Auricular Reflexology

Auricular reflexology is a fast-growing therapy. based on a combination of traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Auriculotherapy. (Auriculotherapy is a therapy developed in France by Dr Paul Nogier in the 1950’s.) Auricular reflexology is nothing new. For example, you can see records of treatments on the ears in the earliest Chinese medical books dating back to ancient times.


Auricular Reflexology is the stimulation of the external part of the ear. The whole body is mirrored on the ear. Stimulation to a specific point on the ear that corresponds to a specific point in the body, will bring balance to that area either through an increase or decrease of energy. Numerous nerves supply the ear. As a result, Auricular Reflexology techniques directly stimulate the central nervous system.


There are over 200 acu-points on the ear. Chinese Acupuncture uses all of these points. In Auricular Reflexology we use a selection of these and instead of using needles, seeds or magnets, we stimulate the points using finger and thumb pressure.




Auricular reflexology is not as well-known as foot or hand reflexology, but can be particularly helpful for the relief and management of pain. Application of auricular reflexology is fast and easy. You massage pressure points on the ear to treat aches and pains throughout the body.


Auricular Reflexology is a standalone therapy. You can also incorporate it into a regular foot/hand reflexology session. It is a simple and extremely efficient therapy, primarily because the ears are easily accessible, and people do not have to remove any clothing to receive treatment. It can be used in all age groups (children to the elderly). Treatment is most beneficial when it is administered regularly, i.e. once or twice a week. Most clients find that having their ears worked is deeply relaxing and stimulating at the same time.


Furthermore, it is a rewarding and effective therapy that enables you to empower your clients to help themselves. You can learn a lot about a person and their state of health from assessing the ears.
