Treatment of ear points. In patients with a
shoulder tilt, 5 points on each ear were treated if discom-
fort was present at the point. The five points included the
following :
(1) A spinal-cord point in the spinal cord large area (Fig. 3)
(2) A cerebellar peduncle point (Fig. 4)
(3) Cerebellar formation point (Fig. 5)
(4) and (5) Vestibular nuclei points (2 points) (Fig. 6)

Once these five points are found, an Aiguilles Semi-
Permanentes (ASP) needle can be inserted in each point.
ASP needles are steel, semipermanent needles that last 3–5
days before they are pushed out to the surface of the skin.
ASPs are made in France also by Sedatelec and are Food
and Drug Administration–approved in the United States.
These points can also be treated by massage or electrical
stimulation. The current author and colleagues have used
electrical stimulation as a manual needling alternative in
this study.
