10 points of the lobe (P): points of the head and face . Dividing the lobe into sectors — in order to ﬁnd the points located on the lobe, the upper border of the lobe must be established. Mentally, or using the ear probe as a straight edge, draw a horizontal line across the lobe at the level of the lower border of the intertragic notch, which has a lip-like cartilaginous shape to it. It is from there that the horizontal line is drawn and the upper border of the lobe is created.
After locating the upper border of the lobe (see Figure 3.4), divide the lobe into equal thirds vertically and then equal thirds horizontally. This division can be done visually or using an ear probe as a straight edge. Nine sectors are then formed on the lobe (see Figure 3.5). These sectors are universally assigned numbers 1 through 9 as you read from left to right and top to bottom. The points are located in relation to these sectors. Most of these points are deﬁned as, “In the center of the _th sector.” For example, the Eye point is located in the center of the 5th sector.
11. Upper Teeth: Located slightly below the center of Sector 1.
12. Tongue: Located in the center of Sector 2.
13. Jaw: Located in the center of Sector 3.
14. Lower Teeth: Located in the center of Sector 4.
15. Eye: Located in the center of Sector 5.
16. Inner Ear: Located in the center of Sector 6.
17. Helix 5: Located on the lateral border of Sector 6.
18. Tonsil: Located in the center of Sector 8.
19. Helix 6: Located on the lower margin of Sector 8.
20. Insomnia: Located slightly medial to the teeth points (#11 and #14),on the horizontal line dividing the Upper Teeth (#11) and Lower Teeth points (#14).
