Instruction by Muriel Agnes, Dave Maybee and Paul Maybee
The Ear Point Guide features several of CIAM’s top instructors including instructor emeritus, Dr. Muriel Agnes (founder of CIAM pictured here) presenting on auricular needling techniques.
Dave Maybee, RMT | Lead Instructor:Dave Maybee is director at the Canadian Institute for Auricular Medicine and has taught over 35 certificate-level continuing education courses in German Auricular Medicine as based on the work of Dr. med. Frank Bahr and Dr. med. Beate Strittmatter. Dave is also a practicing massage therapist. His practice, started 2008, integrates cranial sacral therapy and myofascial release with auricular medicine to treat unresolved chronic pain and other issues found in therapy resistant patients (e.g. hard to treat patients who have “tried everything”).
Paul Maybee | Instructor:Paul Maybee is a former instructor and administrator for CIAM, and former executive director of Kingfischer Distributing, positions from which he brings his experience in Auricular Medicine clinical equipment sales and practitioner education to bear for the Ear Point Guide.
Muriel Agnes, MAEd, PhD | Instructor Emeritus:Muriel Agnes is the founder, and former director, of the Vital Principle Institute — now known as the Canadian Institute of Auricular Medicine (CIAM). Muriel began in this field by studying other schools of auricular acupuncture in 1999. She completed a PhD in Energy Medicine under the supervision of Dr. Norm Shealy. Her doctorate work focused on the assessment accuracy of Vascular Autonomic Signal (VAS) pulse palpation (also known as the Reflex-Auriculo Cardiac) discovered by Dr. Paul Nogier.
Muriel has had the privilege of being mentored in the German system of Auricular Medicine by Dr. Beate Strittmatter and Dr. Peter Gross — going on to invite Dr. Strittmatter to Canada in 2003 to teach health professionals. This became the basis for Muriel's development of curricula, rooted in her pedagogical training, to build the institution for which CIAM is now recognized by students from around the world for continuing education in the field of auricular acupuncture/auricular medicine. She is the author of Auricular Medicine: A Window to the Brain, a much sought after educational text in English providing context, tools and methods, and clinical applications of Auricular Medicine. Muriel also authored aclinical pain studyusing the Vascular Autonomic Signal (VAS) palpation as a guide for directing acupuncture needles to points for the relief of chronic pain.
