Abstract

Auriculotherapy, Ear Acupuncture – The Practitioner’s Guide  by Jim Chalmers stands alone as the first textbook in English to describe in detail, stage-by-stage, the skills necessary to become proficient and achieve consistent clinical success with Auriculotherapy.

It integrates the pioneering discoveries of Dr Paul Nogier (the man described by the Chinese as the Father of Modern Ear Acupuncture) with traditional aspects of Chinese Medicine, allowing practitioners to discover highly effective, functional approaches that are not generally taught in TCM colleges.

Various diagnostic approaches are explored. These include palpation, observation and electrical detection of points. Emphasis is placed on a detailed description of Dr Nogier’s seminal discovery of the Vascular Autonomic Signal (VAS) and on techniques to easily identify it.  The VAS is usually reserved for practitioners of Auriculomedicine, an advanced development of Auriculotherapy, however, using the VAS is the ideal approach in Auriculotherapy to locate active auricular points and its intimate link between practitioner and patient significantly changes the dynamic of an Auriculotherapy treatment.  Also clearly explained are powerful protocols to address blockages to healing, the phases and auricular point hierarchy. Integrating these modern discoveries with TCM creates a powerful synergy and affords a deeper understanding of the European pathophysiological system of Auriculotherapy.

Additionally this practitioner’s guide lists the actions of significant auricular points from both the original French tradition and Chinese discoveries. It provides suggestions for addressing a range of conditions including a special section on the treatment of PTSD. Practitioners will discover ways to make Auriculotherapy a first-line stand-alone treatment and/or incorporate highly functional aspects of ear acupuncture to support a TCM body treatment.

The text is enhanced with a number of interesting anecdotes from the author’s clinical experiences and includes over a hundred detailed charts and illustrations in nineteen chapters. Auriculotherapy, Ear Acupuncture - The Practitioners Guide, fills a long awaited demand.
