The stimulation of acupuncture points is one of the oldest and most widespread healing methods in the world. Punctures with needles at precisely defined points on the skin can eliminate or alleviate disturbances inside the body.
Ear acupuncture was discovered and developed about 50 years ago by the French physician Paul Nogier. The ear surface forms a reflex zone on which all organs of the body are mapped. The examination of these reflex zones allows a precise statement about where pain exists or which organs of the body are affected in case of unclear complaints.
The treatment is done by pricking acupuncture needles into the necessary points on the ear, if necessary also additionally on the body.

Duration of acupuncture treatment
Some patients experience immediate relief after acupuncture, others need days. Usually it takes 6-8 treatments at intervals of about 1 week to feel improvement. Sometimes even the symptoms worsen in the first days after acupuncture (so-called "healing crisis").
Acupuncture is an effective form of treatment, which - if performed by trained personnel - has no risks. However, acupuncture should always be performed exclusively in conjunction with clinical diagnostics, as only a physician can do.
Acupuncture treatment technique
The acupuncture needles are made of steel, silver or gold and are between 0.15 and 0.4mm thick. On the ear, depending on the need, permanent needles are also used, which can be left in the ear for several days.
An acupuncture treatment costs between 80.- to 120.- CHF depending on the effort and lasts between 30-45 minutes.
