Auricular acupuncture

Auriculopuncture (Ear acupuncture) is one of the basic systems of "micro-acupuncture". It is based on the principle of “similarity”, meaning that the entire body can be represented in miniature within the body itself.The acupuncture points found on the ear auricle represent the body parts and internal organs. The function of the specific body organs, sense of pain and appetite are influenced by inserting the needles into the key points. Modern auriculopuncture was developed in the middle of the 20 century by some French physicians.
