The Science Behind Why Auriculotherapy Works
There are nerves in the ears that are associated with all the nerves through out the entire body. The ear's close location to the brain make it the most effective reflexology treatment because the nerves do not have far to travel to reach the Central Nervous System, the brain. The Brain gives direction and instruction to the processes. Stimulating ear tender reflex points, send messsages to release natural analgesic chemicals, hormones and other healing constituents to the affected area of discomfort or imbalance. The energy system is also stimulated due to the Yin meridians being directly connected to the nerves. The Yang meridians are indirectly involves as well since they are directly connected to the Yin meridians.
Equally important about the benefits of Auriculotherapy is the use for diagnosis as well as prevention.
