Auricular acupuncture consists of inserting and stimulating needles on the ear. This form of acupuncture is very effective and has a broad range of uses such as: Digestive problems, chronic pain, regulating the menstrual cycle, headaches, and blood stasis. This is just a small list of many conditions that can be treated with ear acupuncture. Normally, when you go in for a regular acupuncture treatment ear acupuncture will be combined with body acupuncture. It's also very likely that you will be given ear seeds to wear home; these can be stimulated by pressing them between your fingers in order to stimulate the point on the ear.
