Please help me by sharing this post to stop circulating a dangerous clothespin ear reflexology tip
As a professional Certified Reflexologist, I pride myself on my expertise and professionalism. I have helped thousands of people to find relief from various health issues using ear, hand, and foot reflexology methods in an ethical way. Just recently friends emailed me commenting that they saw an ear reflexology tip circulating around on various social media platforms stating that I had developed a method for pain relief by applying clothespins to the ears.
Please let me clarify that at no time did these companies approach me to ask for my permission to use my name, nor do I endorse this dangerous ear reflexology method. The method used is not only dangerous but it is inaccurate. First of all, each clothespin yields approximately 3-5 pounds of pressure, which can damage the thousands of nerve endings and can cause permanent damage to and in your ears.
In the HealthHack’s video, 6 clothespins are clipped to an ear, which is approximately 18-30 pounds of pressure on one ear! Can you imagine what that is doing to the nerve endings? If you watched the video, you notice that the model’s ears are quite red from excessive pinching.
The video also provided inaccurate reflex point locations for the back, shoulders, organs, digestive track, head and heart. To clarify any confusion, I have created a video correctly showing how to apply safely reflexology to the ears, and where the actual pressure points mentioned are located. Please use this video as a guideline, and disregard the inaccurate versions circulating on media on-sites such as LittleThings.com and HealthHacks.
