Reflexology is a therapy in which you work with the nerve endings that connect with each area of the body.

In the ear, ear reflexology relates these points to the shape of a baby in a fetal position.

In this way, the points to you must press are in relation to the baby’s body.

This therapy has many stimulation points and you can learn to massage them to solve problems like headaches.

The areas used on the ear are the most sensitive when receiving sensory stimulation such as heat, light, sound, electromagnetic sensations and pressure. Thus, their stimuli produce reactions in the other organs of the body, depending on the point you’re working on.

 Ear massage


Ear stimulation, or an ear micromassage,  can be carried out in three different ways: adding pressure using the full finger, the fingertip, or the tip of the nail.

You can also use an eraser at the end of a pencil, matches or small balls to add pressure.

It’s important to know that the pressure exerted on the area must increase progressively. That way, it continues to be effective over time and as the treatment progresses.

  • For example, pressing the area on the ear that corresponds to the spleen will facilitate digestion.
  • Pressing the point that relates to the lungs drives blood circulation and gives you energy. Moreover, this point is used to alleviate respiratory system diseases such as asthma or edema caused by circulation disorders.
  • By stimulating the point corresponding to the small intestine, you can treat diarrhea problems, poor gastrointestinal absorption, abdominal distension and various discomfort.

As you can see, your ears not only tell you things about yourself, but also help to alleviate certain ailments. All you need to do is identify and know which part of the body corresponds to each part of the ear.
