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 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.

Join Dr. Kazunori Itoh for a weekend seminar on pain management using advanced modern Japanese techniques including trigger point acupuncture, micro-current acupuncture, and moxa. Trigger points often develop out of acute or repetitive overuse of muscles, musculoskeletal imbalance, injury or other kind of strain. Focusing on trigger points is very effective for treating a wide variety of pain, including peripheral pain, spine mediated pain (which affects internal organs), and brain mediated pain (which can impact the entire body).

Dr. Itoh earned a bachelor’s degree in acupuncture and moxibustion from the Meiji University of Integrative Medicine, and went on to complete his doctorate at the same institution. After a stint as assistant lecturer in clinical acupuncture and moxibustion, he spent a year at the University of Toronto studying with Professor B. J. Sessle. He is currently associate professor in the Department of Clinical Acupuncture and Moxibustion at Meiji University of Integrative Medicine. His research specialty is muscular pain, and in 2004 he established an outpatient clinic for fibromyalgia sufferers. He is studying the use of acupuncture and moxibustion in the treatment of fibromyalgia, both clinically and as basic research.
