Ear reflexology is also known as Auriculotherapy.
Just like the feet, the ears are a microsystem of the entire body. On the ears, there are many acupressure points which correspond to different areas of the body. Energy flows through our bodies via meridians. Stress and other issues can cause Qi energy to stagnate, causing blockages and imbalances within our body, eventually leading to illness and pain. Working the acupressure ear points can help to restore imbalances and energy flow within the body.
A firm, yet gentle pressure is applied using fingers and thumbs to work all areas of the ear in small circular movements.
