Auricular Therapy in Naperville IL
When it comes to natural treatment for an astonishingly wide range of symptoms and disorders, from your forehead to your feet, you could say that the ears have it -- or rather that we have it, in the form of Auricular therapy at House Call Chiropractic and Acupuncture.
At Naperville Chiropractic and Acupuncture, Dr. Richard Hagmeyer, applies painless electrical stimulation to a number of specific points on the ear that corresponds to different parts of the body to help restore normal physical function.
Auricular therapy works very similarly to acupuncture, to the extent that it's often referred to as "ear acupuncture." But this technique, which dates back 3,000 years or more, differs significantly from classical acupuncture in that it focuses not on the main body's energy channels or "meridians" but on the many reflex points between the ear and the central nervous system.
Each point corresponds to nerves that influence a different organ, symptom or medical condition, with the ear serving as a micro-system representing a model of the entire body.
This means that stimulation of the right point of combination of points can alleviate up to 2,000 known health issues, including:
One other difference from classical ear acupuncture is the fact that Dr. Hagmeyer doesn't have to apply needles to your ears' auricular points. Instead, he merely applies an electrical stimulator that achieves the same positive healing effects.
