UPDATE March 19, 2017

Dear Friends and Colleagues

Welcome to the GLEM inspired Singapore Symposium! The 9th International Symposium on Auriculotherapy will be an amazing meeting !

We have all been fortunate to learn our auriculo skills from excellent lecturers over the years and this knowledge has grown exponentially all over the world !

The research findings, the applications of auriculotherapy is making its way into so many specialties in medicine from emergency rooms in hospitals, to trauma medicine, cardiology and to neonatal intensive care units and many more….in countries stretching from Canada, USA, Europe, China, Brazil, Mexico, Middle East, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia !!

Franca Deriu from Sassari will show how neurophysiology studies now link every network in the brain to the vagus and trigeminal nerves. The level of knowledge demonstrating the scientific evidence base for auriculotherapy is incredible. Her lecture alone is worth the visit.

Today, we have over 50 speakers submitting their abstracts for presentation.
There will be many worthwhile workshops to choose from.
The registration fees include substantial morning and afternoon teas.
The location of the Novotel Clarke Quay is central. Great for sightseeing!
The hotel rooms are modern, light and airy.
The MRT (underground fast train) is very easy to use.
The taxi fares are very affordable!
If you have not seen much of Asia, Singapore is a wonderful starting point for a short holiday during your summer vacation time.

Come to Singapore, do some work and add on a little holiday time!
A once in a lifetime opportunity, don’t miss it!

I look forward to seeing you there!

Warm regards

UPDATE FEB 27

Profs Baixiao Zhao and Rong Peijing are leading the delegation from China!
Latest auricular basic science and clinical research from China from auricular acupuncture for depression, auricular acupuncture mechanisms in the regulation of impaired glucose tolerance, to the use of auricular acupuncture in pain and motor rehabilitation after ischaemic stroke are of major importance in medicine today. (Please refer to the list for the China delegation details.)

Prof David Alimi from the University of Pittsburgh USA, and also Emeritus Professor from University of Paris, France, presents his innovative technique using cryotherapy as the modality for auriculotherapy treatments.

Dr. Gary Stanton, neurologist from Boston will reveal the relevance of auriculotherapy (AT) in treating neurology patients today as well as share his knowledge on the use of AT in sleep medicine. Sleep disturbances are common in our over busy lives and lead to multiple psycho-neuro-endocrine-immunological (PNEI) dysfunctions.

Dr Chantal Vulliez, somatologist and well known dental, head and neck expert clinician from Lyon, France will present an in depth lecture and workshop on how auriculotherapy is helpful in the diagnosis and treatment of clinical problems.

Dr. Jacque Chelly, anaesthesiologist from the USA, presents his work on using auriculotherapy in peri-operative care.

A/Prof. JuLee Oei, neonatologist, RHW, UNSW, Australia and her team for the MAGNIFIC protocol (auriculotherapy in Neonatal Intensive Care NICU) have successfully reduced pain and suffering in neonates in NICU. The project is in the process of becoming multicentered internationally.

Dr Andrew Jan, emergency room physician uses Battlefield Acupuncture in the Emergency Room in Perth, Australia. The technique reduces central pain in patients, reduces the analgesia load and has the potential to not only reduce adverse effects, the potential to produce health costs savings for the community and Medicare.

Dr Michael Weber, Germany presents auriculotherapy for atrial fibrillation.
Dr. Claire Marie Rangon, paediatric neurologist (Paris) presents auriculotherapy in neurodevelopmental disorders. Highly relevant today.

Prof Gerhard Litscher from the Integrative Medicine Research Unit, University of Graz discusses the innovation research in auriculotherapy today.

Dr. Franca Deriu, University of Sassari, Sardinia, Italy, neurophysiologist, presents the connectivity from the auricular branches of cranial nerves 5 and 10 to the PNEI systems at the brain level. An excellent communicator!

Prof Frank Bahr, Germany is famous for his “extension medicine “ in auriculomedicine. In Singapore he speaks on mind-body-spirit and the auricle.
as well as presents his auriculo-mapping nomenclature in the discussion on this important topic. Not to be missed.

Dr Richard Niemtzow, Andrews Airbase, architect of the Battlefield Acupuncture protocol (BFA) in pain management will present the correct techniques and applications for BFA. He will be sharing the outcomes of the USD$5.4M Department of Defence research project. A major report.

Dr Alexandre Yoshizumi’s (Sao Paolo, Brazil) outstanding work on auriculotherapy and chromotherapy in post traumatic stress is extremely important in today’s mental health strategies. Its effectiveness is remarkable and needs to be seen. Worth the trip just to learn this strategy!!

Dr. Raphael Nogier (cautery, VAS), Prof Steven Aung (diagnosis and therapeutics), Dr Terry Oleson (essentials and nomenclature) will share their extensive knowledge at both lectures and workshops with the delegates.

Please take action:
Many, many more interesting topics by excellent speakers from all over the world will be presented at the symposium. Please regularly check the website!
The programme will be finalized 4 weeks before the symposium.
Please register and book your accommodation soon. Both can be done on the website. Direct payment of registration fees by international bank transfer is also available.
