These points lie along the meridians which are energy pathways all along the body. In cosmetic acupuncture needles are inserted in meridians which carry energy and blood to the face tissues and bones. Some of these meridians lie on cheeks, forehead, ears, chin etc.

When needles are inserted in facial muscles, disrupted path of energy is cleared which enhances smooth flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients in the body. There is no pain but just a tingling sensation is felt when needles are inserted. This then helps in increasing the tone of muscles, tightens the loose skin, removes wrinkles and provides a healthy complexion to skin. If needles are inserted superficially then collagen fiber production is increased which provide elasticity to the skin. This elasticity make a person look younger and healthy. Moreover it also helps in reducing the pain in facial muscles by increasing the movement of stiff and tensed muscles.

Traditional Chinese medicine has always given us different and unique ways of treating a particular disease. These methods are natural, safe, painless and do not include any medication. In Chinese concept body is considered to maintain a fine balance with the environment through the exchange of energy. A positive energy always flow through the body and eliminates the negative one. The whole body system works for this exchange only to maintain balance. One such method is the auricular acupuncture.

Auricular acupuncture is a Chinese concept which focuses on the outer ear for the treatment. Auricle part of ear is considered as a whole system that controls major activities of ear as well as other body organs. Auricle or outer part of ear contains several acupuncture points that are connected to the whole body. Here superfine needles are inserted in these points, insertion causes stimulation of points which generate signals, signals reaches to brain which activates the concerned organ. This activation increases the functioning of that organ by increased muscle movement, blood circulation and release of toxins.

The working of the auricular acupuncture is based on the three theories:

Anatomical model: this states that location of the auricular points on the map can be considered as of inverted fetus. Whatever messages are transferred to the body parts again reaches back to auricle thus making it bidirectional movement.

Delta reflex: this says that stimulation of points in auricle causes stimulation in the concerned body part. This causes an increase in temperature of that part and similarly body part causes increase in temperature of auricle. They both work as lock and key where auricular point acts as key of the lock of body organs.

The meridian concept: this is accepted in the Chinese medication. It believes that energy flows through fixed energy pathways called meridians. Any blockage in this path is the root cause of any disease so stimulation of auricular points has therapeutic effect on the meridians.

The western world adopts the Chinese method and principles and comes up with the same techniques with few modifications in the form of improvements. Auricular acupuncture using needles is a Chinese based concept but now western world have developed it in the form of Auriculotherapy. Here advance technologies are used to stimulate these acupoints in the ear without using needles like laser, magnets, pressure pellets, electricity etc. it was developed by the French neurologist Paul Nogier.

The auricular acupuncture treatment has various therapeutic effects on the whole body as it contains acupoints connected to whole body. It balanced mental and emotional status by reducing anxiety, depression, stress and insomnia. Different types of physical pain like arthritis, back ache, headache, migraine, muscle tension are reduced with this. Its connectivity with the digestive and respiratory organs helps in treating indigestion, colitis, asthma, bronchitis, and constipation etc. besides these; it is very helpful in giving away the habit of smoking and drinking. It maintains a balance in menstrual periods in women.

For auricular acupuncture there is a special class of acupuncturist who are experts for the ear muscles. These acupuncturists have complete knowledge about the two hundred acupoints located in the outer ear. A precaution taken during this treatment is that needle should be inserted into the auditory canal that reaches to the inner ear. It may cause complete hearing damage to the person so one has to be very careful during this process. It is specifically done on the fleshy part of ear also known as ear pinna.
