International Handbook of Ear Reflex Points

This text presents the essential clinical data of auriculotherapy in a multinational edition designed to encourage an international understanding of this innovative clinical procedure. Not only have the auricular points of Dr. Nogier and those of Chinese auriculotherapists been compared, Dr. Oleson has also drawn upon his own research at the UCLA Pain Management Center. His naming system assigns each auriculopoint a unique number, an indication of whether it belongs to the Nogier or Chinese map, and a name corresponding to the body part with which it is associated. All points are listed in nine languages: English, Chinese, Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Russian and Persian. Points are also presented by application with point associations for seventeen auricular microsystems.
