    While the majority of acupuncture and East Asian medicine practitioners in t he United States have favored body  acu-point treatment techniques, there is an increasing focus on the therap eutic effectivene ss of utilizing ear reflex points. Many in dividuals are surprised to learn that auriculotherapy can not only be just as clinically effective as body  acupuncture and /or acupressure, but also can relieve pain and tension much more rapidly than stimulation of the classical acupuncture meridians. Dr. Oleson combines dynamic lectures with practical hands-on experience. In this two-day seminar he presents important clinical procedures utilizing ear reflex points for the alleviation of pain, addiction, and stress- related disorders.
    Needles and/or seeds can be utilized.This seminar provides acupuncturists and Asian Bodywork Therapists with training in extremely effective clinical knowledge, enabling them to treat specific ear reflex points useful in relieving pain conditions, addictions, and stress-related disorders. Practical application of auricular diagnostic procedures used to discover the most relevant ear points for clinical treatment is comprehensively explored in this  workshop, allowing attendees to learn the most effective
    Chinese and European ear point s for successfully treating a variety of medical problems. Participants are provided fundamental knowledge of the somatotopic correspondence of the physical body to the inverted fetus pattern represented on the external ear. The historical, theoretical, and anatomical point locations of
    Chinese and European systems of auriculotherapy are presented. Specific auricular treatment plans for the relief of visceral, musculoskeletal, and neuropathic pain are described. Both didactic presentations and hands-on training facilitate a deeper understanding of the auriculotherapy practices that allow optimal integration of the microsystem
    of the ear with the macrosystem of the body. Attendance at the seminar assists practitioners in preparing for the Auriculotherapy Certification International (ACI) written and practicum exam, given Sunday evening after class. For further information about the requirements and registration
