This is What Happens to Your Body When You Put a Clothespin on Your Ear

Being in control of one’s body is highly sought after by those who suffer from chronic aches, pains, mental illnesses, and other debilitating conditions.  It can be hard to acknowledge that your body is doing something you don’t want it to do, and the most stubborn of people will hold out, thinking they can fix whatever is wrong by using sheer willpower.

While simply wishing something away will likely not work, there are alternatives to pharmaceuticals and modern medicine, some of which have been around for centuries.  One of these is the method of pinching a clothespin to various different spots on your ears.

I know it sounds strange at first, the idea of your ear being able to affect other parts of your body, but as 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.”

While this method should never take the place of professional medical advice, the ear reflexology method is worth a try, whether it’s done with just your fingers, or an actual clothespin.

Each one of these six points is connected to pain and soreness in a specific part of the body; applying pressure to each spot will help relieve pain and aches for that part of the body.

Scroll through and see which points might work for you!

The most upper part of your ear is directly connected to your back and shoulders; applying pressure to this spot for about a minute should help reduce built-up tension.  Practice several times a day to relieve back and shoulder pain.

The next spot down is connected to the body’s organs.  If you suffer from severe internal pain, see a doctor, but for minor internal discomfort, try your fingers or a clothespin on this spot.

The upper-middle portion of the ear is the most closely associated with pain and stiffness in the joints.  Pressure on this spot will provide relief in the jointed areas.  Chronic joint pain is worth going to a doctor for, but this method is worth a shot.

The fourth, lower-middle part of the ear is associated with the sinuses and throat.  Pressure here can help with relief from a cold or sinus infection and throat soreness.

The fifth position, just above the lobe, is connected to the digestive processes of the body.  A clothespin here will help relieve digestive issues and minor stomach problems.  This method can be done in advance as a preventative measure.

The lowest point on the ear, the lobe, is connected to the two most important parts of our body: the head and the heart.  Pressure on this spot will promote a healthy heart and can relieve unwanted pressure in the head.  It is great for relieving pressure headaches.

Give them a try!
