This Incredible Pain Relief Method Is As Simple As Putting A Clothespin On Your Ear

Prev1 of 3Next

Iam not the type of person who runs to the doctor every time I feel a little ache or pain. After all, aches and pains are a part of life.

Instead, I prefer to think I have a little more control over my own body, like when trying these pain relief stretches I can do without leaving my chair.

So when I saw this exclusive method for providing minor pain relief using my ears, I was obviously skeptical, but also curious.

Certified reflexologist Helen Chin Lui writes, “Each ear contains a complete reflex map of the body, rich with nerve endings and multiple connectors to the central nervous system.”

I can’t always do stretches in the middle of my office, and I know that the doctor can’t always help with minor soreness — but something as simple as putting a clothespin on my ear? Well, it sounds crazy, but it has to be worth a shot!

While this method should never take the place of medical advice, I will definitely be giving this ear reflexology method a try — whether with a clothespin or just my fingertips.

Each of these 6 different points on the ear is connected to pain and soreness in a specific part of the body. By applying pressure to each spot, you can relieve those aches.

The upper-most portion of the ear is directly connected to your back and shoulders. Applying a clothespin for about a minute should go a long way to reduce built-up tension. Try this several times a day to lessen that back and shoulder pain.

The next spot down on the ear is the one that is connected to the body’s organs. Obviously, if you have severe internal pain, you should be seeing a doctor. But for minor internal tenderness or discomfort, use a clothespin or your fingers on this spot. It may just give you the internal relief you are looking for.
