What is the program about?
Our treatment is called "AURICULOTERAPHY," or treatment of the ear. We place a small magnet in
specific parts of the ear in order to use the meridian points of the body to control your hunger, your
stress, your cravings, increase you metabolism, etc. At the same time we give you a nutritional guide
wich you follow during the week. It is a weekly program.
Is it the same as acupuncture?
NO. Acupuncture uses very fine needles which penetrate the skin to stimulate the meridian points of the
whole body, with a duration of 10-15 minutes per session. Our treatment uses "acupressure" which
stimulates the SAME points (only the one located on the ear) superfitialy and without penetrating the
skin. Our magnets will stay on your ear with a small bandaid (skin color) which will stimulate the points to
help you during a period of 7-9 days at a time.
