Auricular Mobilization

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. 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.

Upper limbs Musculoskeletal Pain – AcuOsteo method – physiopathology and treatment by Acupuncture and Osteopathy

Upper limbs Musculoskeletal Pain – AcuOsteo method – physiopathology and treatment by Acupuncture and Osteopathy

Musculoskeletal pain is one of the most frequent reasons for consultation in my own clinic. In my experience, Acupuncture and Osteopathic medicine are two effective techniques and they are synergistic in treating pain. Often pain is generically reported to a widespread area of a joint, together with some rigidity and it can be difficult to identify the Acupuncture Channel involved in a musculoskeletal pain. Osteopathic manipulative treatment’s aim is to bring back joints in their physiological position, reduce pain and limitation of the movement, and help to identify the channel that needs to be treated with Acupuncture.

Dr. Huang’s Auricular Medicine

Dr. Huang’s Auricular Medicine

INTRODUCTION TO DR. LI-CHUN HUANG “Some two thousand years ago (dating back to Neijing), Chinese acupuncturists had discovered that the meridians in the body were also linked to the ear. They also found that the ear can reflect the conditions of the internal organs. What was discovered at that time seemed superficial and not very significant. It was not until the French physician Dr. Paul Nogier discovered a relationship between diseases and the ear that the study of the human ear and its value in diagnosis and treatment began to take off in China. This was much more significant than the body acupoints that were discovered and mentioned earlier. When body Acupuncture reached its peak, half a dozen acupuncturists were vigorously attempting to perfect ear acupoint diagnosis and treatment, each trying to take the lead.
