Ear acupuncture is often used to treat a wide range of symptoms. For centuries it has proved effective against all kinds of addiction problems (such as stopping smoking), but also for severe mood swings, obesity, general pain, etc.
Again, this technique is based upon a holistic approach, in which specific points of the ear represent the whole body and the human being in all its aspects: spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental. Modern studies have shown that puncturing the ears stimulates endorphin production, which give a general feeling of wellbeing.
