“I heard about German Auricular Medicine from a friend of mine who told me about a medical doctor in pain management who studied at the Canadian Institute of Auricular Medicine and started using auricular acupuncture in his practice with fantastic results for his patients. I have been using auricular points in my practice and I saw how powerful the medicine was. And, so I decided that maybe I'll learn something more from the source, the Canadian Institute [of Auricular Medicine].”

...to directly apply methods used in Auricular Medicine to support our work as psychologists. Through my own clinical and training work in the area of somatic psychology, I see great benefit in the transformation of emotional resistance by clearing somatic barriers. With its basis in the nervous system, Auricular Medicine offers insights and methods for clearing physiological and emotional blockages that should be applied in today's modern somatic psychology practice."

...for those patients wanting acupuncture. I love using auricular acupuncture with the Nogier Pulse, and have good results. For example last week, a patient came in with classic 'plum pit throat". I identified and treated 6 related points - and the patient had immediate relief! This is not an uncommon experience, and so rapid it fits well into my busy schedule."

With clients whose progress has plateaued, I check for blockages to healing such as scars, old injuries, hidden dental problems, pain memory accumulations, vitamin/mineral deficiencies and toxicities. For clients with multiple complex issues, I use the system to direct me to the most useful intervention. When injuries cannot be approached locally, they can be accessed via the ear. Patients appreciate the accuracy and results of this system."
