Electric stimulation therapy is one of the most powerful tools in alternative medicine. Used for its many health benefits, auricular therapy is considered safe and effective when administered by a trained healthcare professional. Sessions consist of very fine electrical stimulation therapy being placed into the skin. Some people feel tingling or numbness at these points, but most feel very little or no discomfort at all. Many people report experiencing relief from physical and mental health conditions following one or more treatments.
Did you know…
electric stimulation therapy is used by approximately 3 million Americans every year? The therapy has been growing in popularity in the States, yet has been used in Eastern medicine since ancient times. The Chinese believe auricular therapy is capable of balancing the body’s ‘qi’ energy, ultimately supporting good health and providing relief from pain and illness. In Western culture, many practitioners believe that it instead stimulates the nerves, muscles, and connective tissues to promote healing.
