Overview

This book provides a comprehensive guide to the principles and practice of Chinese and Western systems of ear acupuncture, commonly known as auriculotherapy. Exceptionally well illustrated with clear drawings and photos, the book offers an in-depth evaluation of the theoretical underpinnings of auriculotherapy, and gives clear treatment plans for over 250 medical conditions. The ear reflex points presented in this handbook are based upon systematic research conducted at the UCLA Pain Management Center and the extensive clinical findings of medical doctors and acupuncturists in China and Europe. This text provides a standardized auricular nomenclature system for designating different anatomical zones of the ear. Health professionals from a wide range of medical modalities, including physicians, acupuncturists, chiropractors, physical therapists, reflexologists, dentists and nurses, have successfully utilized the clinical procedures presented in previous editions of this manual to relieve chronic pain and treat addictions with success.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Janine Norris, University of Westminster, July 2004
"The third edition of this well researched book provides a fascinating insight into the historical development of auriculotherapy. Olesen utilizes his neuroscience background to comprehensively describe the concepts and theories appertaining to the various microsystems within the discipline. Olesen brings together western neurophysiological concepts and oriental energetic concepts, both systems are treated as clinically valid and therapeutically useful. The work will be an invaluable reference source for all practitioners of auriculotherapy."
