This live 3-day on-site training hosted by the Chicago College of Oriental Medicine covers Level 1 and offers medical professionals an accelerated curriculum with a pain-management focused deep dive into Auricular Medicine.
Successful pain management while reducing the need for opioids — a 60% reduction by one study — is just one of the reasons for the use of auricular methods at leading medical institutions.[1-5] Other reasons for the evidence-based pain reduction that auricular methods support, include: cost reduction, access and efficiency, alignment with integrative approaches, and promise to provide a means for successful opioid tapering.[6-7]
