Ear Reflexology

In Massage and Self Care on December 9, 2010 at 8:17 pm

Auricular Ear Acupuncture is a micro-system of acupuncture that can be used to relax, relieve pain, and improve the functioning of our internal organs. While it is most effective when points are located exactly through charts and precision palpation, an overall ear massage can greatly benefit our health. By using your thumb and index finger, begin to rub the outer edge of your ear, also called the helix. Follow the helix down the ear until you reach your earlobe. Pull gently on your earlobe several times. Move above your ear lobe and begin to massage each of the remaining areas of your ear. The tragus, which is located just above your earlobe, is very helpful to activate the mind and relieve headaches.  To finish squeeze your ear with firm yet gentle pressure between your thumb and the inner edge of your curled index finger and give your ear a series of 9 circular rotations each direction, with enough pressure to feel like a firm tug.
