What is auriculotherapy?

Before talking about the needles, you should know what auriculotherapy consists of. This technique is also called ear acupuncture and is practiced by millions of people around the world, since different discomforts in different body regions can be eliminated through it.

Auriculotherapy knowledge is based on the idea that in each person's ear there is a scale map of their anatomy. Therefore, if specific points are stimulated in this area, pain will be alleviated throughout the patient's body.

This technique is special for treating anxiety, alcoholism, smoking, allergies, insomnia and overweight.

It is also useful in the treatment of diseases of the digestive tract, as you can read in this post on our blog, and in the treatment of chronic diseases, since, as you will see later, there are semi-permanent needles for prolonged treatments.

However, those who practice this technique have studied hard and know the specific points that will stimulate each body region. Therefore, not everyone can perform this technique and, more importantly, not everyone can receive it.

What are the contraindications of auriculotherapy?

As we mentioned before, auriculotherapy is not for everyone and it is very important to know in which cases it is contraindicated.

First of all, anyone who has injuries to their ear such as burns, cuts or other discomfort should avoid practicing this technique, since the punctures will only aggravate these injuries.

Because the production of certain hormones that can affect the normal pregnancy process will be stimulated, auriculotherapy should not be performed on pregnant women.

Also, there is some evidence that this technique is not effective in people suffering from a degenerative disorder, such as anemia, schizophrenia, hypertension, heart failure, among others.

Regarding the needles

Now that you know what auriculotherapy is about, we have to talk about the main instrument of this technique: the needles. These are disposable and sterile, ready to be used without any problem.

These needles are much finer and smaller, their size varies between 2 to 3 cm. Also, semi-permanent thumbtacks can be used in this area, which are left for 20 to 30 days of treatment.

Having the right needles is very important, since the success of the therapy will depend on this. Very sensitive people will need finer needles, while those with less sensitivity may need more than one needle.

Remember that the best quality needles are those that are well sterilized and packed, ensuring the hygiene and safety of your patients. Therefore, in our catalog you will find the appropriate needles to perform this procedure.
