As with the hands and feet, the whole body is imprinted on the ears. The ear acupuncture needles I use are especially designed to use for points on the ear so they are gentle.
The points are especially good for things that are triggered by stress.
Since most of our ailments and conditions are related to the stresses that each of us carries, the ear points are very helpful.
Another reason to use ear acupuncture is that as the ears are close to and on either side of the brain, the reflex points on the ears facilitate the calming of the brain and desensitizing the emotions. Once the brain is disengaged from the here and now, the stress can be released.
