Ear Acupuncture for Sciatic Pain

Ear acupuncture is a method where points on the ear correspond to a specific part of the body, in a similar fashion to the reflexology points of the feet. Ear points may be stimulated during the treatment session or you may be sent home with an ear seed taped to the points to give additional benefit. To illustrate, inserting a needle into the ear’s sciatic point may provide temporary relief from sciatic pain. The point named Shen Men is often used to calm people presenting with anxiety.
