Auriculotherapy at the hvna

Auriculotherapy is a treatment method with a range of indication areas in which the external ear is used as an input medium for therapy-specific diagnostics and treatment. On the external ear a representation of other body parts is found. It is therefore a microsystem therapy, just like, for example, hand and foot reflexology, but much faster and more profound in terms of effect. 

In the AUR-SI training you will become acquainted with the world of ear acupuncture: historical development and the current international context. The model of action is explained on the basis of embryological, neuro-anatomical and physiological backgrounds of auriculotherapy. 

This training is intended for professionals who work as doctors or (physio)therapists in regular or complementary healthcare. This therapy is now easily applied by qualified students. It has proven to be a very valuable and practically applicable tool for healthcare professionals in all these sectors in addition to their own arsenal.

The AUR-SI training costs €1.642. The training includes:

  • an extensive syllabus;
  • practice material;
  • coffee/tea and lunches on all days.

You will receive an invoice by e-mail.

It is possible to pay the costs in two installments at € 821 (administration costs € 60,-): once in September and once in March. Also in this situation you will receive an invoice by e-mail.

Partly because of the intimate relationship between the microsystem of the auricle and embryology, several days are classified according to embryological origin of the different organ systems. The AUR-SI training consists of 10 training days on the following Fridays:

  • 13th September
  • 18th October
  • 15th November
  • 6th December
  • 3th January
  • 14th February
  • 21th March
  • 11th April
  • 9th May
  • 13th June


Auriculotherapy has at least one strong scientific aspect: on the basis of anamnesis and physical examination you can reason out what you will expect to find in therapy-specific research that you expect to find. It will be reproducible by others, which ear tips you expect to find. And after treatment of these tips often the previously found objective phenomena will have disappeared again. Interventions are therefore often predictable, objectifiable, controllable and reproducible.

    The course, given by Toine Korthout (doctor, acupuncturist and pdb-hbo certified teacher), is interactive in design. In addition to the necessary theory, there is room for a lot of practical exercise: on silicone ears and on the ears of fellow students. Besides, exercise and application of the VAS will be taugt. At the end of the course, you will have a range of different treatment strategies.

    Auriculotherapy is popular not only for its clear embryological, neuroanatomical and neurophysiological approach, but also for its accurate and simple applicability. “Auriculo” often uses punctures (and is then called ‘ear acupuncture’). It is also known for manual and other stimulations and these are central to this training program.
