Positioning of Patients in Auricular Acupuncture

| July 17, 2011 | 1 Comment | 217 views

Ear acupuncture can be administered in a sitting or a reclining position. I follow these general guidelines.

• If the ear is to be needled or bled, I have the patient lie down, as the manipulation of Qi and Blood can make the patient feel weak or faint.

• If more gentle modalities, such as pellets or seeds, are part of the “take-home” treatment, the therapy may be applied while the patient is sitting or reclining. The position depends upon what is comfortable to the patient or where the practitioner is in the treatment when the seeds are applied (i.e., at the beginning or the end of treatment).

The conditions for successful treatment of the patient can be achieved by proper positioning of patients as well as adherence to the prohibitions listed above.
