Acupuncture, also known as auricular therapy, has been a traditional Eastern treatment for pain for thousands of years. Western medicine is just starting to catch up to the benefits of this therapy. Scientific study is showing success for using acupuncture to treat back and neck pain, migraines and arthritis.
This kind of holistic healing isn’t as weird as it seems…
Ear acupuncture is one modality of this type of treatment. This Saturday 3/10/18, Dr Levi Zimmerman, an anesthesiologist by traditional training and a certified acupuncturist, will be discussing auricular acupuncture and providing treatment.
The acupuncture seminar on March 10th was a great experience. We learned about the history of traditional and medical acupuncture then tried some ear darts and acupuncture needles in our ears and my lower back. I also learned that acupuncture works well for migraines in addition to neck and back pain.
