TCM Auricular Therapy



auricular therapy tcm singapore

Auricular therapy is an ancient therapy and healing technique that was founded and has roots in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), and was a forgotten art until recently. In 1950s, it was re-discovered and further studied and expanded upon by Paul Nogier in France.

Auricular therapy is very well known and has a long history of use in China – in fact, it was also mentioned as the most famous of ancient Chinese medical books as “The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine”.

In today's modern science and medicine, it has been shown to stimulate the release of endorphins, our body’s own feel-good chemicals, which is good for stress management and relaxation.

the ear as a representative microsystem

The approach of TCM auricular therapy sees and treats our individual ears as microsystems that represents our entire human body similar to foot reflexology.

Auricular therapy can be used to treat different parts of the human body by

  1. stimulating and
  2. treating the corresponding auricular points in the ear

These are mainly small seeds from the Vaccaria plant, and after identifying the core issues that's bothering our patients, the TCM physician will apply these auricular ear seeds on very specific points on the ear to provide constant pressure and stimulation.

ongoing treatment & stimulation for days

The good thing about auricular therapy is that the ear seeds and tacks can be left in and on the ear for a couple of days or even up to a week with good hygience (of course, this depends entirely on our TCM physician's advice).

What this means is that you can enjoy the ongoing healing stimulation from auricular therapy for days and days.
