• To review conditions under which ear acupuncture is either contraindicated or where caution should be used to prevent harm to the patient
As discussed in Chapter 4, the ear points, like the body acupuncture points, have a broad range of clinical application. Both can be used for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of human health disorders. However, according to clinical experience and classical theory, as with body acupuncture points, there are certain conditions under which ear acupuncture is either contraindicated or when caution should be used so that no harm is done to the patient.
Due to these possible serious complications, conditions of contraindication and caution are discussed first, prior to the ear modalities covered in Chapter 6. Thus, these potential dangers can be foremost in the practitioner’s mind in preparation for treatment.
