"The third edition of this well researched book provides a fascinating insight into the historical development of auriculotherapy. Olesen utilizes his neuroscience background to comprehensively describe the concepts and theories appertaining to the various microsystems within the discipline. Olesen brings together western neurophysiological concepts and oriental energetic concepts, both systems are treated as clinically valid and therapeutically useful. The work will be an invaluable reference source for all practitioners of auriculotherapy."

The oriental approach to medicine is that the body pretty well heals itself if it can be made aware of the problem, we think we can heal the body with medicines that point out what needs to be done, the Chinese have a huge pharmacopia of wild plants , but the aaproach to waking the bodies healing is My own revelation happened in 1979 and ive used it ever since to stop joint pain and discomfort, its still not widely accepted in our "enlightened" culture but should be. the brief coverage in Barefoot is simply eclipsed by this manual. its better organized has a clear concept and ability to specialize in it treatment, Auricular Accupuncture is actually accu pressure -its non invasive, not painful and should be in everyones prepper hoard.
Auriculotherapy Manual: Chinese and Western...is well worth the expense , its a great teaching tool that expands the uses of the totally non invasive therapy. It can be used alone or with the tiny sticky backed "seeds " that cover the spots, and it can be used with full blown Accupuncture with the needles, or my favorite electrotherapy pens. This book will expand the healing arts and anyone can use it, obviously you should have some qualifications and understand whats going on.... but its difficult to see how you can violate the first rule of medicine with accupressure centers on the ear...."First, do no harm"
Since ear acupuncture is so directly related to cerebral activity, if a patient presents a symptoms that I know the neurological connection to, I will often refer to this book to locate the area of the brain that correlates. It's often a pleasant surprise how effectively this works. If I ever lost this book, I'd replace it immediately.
The book is well written and tries to be as clear as possible. Don't let yourself be put off by the complexities of the subject.
The thing to do is learn well the anatomy of the ear so you can target the right areas of your body.
The results can be very surprising and exhilarating. An example is the disappearance of pain.
I did not use needles or electricity, only pressure with a finger, and was able to rid myself of an annoying and painful problem.
