Helen Chin Lui who is a certified reflexology’s explains that, “Each ear contains a complete reflex map of the body, rich with nerve endings and multiple connectors to the central nervous system.”
I can’t always do stretches in my office and I know for a fact that
doctors can’t help with minor soreness, but trying something as simple
as placing a clothespin on my ear might sound ridiculous but why not try
it if it works.
While doctor would never advise you to do this because their just
losing money from not prescribing medications, I will try this ear
method if it’s just with my fingers or by putting this funny clothespins
on my ear.
Each of these 6 different points on the ear is connected to
pain and soreness in a specific part of the body. By applying pressure
to each spot, you can relieve those aches.
Scroll through to find the part of the body that is ailing you!
The upper-most portion of the ear is directly connected to your back
and shoulders. Applying a clothespin for about a minute should go a long
way to reduce built-up tension. Try this several times a day to lessen
that back and shoulder pain.
The next spot down on the ear is the one that is connected to the
body’s organs. Obviously, if you have severe internal pain, you should
be seeing a doctor. But for minor internal tenderness or discomfort, use
a clothespin or your fingers on this spot. It may just give you the
internal relief you are looking for.
The upper-middle part of the ear is the part that is most closely
associated with pain and stiffness in the joints. Applying pressure with
a clothespin or your fingers can offer some much needed relief. Chronic
problems should necessitate a trip to the doctor, but why not try this
simple method first?
The lower middle of the ear is linked to your sinuses and also your
throat. When you’re looking for something to help with colds or sinus
infections, place pressure on this spot to remove tension. This pressure
point can also help with sore throats.
Right above the ear lobe is link to digestion. By applying pressure
to this area you can reduce digestion problem and stomach issues. If you
are a person that is constantly dealing with digestion problem and
discomfort this will definitely work for you.
The lowest place on the lobe is the spot that is connected with two
of the most important parts of the body: the head and the heart.
Applying pressure to the ear lobe can work to promote heart health and
to relieve unwanted pressure in the head. This method can be quite
effective in eliminating pressure headaches.
