A Brief History of GLEM

The GLEM (Groupe Lyonnais d'Études Médicales ) is the most important group in France for the teaching of auriculotherapy. It was founded by Paul Nogier MD and Magdeleine Frimat MD in 1965. At the beginning, GLEM was specialised in alternative medical techniques: acupuncture, homeopathy, vertebral manipulations, hypnosis. The group has expanded beyond Lyon since 1965. Many doctors come from other parts of France, from Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy and Spain to follow the teaching at GLEM. With the dedication of Paul Nogier, GLEM became the world center of auriculotherapy with famous teachers like Drs. René Bourdiol, René Kovacs, Prof. Pierre Rabischong, Prof. Jean Bossy, Prof. Paulo Previtera and Prof. Pierre Magnin.

In the seventies, many international seminars were organised by GLEM in France: Paris, Nice, Cannes and Monaco. In 1990, GLEM co-organised a working group with the World Health Organisation (WHO) on the standardisation of the nomenclature of ear acupuncture points.
In 1994, the GLEM organised the inaugural International Symposium of Auriculotherapy in Lyon and has since supported the following symposia:

1997: 2nd International Symposium of Auriculotherapy in Natal (Brazil).
2000: 3rd International Symposium of Auriculotherapy in Lyon.
2002: 4th International Symposium of Auriculotherapy in Puerto Rico.
2006: 5th International Symposium of Auriculotherapy in Lyon.
2009: 6th International Symposium of Auriculotherapy in Bologna ( Italy).
2012: 7th International Symposium of Auriculotherapy in Lyon.
2014: 8th International Symposium of Auriculotherapy in Maryland, USA.

Many books have been published on behalf of GLEM.
