Ear Acupuncture WINS 5/5 (58)

Do you want to be a BETTER acupuncturist? Hands down, adding auriculotherapy, or ear acupuncture, will make your treatment more effective, immediately!

  • I’ve watched a patient’s jaw drop in amazement as pain immediately disappears with a single auriculotherapy treatment.
  • Ear treatment is easy to learn yet extremely effective.
  • You don’t have to use needles to get amazing results.
  • Auriculotherapy is so effective that many practitioners use is as a single modality approach.

Ten years ago, it wasn’t as easy to get effective results. It’s not that auriculotherapy didn’t work 10 years ago. It always worked. Here’s the deal….ten years ago the most amazing auriculotherapy resource on the market did not exist.


Background Story

I began working for Miridia Technology 8 years ago. My first assignment was to compile all of the popular, written auriculotherapy resources on the market into a single database. Before that time, if you wanted to use auriculotherapy, you had to carry a book around with you in order to memorize points and combinations. I was that girl. In fact, when I wanted to experiment with auriculotherapy, I’d lay an open book on my patient’s belly and turn from page to page trying to find the right combination for treatment.

Not very professional, right?

I’ve learned a lot through the process of compiling data. Not all points are created equal. There are master points, functional points, musculoskeletal points, etc. Not all points are necessary to treat. In fact, most points will not be effective for treatment. Finding the EXACT right point is important, and it’s not always in the same place. It can move. Some points are “electrically active” and some are not.

In the last 10 years, the ability to get immediate results with auriculotherapy has expedited 100%. With the addition of Auriculo 360 and the Stimplus Pro in the modern acupuncture world, acupuncturists are getting AMAZING results, immediately!

Here’s a Simple, Two-Step Approach

1. Open Auriculo 360

Having the right points at your fingertips is half the battle. Auriculo 360 has everything you need to begin effective treatment right away. Do a digital search for your patient’s chief complaint. Tried and tested auriculotherapy protocols will immediately pop up. (see picture below)

Each protocol will exhibit a map of common ear points so you can begin treatment right away.

2. Pull out Your Stimplus Pro

The Stimplus Pro has become one of my favorite tools both in and outside the clinic. Use the device to scan the ear map to see which points are electrically active. Once you find an electrically active point, simply push the button and treat. Repeat this process until you have treated the necessary points.

After years of experience, I have found that treatment with microcurrent via the Stimplus Pro is often even more effective than using needles, especially when treating pain-related conditions. The instantaneous relief the patient receives when using the correct points on the ear is absolutely amazing. After treating with the Stimplus Pro, I like to add ear seeds as patient homework. Choosing the exact point is key. As the patient returns home with ear seeds on the perfect ear points, they become empowered for further healing. The patient can easily press on the seeds to self-treat until the pain pathways have completely resolved.

The Stimplus Pro really is a beautiful addition to the acupuncture clinic. It helps any practitioner be more effective with treatment. For me, it helped me to develop the reputation in my community as a pain specialist. Of course, the patients love it too. My favorite part of the treatment is the high-five I get at the end when the patient realizes you just magically took away all of their pain.

Kick your treatment up a notch with the Stimplus Pro! 

The Good News

The good news for you? It doesn’t have to take you 10 years to gain this type of experience. You can be more effective NOW. Here’s a video of how I get immediate instantaneous results with shoulder pain using auriculotherapy.
