Battlefield acupuncture is used by the military for rapid pain relief. This is one of the therapies I have introduced into my practice. Battlefield acupuncture was developed from a traditional therapy called auricular acupuncture. Col. Dr Richard Niemtzow named it battlefield acupuncture because it could be used on the battlefield when standardised western medications where not advisable or unavailable. Battlefield acupuncture has specific point combinations that are found to be effective for pain relief and addictions. Tiny gold semi-permanent needles are inserted in to specific points in the ear which stimulate the release of neurotransmitters.
If you are suffering with pain or addiction then this could be the therapy for you.
