This report contains data of individuals who, over a period of four years, came to an acupuncture clinic seeking reduction in body weight. Auricular acupuncture, or placing two press needles in each ear, was used to assist subjects in reducing weight. Results of such an attempt were not very promising. Reasons for the difficulty in reducing weight through auriculopuncture are discussed.
