Dr. med. Frank Bahr is founder of the German Academy of Acupuncture ( which fully endorses, however is unaffiliated with, CIAM). As a former student and colleague of the late physician, Paul Nogier, Bahr has been a direct line between the origins and the modern development of Auricular Medicine. He has helped introduce and advance many concepts in the field. His leadership lies squarely in the field of German Auricular Medicine with contributions through his clinical work, international speaking engagements, education and research. His publications, together with leading colleagues in the field, include The Comprehensive Book of Ear Acupuncture, and the Comprehensive Book of Classical Acupuncture (both available in German from Karl Blum).
As an authority on therapeutic frequencies, Dr. Bahr has collaborated closely with the German medical laser manufacturer RJ Laser. His therapeutic BAHR frequencies can be found on these and other medical equipment devices — introduction to which can be found in his textbook co-authored with Gerhard Litscher, Laser Acupuncture and Innovative Laser Medicine (available from CIAM).
