Brooklyn, NY (PressExposure) September 29, 2009 -- By identifying these nerve endings in the external ear and stimulating them by massage and cauterization, it is possible to produce therapeutic effects on those parts of the body which are prone to diseases. This technique is now proved to produce immediate results in weight loss treatments also.
Auricular medicine originated in China and has since then been developed in Europe to attain its present state. The treatment uses our external ear for analyzing and treating problems associated with different parts of the body. After years of careful observation, Chinese medical workers have charted more than 200 sites on the ear associated with various diseases.
The technique applied in achieving weight loss with auricular therapy is that it is possible to tap messages sent by the brain to the body demanding it to take more food, which results in excessive intake of food. By effectively blocking these messages, it is possible to prevent the excessive craving for food, which is one of the main causes for overweight. It is this unique bio-energetic and biomechanical treatment approach with auricular therapy, which plays a key role in effective weight loss.
The treatment is similar to acupuncture, which applies pressure to special points in the patientâs body with needles, but the difference is that here in auricular therapy, no needles are used. Instead mild electrical stimulation is applied at multiple acupuncture points. For the treatment to be fully effective, the patient should observe a controlled calorie diet along with increased physical activity.
Having its roots in the acupuncture system of treatment and research, auricular therapy can be called the âwesternizationâ of the Chinese treatment of acupuncture. The benefit of auricular therapy in treating weight loss is that the treatment has no side-effects and most patients experience instant weight loss with one or two treatments. The therapy also helps in getting increased energy and reversing the effects of premature ageing.
