Auriculotherapy, or auricular therapy, or ear acupuncture, or auriculoacupuncture is a form of acupuncture based on the idea that the ear is a microsystem of the entire body represented on the auricle, the outer portion of the ear. Ailments of the entire body are assumed to be treatable by stimulation of the surface of the ear exclusively or in conjunction with other body points. Auriculotherapy was developed by the French neurologist Dr. Paul Nogier in 1957 using a phrenological method of projection of a fetal Homunculus on the ear for reference of complaints and points for treatment. I recently completed a 3 day intensive study under Dr Paul Nogier, Jr. at Johns Hopkins University. In 1980, a double blind experimentally controlled research study at UCLA Pain Management Center department of anesthesiology UCLA School of Medicine conducted a research study by Richard J. Kroeuning M.D., Ph.D and Terry D. Oleson Ph.D. This study reported in the medical journal, PAIN, verified the scientific accuracy of ear diagnosis. There was a statistically significant level of 75% accuracy achieved in diagnosing musculoskeletal pain problems in 40 pain patients.
