Ear Acupuncture treatments by Tom Etter, AcupuncturistEar Acupuncture

More than 100 Acupoints can't be wrong!


Ear Acupuncture is a 'not as well known' modality of traditional acupuncture - but it is often very effective in treating a variety of painful conditions.

The ear has more than one hundred Acupoints which relate to the various organ systems and parts of the body, and is an effective method of treatment for many conditions.

Why The Ear Is Special

During fetal development the first structures to develop are the brain and spinal cord.

  1. The ancient Chinese viewed the ear as resembling an upside down fetus with all the body parts proportionately arranged on the ear.
  2. Ear acupuncture may use needles, electrical stimulation, or a combination of both.
  3. In relation to the ear, electrical acupuncture is the most comfortable and least invasive method of acupuncture for those apprehensive about needles.

The cost for a full acupuncture treatment is $39. The first session generally lasts up to 45 minutes with subsequent visits lasting about 30-35 minutes.

Patients are encouraged to bring or wear clothing that allows access to the maximum number of acupuncture points, a pair of jogging shorts for men, and a tank top or sports bra and shorts for female patients.

How many treatments are needed?

The number of treatments varies with different conditions and patients. Chronic problems generally require more treatments than acute problems. Chronic problems often require 5-10 treatments, where acute problems may be treated in five or less visits. Some patients may notice immediate improvement. However, some may not feel improvement until seven to ten visits. A certain number of patients may even show maximum improvement three months post treatment.
