This woman shared her amazing experience all over the social networks – she managed to relieve various types of pain in her body using only a peg.
Reflexology is a medical branch which involves pressing certain points of the body. This method works especially fine on the ear area, because this part of the body has many nerve endings.
Using a peg you can pressure certain nerve endings, and thus eliminate unpleasant pain. Your ear is connected to every part of the body through 6 main points.
Ear reflexology origins can be found thousands of years ago in ancient Chinese acupuncture methodologies and perhaps even earlier in Egyptian practices. The following are a few basic points to help you relieve pain naturally:
1. Shoulders and back pain
Place a clothespin on the very top portion of your ear to provide a tremendous release in your back and shoulders.
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.
The upper, central part of your ear belongs to the joints. By pressing it with a peg you can relieve joint pain, regardless of whether it affects your wrists or ankles. In cases of chronic pain, consult your doctor immediately.
4. Sinuses and throat
The lower part of your ear is connected with the paranasal sinuses and throat. Pegs can do miracles when it comes to colds or initial phase of sinusitis.
Just above the lobe of the ear is a place most commonly associated with digestion. Using a clothespin to apply pressure can help relieve digestive issues and minor stomach problems. And if you are a person who often feels digestive discomfort, you can use this method in advance to try to be preventative.
6. Head and heart
If you wish for some relief in your head or your heart concerning pressure or tension, place a clothespin on your earlobe. Obviously, this is only effective for minor issues and you should immediately consult a doctor for chest pain.
