The ear reflex points presented in this handbook are based upon extensive research conducted at the UCLA Pain Management Center which compared the pioneering auriculotherapy work of the French physician, Dr. Paul Nogier, to ear acupuncture charts developed in China. Auriculotherapy is an alternative treatment modality used to alleviate different conditions of the body by stimulating specific regions of the ear. The external ear is somatotopically viewed as an inverted fetus, with specific parts of the body represented on specific regions of the ear in an orderly arrangement.
To allow for international understanding of this innovative, clinical procedure, all ear reflex points have been identified by a specific number, an indication of whether it is a point within the Chinese or French auricular nomenclature systems, and a name which corresponds to the body that is represented. All ear relex points names have been listed in nine languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Japanese, Korean, Russian and Persian. Also, presented is a new, standardized, auricular nomenclature system designating anatomical zones of the ear for the use in international communications. Specific auriculotherapy treatment plans for addictions, pain, and a variety of other clinical problems are shown in detailed drawings of the ear. The most popular section of this book is the pictured treatment plans the twenty-seven disorders most effectively treated using auriculotherapy.
