Staples and Auricular Acupuncture

| July 25, 2011 | 1 Comment | 188 views

Staplepuncture is a technique that was used in early studies on auriculotherapy. Sacks developed the staple acupuncture technique. With this modality, a surgical staple is placed in the ear, thus allowing for the puncture of two points. Sacks maintained that the staples could safely be retained in the ear for 2 weeks. This procedure is analogous to incisions and sutures in terms of its invasiveness and would be considered a surgical procedure today.
