‘Beauty Lunch Breaks’ series continues and this week, it’s all about holistic healing …. beginning with your ears.
I’m very excited for ‘Auricular Acupuncture Treatment’ at the swanky 58 Lifestyle on South Molton Street, London.

‘Auricular Acupuncture Treatment’15-minute booster session offers a solution to calm the busy mind, body and soul. I’m more of a grab-and-go lunch-kind-of-business-women as my mission is to maximise my work week lunch hour with treatments that will re-boot and recharge to avoid sluggish afternoons.

‘Auricular Acupuncture Treatment’ 15-minute booster treatment led by Andre Zitcera, a Somatic Experienced Practitioner & Acupuncturist at Journey Malibu Treatment Centre. He started with applying earthly top notes include green Mandarin, Jasmin, geranium and coriander on my inner wrists.
The theory behind ear acupuncture is that the whole body can be mapped out on the ear so it is possible to treat the whole body just by inserting needles into points in your ears. This protocol focuses on five acupuncture points in the ear. These five points affect body functions and are concerned with cleansing the body.

I felt this release and sense of calmness. as Andre continued to insert the needles into each ear – the needles used are made of stainless steel, are sterile and disposable (they are used only once).
Continuing to breath in the all-natural balancing scents of aroma therapy oils, Andre talked me through auricular acupuncture points and thought to share the knowledge:
AURICULAR ACUPUNCTURE POINTS
SHEN MEN: Translated as “Spirit Gate”. This point serves to alleviate anxiety by creating a relaxing effect and balancing heart rate.
SYMPATHETIC: Relates to the emotional nervous system. This point helps to alleviate stress, diseases of the digestive system and aids the respiratory system.
LUNGS: Organ most abused by inhalants such as marijuana, cigarettes, etc. This point helps with breathing and balancing the life force.
LIVER: Responsible for detoxification and blood purification. This point helps with anger and overall confidence.
KIDNEY: Cleanses damage caused by drug and alcohol abuse. This point calms fears and removes insecurities and strengthens the nervous system.
And just like that – ‘Auricular Acupuncture Treatment’15-minute booster session was all over. I felt energised and ready to continue my afternoon.
While walking out of the quite halls of 58 Lifestyle Molton Street, my phone rang. I was obliged to answer as it was my 2pm scheduled conference call from Zurich. But this time, I was bright-eyed and ready to power through my conference call and the rest of my afternoon, with zero caffeine.
