An ancient technique that dates back almost 3,000 years ago, ear reflex points, or auricular therapy, is a fantastic way to relieve pain without invasive medical treatments. At ACT Wellness Center in Woodbridge, VA, Dr. Carmelo Caratozzolo does more than treat symptoms but also empowers patients to take charge of their own care for long-term health and wellness.
How Does Ear Reflex Points Work?
Your ears are full of nerve endings that connect to the brain. Each part of your body corresponds with different pressure points on the outer ear. At ACT Wellness Center, your trusted chiropractor will stimulate different reflex points on the ear to influence a medical condition or organ of the body, releasing endorphins. These endorphins block pain receptors and release feelings of pleasure.
What Issues Can Ear Reflex Points Treat?
Stimulating different points of the ear treats almost 2,000 disorders and illnesses in the body a person may suffer from. These include chronic pain, arthritis, stress, anxiety, hypertension, nausea, muscle spasm, and toxin buildup. Through stimulation of these ear reflex points, your stiff muscles will relax and your pain will considerably reduce to a tolerable level.
It’s important to remember that ear reflex points are not meant to replace chiropractic adjustments. Your Woodridge, VA chiropractor believes these two therapies complement each other and their combination promotes optimal levels of healing.
