Auricular therapy involves needles, beads or seeds that are applied to the ear to treat all manner of pain and illness, similar to acupuncture. Auricular therapy is a form of acupuncture or ear (auricular) reflexology and while it's not as powerful as acupuncture, it's an excellent add-on to help boost the results of acupuncture and keep pain and other symptoms under control until the next treatment.
For those afraid of needles, it's an effective alternative. The special needles or pressure beads or seeds, are worn for 2-10 days at a time, all ear seeds work on the same principle of providing acupressure on specific ear points.
Don't all acupuncturists know how to do auricular therapy?
To some degree, yes. However, most have minimal training and get mediocre results. Because this is such a remarkably effective therapy, Dr. Kerns and Maria have gone on to advanced training and between the two of them, have treated several thousand ears! Proper placement is the #1 key to effective ear seeding.
Auricular Therapy or Auriculotherapy is the stimulation of pressure points on the ear. Often described as reflexology for the ear, there are hundreds of points that represent a microsystem of the whole body, with points for areas both physical and emotional disorders.

ASP ear needles (semi-permanent needles) are made in France in 1978. They were designed by a French physician to stay in the ear for a length of time. Here in the USA, they tend to stay in for 3 to 4 days. In France, it is not uncommon for a doctor to leave them in for a month or more at a time. ASP needles are frequently used by the military in a type of auricular acupuncture referred to as Battlefield Acupuncture.
ASP ear needles come in gold, stainless steel, silver and titanium. The titanium needles are safe to leave in during an MRI or PET scan (we are out of stock currently). We have used these needles with great success for years, to reduce pain, migraines, PTSD, Anxiety and more in our patients. Our patients like that the needles get “reactivated” every time they touch them.
Fees - $45 Includes up to 12 ASP NEEDLES
