The Auricular Exercise/ Ear massage

The Auricular Exercise/Ear massage

also known as:

auricular or ear acupressure

Your ear lobes are energetically linked to your brain.  When you massage the right ear lobe it stimulates the left brain and pituitary gland.  When you massage the left ear lobe, it stimulates the right brain and pineal gland, giving you a whole brain experience.

The ear contains more than two hundred pressure points that influence different areas of the body and the psyche.

Ear massage detoxifies and stimulates the body’s systems. . It improves the circulation, strengthens the immunity and relaxes the body and the mind.

Ear massage also aids in breaking the pain-spasm-pain cycle. Most chronic pain is due to the constriction of connective tissue surrounding muscles in spasm. Muscles remain in spasm when the brain instructs motor neurons to initiate and sustain their contraction. Regardless of the mechanism, applying pressure to the ear in specific locations has been found to relieve body pain.

Ear massage triggers the release of the body’s natural painkillers, endorphins. Studies have demonstrated that Ear massage increases levels of endorphins in both the blood and cerebrospinal fluid

Based on the belief that a microcosm of the human body exists in the ear, Ear massage can provide relief for addictions, allergies, anxiety, arthritis, asthma, depression, headaches, hunger, hypertension, pain, panic attacks, weight problems and more.

*Particularly effective in the integration of the speech and language system*

It stimulates the reticular formation of the brain to tune out distracting, irrelevant sounds and tune into language or other meaningful sounds. The words and meaning of language are more accessible simultaneously with the sounds, rhythm and imagery.
