What Is Auricular Acupuncture?
Auricular acupuncture is a type of acupuncture that stimulates external points on the ear. This treatment has many health benefits, including improved heart health. Dr. Elain uses acupuncture in conjunction with nerve block and trigger point injection therapy for the treatment of pain and non-pain disorders.
