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. 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.
