January 11 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
In this 8 hour workshop, Christine Tarradelles DAIM, L.Ac, will revisit the material covered in her 4 hour Auriculotherapy course, but in greater depth. The first part of the course will cover the nature of Ear Points with the history of Dr. Paul Nogier. The various ear points will be explored and distinguished: painful point (nervous system, reflex) with the pressure probe detector and the points of lower cutaneous electrical resistance (neuro-humeral) using electrical detection of the points and the VAS (Vascular Autonomic Signal) with radial pulse detection. Dr. Tarradelles will discuss the scientific research on the effectiveness of Auriculotherapy and the applications of the Vascular Autonomic Sign which indicates the change in the amplitude and dimension of the pulse when certain points of the ear are stimulated.
In the second part of the course, attendees will be trained in identifying the different blockages to treatment as: cerebral- laterality – symmetry disorders- first Rib Syndrome – dental Foci – toxic scars – Allergies – PTSD – administer ear acupuncture for a number of skeletal, internal organ and endocrine conditions. Attendees will also learn which needles are more efficient on the ear than the body.
In the third part of the course, demonstration of the auriculotherapy protocol will be presented and the students will be able to practice on each other. In conclusion, the future of Auriculotherapy will be discussed.
