Auriculotherapy is a form of acupuncture based on the theory that the ear is a microsystem that reflects the entire body, including our muscles, skeletal structure, organs, and glands. Other structures such as the scalp, face, hands, feet and long bones of the body also follow this principle, but only the outer ear (auricle) is used in acupuncture. Small needles are inserted at corresponding anatomical zones in the outer ear.
