Auriculotherapy refers to the stimulation of the auricle of the ear by very small acupuncture needles. It is very effective in treating conditions that involve hyperactivity of the Central Nervous System (CNS) such as anxiety, bipolar conditions, addictions, obsessive/compulsive conditions, and a variety of other conditions.
Generally, auriculotherapy is very sedating because it tries to decrease the fight or flight response of the sympathetic nervous systems by increasing the parasympathetic nervous system response. Generally, needles are inserted in the ear on the side of your dominant hand (right handed, right ear). Much like body acupuncture needles, these needles are very fine (even thinner than body needles) and are very short.
