Auricular Therapy (Lat. Auricula – “ear” or “ear auricle” + Greek Therapia – treatment) is a method of manipulation with the BAPs of the ear auricle for treatment and health restoration purposes. Auricular Therapy technique, presented in this module, is based on the European scheme of BAPs location. This system originates from the works of Paul Nogier, his first study was published in 1957. The study about the correlation between ear points and health condition was triggered by the traditional way of the treatment of back pains by the method of moxibustion of the ear auricle. Same type of relieving the pain Nogier met on Corsica. After the studies and observation of the auricle condition, he created a map of 30 zones, which was lately corrected. Currently, employees of the Paul Nogier Institute in France continue this work.
Impact on ear auricle was widely used in China as well. First descriptions of the manipulations with the ear auricle was found according to the great doctor of the Tang dynasty -孫思邈 Sūn Sīmiǎo, 581—682. Chinese method of manipulation with the ear is called 耳针 ěrzhēn, acupuncture with needles of the ear auricle. These days, Chinese and European schemes of BAPs of the auricle match for more than 80%. To target the points of the ear auricle, needle acupuncture, moxibustion with mini-moxes, electropuncture, point massage, laser and LED lights, electromagnetic fields are used.
