Auricular pressure uses pressure on selected auricular points with a detection probe to achieve therapeutic results. It has been found in clinical practice that there is immediate improvement in symptoms in some cases when tender points on the auricle are located and pressed with the detection probe during the diagnostic process. For instance, pain, nausea and vomitting may be relieved or stopped as soon as the associated points are pressed. This method can activate meridians and collaterals, regulate the qi and blood, and calm the mind, so it is suitable for treating pain, chronic illness, injury of the soft tissues and neurosis.
