF of 22 AMAZING research studies conducted on the effectiveness of Auriculotherapy.
