Auricular Acupuncture Diagnosis is valuable not only to the practising acupuncturist but to all medical practitioners. It is an extremely accurate means of interpretation of a patient's condition. Obtained quite simply through examination of the ear, diagnosis expediently offers the practitioner the possibility to choose the best approach to treatment. In this technological age, with so many sophisticated diagnostic tools at our disposal, it may seem overly simplistic to rely on basic procedures such as the inspection and palpation of the ear for diagnosis. However, all practitioners need to assess their patients personally, and the observation and examination of the ear can provide much valuable information which cannot be detected in other ways.
