Ear Acupuncture: A Precise Pocket Atlas Based on the Works of Nogier/Bahr

Ear Acupuncture: A Precise Pocket Atlas Based on the Works of Nogier/Bahr Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A novelty to the international market both in concept and realization, this pocket atlas allows the reader to both effectively learn and quickly reference ear acupuncture points. Clear, simple images accompany concise and "to-the-point" texts creating an educational tool for the localization of ear acupuncture points.

The resourcefulness of the book is increased by the inclusion of the projection of the body meridians onto the auricle according to Bahr. Besides, "prescriptions" of point combinations according to some indications are included.

The reader will profit from the extensive international teaching experience of Beate Strittmatter. Through her former teacher, Frank Bahr, who cooperated directly with Dr.Paul Nogier, she stands in the direct tradition of the founder of Western auriculotherapy.

Book News Annotation:

Apparently Hippocrates was onto something when he treated impotence by bloodletting at the ear, as did Bosch when he showed Satan needling the Libido Point of the ear of a sinner. Strittmatter, a practitioner and chief instructor at the German Academy of Acupuncture gives a little history but a lot of practical advice on how to perform ear acupuncture, in which gold, silver, and even permanent needles are inserted in points on the auricle corresponding to other areas in the body. She describes these points as they correspond to the motor system, internal organs, structures of the head and nervous system, and functions such as the endocrine system. Strittmatter also describes indications and auxiliary lines that relate to treatment for such conditions as anxiety, aggression, and addictions to barbiturates, caffeine, and nicotine. The volume includes over 300 illustrations.
