Ear Acupuncture For Weight Loss
Ear acupuncture is called Auricular acupuncture. The ear is a microcosm of your whole body. That means that you can treat anything by treating the ear points. The map of acupuncture points on the ear shows an inverted fetus. I keep an ear acupuncture chart on my wall and everyone asks me why there is a baby on the ear…
Some acupuncturists use ear acupuncture to treat appetite. Some people use ear stapling. This is not really a Chinese medicine thing and I do not personally know acupuncturists who do this. I do not agree with putting staples in people’s ears. I use ear pellets. The pellets are little balls that are on a small piece of tape. They can be left on the ear and pressed as needed.
Ear stapling is not taught in acupuncture schools, to my knowledge. I do not recommend it and do not do it. Regular acupuncture treatments and Chinese herbs can help you lose weight with no gimmicks.
