Ear Reflexology Support Your Health
Ear Reflexology or Auricular Therapy is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Like hand reflexology, ear reflexology can be applied quickly and easily in situations where foot reflexology may not be suitable, or if health conditions do not permit it.
Reflexology is the ancient art of healing. It can be used in conjunction with conventional treatment to obtain relief from a variety of conditions – from general stress to specific disorders. This gentle and non-invasive healing art originated in Chinese and Egyptian medicine more than 5,000 years ago.
Each Ear Contains a Complete Reflexology Map
The ears are nerve endings and multiple connectors to the central nervous system. Ear Reflexology is based on zones and points in the ears which relate to energy centers known as meridians. The shape of the body is projected into the ear. The head is located in the ear lobe while the legs are located at the opposite end. Where most people have their ears pierced, this is the eye reflex point.
Give Yourself an Ear Reflexology Treatment
You can give yourself a mini relaxation ear reflexology session. With your fingertips, gently but firmly massage both ears simultaneously. Here are the steps, starting from the outside edge of the ear working towards the center –
Start from the top of the ear – with your index finger on top of the ear and thumb below, gently rub the outer ridge of the ear from the top of the ear to the ear lobes. Repeat step for 2 – 3 minutes.
Inner ear ridge -With your index finger, rub the inner ear ridge from the top towards the earlobe. Repeat for 2 – 3 minutes.
Inside the ear – Now insert your index finger inside of the ear (not down the ear canal) and gently rub in a sweeping motion starting from the center of the ear to the outer edge. Repeat for 2 – 3 minutes.
Ear Lobe – With your index finger and your thumb, gently massage each ear lobe from one end to the other. Repeat for 2 – 3 minutes. You may also gently pull the ears from different angles to encourage blood flow for 2 – 3 minutes.
How Long to do an Ear Reflexology Treatment?
Depending on how much time you have, you may massage as little as ten minutes or as long as a half-hour. This procedure can be done daily and is extremely relaxing. Ear reflexology can help some people with migraine headaches, attention problems, pain relief, clearing infections, lowering blood pressure, and balancing hormones.
