Lecturer for Ear-Acupuncture

The auricular acupuncture, which has developed mainly on the findings of Paul Nogiers from the 50s, takes as a so-called microsystem a special position inside of the system of Traditional Chinese Medicine. You can use ear acupuncture for treating symptoms, but you can also influence with ear acupuncture the energy system of the body. Simultaneously, it is useful to put this method of therapy in the context of the treatment concept of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), whose roots are about 2000 years older: Ear acupuncture offers the physician or natural health professional the opportunity to return the sick patient into balance and optimize his energy system.
