Auricular Chromotherapy a novel technique in the treatment of psychological trauma

, : Auricular Chromotherapy a novel technique in the treatment of psychological trauma. Deutsche Zeitschrift für Akupunktur 55(4)

Ohr-Chromotherapie zeigt in der Behandlung psychologischer Traumata vielversprechende Ergebnisse. Mit ihrem relativ einfachen und schnell erlernbaren Verfahren sowie ihren guten Ergebnissen k nnte sie zu einem unverzichtbaren rztlichen Instrument werden. Allerdings ist der Wirkmechanismus noch nicht komplett entschl sselt. Diese Technik wurde von Dr. Daniel Asis und Dr. Frederico Zarragoicoechea (Argentinien), mit Unterst tzung von Dr. Jorge Boucinhas (Brasilien) und Dr. Rafa l Nogier (Frankreich), entwickelt. Sie fu t auf der Erregung und darauf folgenden Ausl schung von traumatischen Bildern und Emotionen, hnlich dem Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Dieser Artikel enth lt (i) die Entwicklungsschritte dieser Technik vor ihrer ersten Anwendung bei 30 Patienten in Santa F (Argentinien) [2], (ii) das Ergebnis der Therapie von 50 Patienten (41 Frauen, 9 M nner, Alter von 20 bis 60 Jahren) in S o Paulo (Brasilien) mit einer 92 %igen Erfolgsrate; (iii) einige berlegungen zu weiterer Forschung. Auricular Chromotherapy has been showing promising results in the treatment of psychological trauma. With its relatively easy and quick technical application and the good results produced, this procedure may be an indispensable tool for physicians. However, its mechanism of action is not yet completely understood. The technique was created by Dr. Daniel Asis and Dr. Frederico Zarragoicoechea (Argentina), with contribution of Dr. Jorge Boucinhas (Brazil) and Dr. Rafa l Nogier (France) and includes the arousal and vanishing of traumatic images and emotions similar to the Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) procedure [1]. This work mentions: (i) the steps followed before the first application in 30 patients in Santa F (Argentina) where the technique was created [2]; (ii) the results of 50 cases (41 women, 9 men, aged 20 to 60) seen in S o Paulo (Brazil) with a 92 % success rate; (iii) some possible lines of research for the future.
