Auricular acupuncture points are certain locations or areas on the ear that can be stimulated for certain effects such as relieving pain or inflammation. The stimulation can be from acupuncture needles or the pressure from certain seeds. The distribution of the auricular acupuncture points on the ear is similar to the position of a fetus with the head downwards and the buttocks upwards.

The auricular acupuncture points located in the ear lobe (i.e., the lower part of the ear) are associated with the head and facial regions of the human body. So these areas in the ears can be used to treat diseases in the head and facial regions. The auricular acupuncture points on the scapha and superior antihelix crus (i.e., the upper part of the ear) are associated with the limbs, and can be used for related diseases.

In addition, those auricular acupuncture points in the cavum and cymba concha (i.e., the middle part of the ear) are linked to the internal organs, and associated treatments can be made. Those auricular acupuncture points in the main part of antihelix (i.e., the middle part of the ear) are linked to the trunk and can be used for the relevant treatments.
