The importance of Global Methods, Applications, and Perspectives in Auricular Acupuncture 

Keep pace with neuroscience

Acupuncture is ideal for addressing the neurobiology of healing — especially via the ear, owing to the unique innervation of the auricular microsystem, which reflects all tissue layers (endodermal, mesodermal, and ectodermal). Practitioners who use the ear as a bi-directional neural platform — to read ‘neural outputs’ about assessment priorities, and to apply ‘neural inputs’ in support of improved treatment outcomes.

Increase accuracy
and precision

Improved assessment and treatment rely on a critical understanding of point activity. And, point finding accuracy and precision are key. The skills taught at CIAM enable mastery.
  • Guides in point localizations specific to German Auricular Medicine as well as other internationally used ear maps
  • Effective categorization of points (gold, silver, anatomical, functional, etc)
  • Use of the Vascular Autonomic Signal (VAS) palpation technique to assess autonomic nervous system (ANS) responses
  • Critical understanding of active points and electrodermal activity (EDA) as a dynamic reflection of specific pathology
