Ear massage is an ancient Chinese secret to bringing more relaxation into your life. Just start at the top and roll the outer edge of your ear between your thumb and first finger all the way down to the ear lobe and repeat. It works because there are hundreds of calming acupuncture points located on the ear that we utilize with acupuncture to treat everything from anxiety to acute and chronic pain. Massaging the ear stimulates the nerve endings that lead to the release of endorphins, the feel good hormone that helps relieve pain and brighten your mood. A couple minutes of easy ear massage brings immediate relaxation to your nervous system.
Try it! You'll be glad you did.
