Healing Spotlight: Auricular and Aromapoint Therapies

auricular therapy also known as ear acupuncture

Did you know that the ear is shaped like an upside down human fetus? (Imagine the head as the earlobe). Auricular therapy is commonly known as ear acupuncture, and different organs and systems of the body can be addressed by stimulating certain points on the ear. My acupuncturist places these tiny press balls on my ears to support the work we do in the session. So when I’m home, all I need to do is press on the points to stimulate the energy flowing through the meridians that we’re trying to boost.

AromaPoint therapy combines acupoints all over the body with essential oils for a similar but different effect. Shen Men is a very commonly used point on the ears (the upper middle press ball in the picture) that when combined with Bergamot essential oil has a wonderfully calming and balancing effect.

Check out my Instagram Story highlights for more on why I love Bergamot and how to use this magical combo. It’s great to try as an afternoon pick me up! I love teaching people how to incorporate essential oils into their lives to support their health goals, and I can help you figure out the best way to get started. So let’s talk! If you already know what you want to order, you can get that process started here.
