auriculotherapy presents the most essential clinical procedures for stimulating
ear reflex points for the alleviation of pain, addiction, and stress-related
disorders. It will also serve as the review course of basic auriculotherapy
material needed for the ACI Certification Exam. This course provides fundamental
knowledge of the somatotopic correspondence of the physical body to the inverted
fetus pattern represented on the external ear. The historical, theoretical, and
anatomical localization of Chinese and European systems of auriculotherapy will
be presented. Specific auricular treatment plans for the relief of visceral,
musculoskeletal, and neuropathic pain will be described. Both didactic
presentations and hands-on training will facilitate a deeper understanding of

of the ear with the macro-system of the body.
