Because reflex zones on the ear offer neurological insight into what ails the body, the ear is is the greatest tool every patient already brings you — if you know how to use it!

Window to the Brain

The auricular microsystem, in combination with auricular methods such as Auriculotherapy and Auricular Medicine, can offer powerful insight for prioritized treatment of what ails the entire body because of its basis in neurology. “The ear, the auricle, is a window to the brain, showing us a dynamic, current reflection of what is happening in the whole brain, making the structures and functions of the person visible and accessible to the trained practitioner.”[1]


The neural portal of the ear offers a bridge amongst modalities in part due to the scientific validation of neuromodulation techniques implemented from the outer ear.[2] No matter your area of practice, by integrating auricular you can identify and support interventions that stimulate energy homeostasis, or balance, thereby supporting an efficient healing process of the entire human system, as well as amplifying patient responsiveness to other healing modalities. 

Precision & Depth

Whether you are an acupuncturist, psychologist, manual or laser therapist, naturopath, or nurse practitioner, palpation of autonomic nervous system response via the Vascular Autonomic Signal supports insight and precision in all areas of practice. Health — in fact all of life — is the regulation of energy homeostasis.[3] With a strong basis in frequency-based medicine, the clinical methods of Auricular Medicine and Auriculotherapy offer a sophisticated framework of understanding that opens doors for patients otherwise considered untreatable.[4]

Examples of

  • Bodywork
  • Chiropractic
  • Cosmetology
  • Dentistry

  • Manual Therapy
  • Naturopathy
  • Nurse Practitioner
  • Osteopathy
  • Physiotherapy

  • Psychology
  • Quantum medicine (i.e. bio resonance, Oberon-related therapies, quantum bio-photon diagnostics)
  • Sound healing
  • Sports medicine
  • Veterinary
  • Yoga


Neuromodulation techniques by manually stimulating the outer ear support polyvagal regulation, resourcing and bi-lateral stimulation approaches found in today’s modern practice of somatic therapy, EMDR and more..

Manual Therapy

For bodyworkers, massage therapists, and physiotherapists, manipulation of the ear helps balance parasympathetic and sympathetic states to prime the autonomic nervous system for deep tissue release. For therapists using laser, CIAM offers endorsed LLLT training.


The use of meridians as reflected on the ear, the Governor Vessel as a personal timeline, the Vascular Autonomic Signal as the most sensitive point-finder you may ever know... auricular methods offer improved precision for greater efficiency in assessment, prioritization and treatment of patient complaints.[4]


Discover methods for enhancing adrenal function, testing and prioritizing remedies, and applying homeopathic therapies with a frequency-based understanding that bridges traditions of German Homeopathy with new research in Bioenergetic Medicine. 


The problem is common in daily practice, some patients seem to be resistant to treatment despite all diagnostic and therapeutic efforts — the symptoms have become chronic. By identifying blockages to healing, auricular methods offer new approaches for hard-to-treat cases.[5]


Nurse practitioners can find support through improved efficiency in healthcare approaches. For example, through the use of invaluable assessment techniques such as the palpation of autonomic nervous system response for deeper understanding of mind and body.

The teeth truly reflect health. As the end points of our meridians, the location of amalgam and other toxicities, and connection to our nervous system, dental considerations are a critical component found in auricular assessments and treatments — with insights offering significant clinical value to the field of dentistry.


Expand on your applied kinesiology (AK) or manual muscle testing (MMT) by removing frontal cortex involvement from the equation to increase precision in the assessment of structural, muscular, chemical, and mental ailments.


Functional subluxations are easily linked to emotional and somatic aspects for systemic support.
