Marshmallow Shows How Clothespin Ear Reflexology Can Damage Nerve Endings


Helen Chin Lui is a Certified Reflexologist and the owner of the Healing Place in Medfield, MA USA. Her name was used in the Health Hacks and Little Things’ videos without her knowledge or approval, stating that she developed an unsafe clothespin ear reflexology method. This is NOT true.

In the Health Hacks video, six 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 that video, you notice that the model’s ears are quite red from excessive pinching.

Their video also provided inaccurate reflex point locations for the back, shoulders, organs, digestive tract, head, and heart.

To clarify any confusion, I have created a video correctly showing how to safely apply reflexology to the ears, and where the actual pressure points are located. Please use this video as a guideline, and disregard the inaccurate versions circulating on media on sites.

To further make a point I made another video to demonstrate how clothespins can damage the nerve endings by using a marshmallow as an earlobe. The video is  funny, informative and makes you think all at the same time.



Since creating this video on January 11, 2017 the video has researched more than 20,000+ people and shared by many. I am so glad to be of service and it is my hopes, it will prevent someone from getting serious injured from this unsafe method.

I appreciate if you can help me by sharing this information. Thank you.
