Subluxation Location


Auriculotherapy, also known as Cranial Nerve Augmentation, is often confused with ear acupuncture but it uses no needles, no acupuncture points & no meridians.  A micro-current stimulator is placed on neurological points that correspond to the various cranial nerves & cervical ganglia on the ear. These nerves then send a message to the brain based on the location of the area being diagnosed or treated. Therefore, Cranial Nerve Augmentation is considered mainstream clinical neurology.

Imagine your brain as a computer. Inside this computer is a "map" of the entire body. This map is neurologically projected onto the ear through the body’s nervous system. Accessing the points on the map is like using a computer’s keyboard or mouse to gain entrance into the system. With this system we are able to directly diagnose & treat a number of problems & conditions through the "brain's computer".
