Auricular Mobilization

21 April 2022

At this seminar you learn to apply a practical, often very effective tool which can be applied stand alone or in combination with other therapies such as TCM, herbal medicine, traditional acupuncture, homeopathy and so on.

In many, if not all, physical ailments one or more spinal segments are involved, often leading to local hypertonia and decreased range of mobility of vertebrae and a self- perpetuating spinal block. Such spinal blocks may attribute to persistence of segmentally related complaints. Applied elements of embryology, neuroanatomy and neurophysiology are necessary to understand the role of segmental relations in a range of health problems to be treated with auricular mobilization.

Spinal blocks represent themselves at the auricle. This auricle representation can easily be detected and manually corrected. In auricular mobilization the neck and back themselves need not to be manipulated which is a big advantage compared to manual therapy and chiropractic and makes it a safe procedure.

Quite often patients experience immediate decline of complaints and a general feeling of relief after auricular mobilization.

Basic theory, embryological, neuroanatomical and neurophysiological are presented along with practical instruction. After this seminar you will be able to practice auricular mobilization yourself.
