This book concentrates on the basics of ear acupuncture: how to diagnose by examining the ear, finding the active points, and treating according to the principles of auricular therapy. Both a manual and a reference work, the contents cover history, a review of basic TCM theory, explanatory models for acupuncture effectiveness, anatomy and point location on the ear, functional points, equipment for therapy, ear examination, methods of ear acupuncture, and treatment protocols for a variety of conditions ranging from pain, dermatological conditions, and blood circulation problems to neurological, gynecological, and psychological symptoms. A separate chapter on NADA thoroughly explicates this simple and highly useful technique.
