As human beings, we are going to deal with things like aches, pains, tiredness, it happens. However, this is not to say that we can’t use tricks to make things run a little more smoothly.
This clothespin method will benefit you in a large number of ways. We use this method on the ears because according to reflexologist Helen Chin Lui, both of our ears contain a complete reflex map of the body rich with nerve endings and connectors to the central nervous system. We need to target six specific spots on our ears in order to work with the specific organs associated with each spot.
1.The Upper Part of the Ear
This part of your ear is directly linked to your back and shoulders. If you apply pressure to this spot for about one to two minutes each day you will be able to effectively reduce tension in those areas that could be built up. Tension buildup causes a lot of pain.
2. The Top Of Your Ear’s Curve
This is connected to your organs. If you are dealing with any sort of tenderness or maybe even a stomach ache place a clothespin on this spot in order to give yourself some relief. Of course, if you’re dealing with a serious pain please see a doctor. This should only be used when dealing with minor discomfort.
3. The Upper-Middle Part of the Ear
This is the part of your ear that is linked with your joints. Applying pressure to this spot will relieve your joint pains or joint stiffness. This is especially beneficial for those who spend long days at the keyboard.
4. The Lower-Middle Part of the Ear
Applying pressure to this spot will bring relief to your throat and sinuses. If you are dealing with a stuffy nose or feeling congested you should try this. It will allow you to get a good night’s sleep.
5. Just Above The Earlobe
This spot is one that will help to reduce any digestive issues you may be having. You can use this as a means to prevent any sort of discomfort from issues related to digestion.
6. Your Earlobe
This last spot is my favorite, it is linked with your head and your heart. Applying pressure here will promote your heart health and relieve your headaches. I actually have tried this method and can tell you that it does work. I have successfully gotten rid of a minor headache using a clothespin!
