What is German Auricular Medicine?
A system of Auricular Acupuncture – acupuncture of the outer ear – that stands apart as a healing therapy because of its unparalleled precision, clinical effectiveness and its ability to find and clear otherwise undetectable blockages to healing. Endorsed and practiced by thousands of European medical practitioners, German Auricular Medicine brings profound results and can be integrated into any clinical practice.
Auricular Acupuncture was discovered and developed by Dr. Paul Nogier of France during the 1950s to 1980s. He discovered that the Ear tells the story of what is happening in the whole human system at any point in time! As a microsystem projection of the brain, the ear provides a precise map that is visible, accessible and diagnostic! Even conditions related to internal scars, or the central nervous system, conditions that would otherwise demand invasive procedures, are available here for assessment and treatment.
German Auricular Medicine, as taught by the Canadian Institute of Auricular Medicine, is the only full training in the English language in the world that follows the curriculum of the German Academy of Auricular Medicine. Developed by Dr. Frank Bahr, a student and colleague of Paul Nogier, along with recent breakthroughs in hidden blockages to healing achieved by Dr. Beate Strittmatter, our training program brings an advanced medicine into clinical health practices in North America.
In our training, practitioners learn to use the Nogier Pulse (or the VAS) for assessment. A diagnostic tool, this method of feeling the pulse accesses the subtle sympathetic response to new information, providing specific answers to what is important in each patient’s return to health. With the Nogier Pulse, you can zero in on the source of the problem as well as the causal chain.
Treatments can effectively be provided with needles, electrotherapy, seeds or laser therapy.
German Auricular Medicine, a non-invasive assessment and treatment modality that is free of side effects brings remarkable results for most conditions, including: chronic pain, neurological and hormonal conditions, migraines, insomnia, stress, depression, and irritable bowel or bladder.
