I found an interesting article in Reflexology News about how Reflexology can help with the pain and frustration associated with Tinniutus. At least 10 percent of American adults suffer from Tinnitus, a condition that causes sufferers to hear constant phantom noises in the ears, which have been described as ringing, buzzing, whistling, hissing, clicking or whooshing. The noise may vary in intensity from a low background noise to a high pitched squeal, and may be in one or both ears. Occasionally the sound is so intense that it can interfere with the ability to concentrate or hear causing disruption that can be overbearing.
How does Reflexology help? Reflexology is a non invasive and gentle alternative medicine. By applying pressure to reflex points located on the feet, hands and ears, energy imbalance messages are sent to the brain. The brain recognizes these messages and then sends healing signals to that part of the body asking it to cooperate and start the healing process.
Each reflexology point corresponds with certain organs, glands and tissues in the body. By pressing firmly (not painfully) on these points the body recognizes where the imbalances are and starts the healing process. Many people have found tremendous relief from chronic pain and are grateful. The best part about it is that it only takes minutes to apply.
There are two Reflexology methods that you can try at home, Ear Reflexology and/or Foot Reflexology. You may combine both feet and ear methods or if you are not up to doing both, do the ear reflexology technique one day and the feet the next.
The feet and ears have thousands of nerve endings. In the feet the nerve endings for the ears are located under the second and third toes of each foot. Starting with the right foot, press firmly under these toes for 3 seconds, release and repeat again for two more times. Repeat on the left foot.
In the ears, the ear reflexology points are located on the right side of each ear lobe. Start with the right ear lobe, stroke from the top to the bottom of the right side ear lobe over and over for 3 seconds and do the same for left side of the left ear lobe.
