50% discount on pre-order of "Auricular Methods in Psychology"

Auricular methods are quickly gaining interest in the field of psychology owing to a more popular understanding of neuromodulation via the ear (see Psychology Today and BBC News). The physiology of the ear is unique in that it receives the major nerve branches and reflects every somatic and emotional experience as mapped by the brain in a highly detailed microsystem — the ear is a "window to the brain." The ear is the greatest tool every patient/client already brings to you. Learning to use ...

[VIDEO] An Ear for Manual Therapy: Stimulation Techniques for Tissue Release

The Poly- Nature of Our Neural States. Consider the nervous system (see video below), it has one primary function: to ensure the survival of our physical body. As Stephen Porges, researcher at the Kinsey Institute points out from his Polyvagal Theory, “When states of safety are manifest in the structures of the body, the body is poised to serve as a platform for healing.” Unfortunately, many clients/patients seeking improved wellbeing suffer chronic conditions of stress to such an effect that...

Owing to greater awareness of neuro-stimulation via the ear (as seen, for example, in Psychology Today, BBC News, and Psychiatry Advisor), Auricular methods for understanding and treating the body and mind are gaining interest from patients who seek improved wellbeing. The ear is unique in that it receives the major nerve branches. As introduced in the video below, it is a microsystem of the body which projects our somatic and emotional experiences.[1] This auricular microsystem has an extens...

As healthcare settings around the world use auricular methods to benefit patients, students seek a deeper understanding of auricular approaches through Auricular Medicine

As healthcare settings around the world use auricular methods to benefit patients, students seek a deeper understanding of auricular approaches through Auricular Medicine

Treatment of the human system via the ear (whether by acupuncture, ear press seeds, Low Level Laser Therapy or electro-stimulation) offers access to detailed projections of the entire Central Nervous System. Auricular methods are applied in medical practices worldwide and recognized by the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA), the World Health Organization (WHO), and other institutional bodies. Even a very shortlist of examples shows the breadth of healthcare settings in ...

CIAM’s highly endorsed core curriculum is helping lead the understanding of auricular methods for powerful insights into the human system.

The Core Curriculum Path

Enrollment Options

  1. Non-core Enrollment: Participation in courses beyond the core curriculum path. CIAM offers additional courses (seminars, workshops, demonstrations and networking opportunities) ideal for individuals who want to get their feet wet prior to advancing to the core curriculum, or those who are interested in extending their opportunities beyond the core curriculum.
  2. Core Curriculum Enrollment: Single registration in core curriculum courses on a one-by-one basis (paying as you go)
  3. Full Program Enrollment: Join us in the Complete Masters Certificate Program (CMCP) which offers significant savings for the complete core curriculum program — plus additional trainings beyond the core curriculum including Vascular Autonomic Signal skills building and Lower Level Laser Therapy foundations.
  4. Enrollment for Certification: Your education with CIAM does not require that you become certified, however you have the opportunity to earn certification at any point (as long as certification requirements have been met). Enrollment in the CMCP automatically gives you the option to get certified (see certification FAQs).

Integrate Auricular!

An auricular approach can offer powerful insight into what ails the entire body. CIAM graduates are using auricular insights to prioritize treatment approaches and break through the walls presented by their most challenging cases. Auricular Medicine, because of its basis in neurology- and frequency-based concepts, supports insight for treatment options in challenging cases such as therapy resistant patients.

Current and ongoing research in neuroscience, vagus nerve stimulation, heart rate variability as a critical biomarker, neuro-auricular acupuncture, medical frequencies (i.e. electromagnetic waves, frequency-specific micro currents, pulsed low level laser) is proving auricular medicine as a growth field — and continuously advances the field.
