How does Auriculotherapy work ?

Specific points on the ear have been mapped for the treatment of specific problems. These points, when stimulated, often have positive effects on the target are of the body.





What should I expect ?

Dr Gallant will usually begin by inspecting certain points that may be related to your problem on one or both of your ears. The ears may be checked by visual inspection, palpation, or electrical testing. When therapeutically active points are located, they will be treated with one of several possible treatment methods, including electrical or laser stimulation, pressure, taping of a tack or seed to the skin, or insertion of very small acupuncture needles

Is it painful ?

Auriculotherapy is generally very comfortable. If Dr Gallant uses electrical stimulation, you may feel a mild electrical sensation. If a needle is used you may feel a small needle prick.

How quickly can I expect relief ?

Auriculotherapy often produces very rapid effects. Some treatments take effect immediately, while others are cumulative in nature, become increasingly effective with more treatments.
