Auriculotherapy: An Introductory Course for Healthcare Professionals

Sunday, September 22, 2019

Back by popular demand!

Acupuncture

Did you know that the auricle of the ear is the only region of the body
where the vagus nerve extends to the superficial surface of the body?

This is one of several explanations to support the growing body of scientific and clinical evidence for using auriculotherapy to treat a variety of pathological conditions including but not limited to pain, drug addition, cancer care, anxiety, insomnia, weight management and more.

This seminar will review the medical indication and application of auriculotherapy. Protocols will include anterior and posterior acu-points on the ear. Each participant will receive 2 hours of combined lecture and practical application, a PDF of the lecture notes, an ear probe and ear seeds to keep, worksheets for acu-points, protocols including anterior and posterior acu-points and supervised practice.

Auriculotherapy is a value-added service due to the efficacy, low cost, non-invasive nature and minimal time required. In some cases, seeds can be applied in less than 2 minutes and patients can self-stimulate the points over several days.

Course content:

  1. Origin and evolution of auriculotherapy
  2. Review of ear anatomy, embryology and innervation
  3. Identifying and locating key acu-points on the anterior and posterior ear
  4. Identifying yang alarm points
  5. Application of ear seeds using an ear probe
  6. Clinical scenarios
  7. Review of the medical literature and evidence
  8. Evidence-based auriculotherapy protocols

Bonuses:
There will be a surprise raffle for each group (1/16 chance of winning!).
Dr. Moore will be providing a complimentary botanical glycerite tasting.
