First in Switzerland… Health Center Clinique Lémana introduces needle-free acupuncture.
Auriculotherapy, or auricular acupuncture, is an alternative medicine that was rediscovered and developed in 1951 by Dr. Paul Nogier, a French physician and acupuncturist. In 1987, auriculotherapy was officially recognized by the World Health Organisation.
What is auriculotherapy?
The therapy is based on the direct stimulation of the nervous system by a puncture using acupuncture or semi-permanent needles.
Auriculotherapy is both a diagnostic tool and a therapeutic technique. Indeed, there is a representation of the different parts of the body and organs in the auricle. This study or mapping, also called somatotopy, is now well known. The ear is therefore both a dashboard on which we can observe and detect the various points that are out of order and a control zone allowing the treatment of these points in order to obtain a therapeutic action.
How effective is auriculotherapy?
The effectiveness of this method has been proven in cases of :
- Pain in the whole body: lumbago, sciatica, shoulder periarthritis, neck pain, migraines, arthrosis, neuralgia, including deep cancer pain;
- Manifestations of stress: unhappiness, anxiety, stress, anguish, depression… ;
- Symptoms of constipation ;
- Reduction of sleep disorders;
- Difficulty in quitting smoking or any other addiction.
- Pregnant women;
- Children under 7 years of age;
- People on anticoagulants, who must avoid needles;
- And more generally, whenever medical logic does not allow it.
The first clinic in Switzerland to offer needle-free and almost pain-free acupuncture…
Discovered in 2018 by Dr. David Alimi (University of Paris), cryo-auriculotherapy is an innovative technique of cold acupuncture, at the cutting edge of technology.
For better effectiveness, this innovative technique consists of replacing the acupuncture needles with cold (Cryo) and thus immediately freezing the tissues of the point that should be pricked, at a temperature of – 40°C.
“These Cryonic needles allow an auriculotherapy: bloodless, odourless, colourless, almost painless, without risks, etiopathogenic, eliminating the disadvantages of the needles, while preserving all their effectiveness, and authorizing techniques and innovative and more powerful auriculotherapeutic strategies”. Dr. D. Alimi.
