*There are over 160 acupuncture points in our ears that can be stimulated by doing a simple ear massage. Dr. Nogier, a French acupuncturist and medical doctor, found that by stimulating ear points with acupuncture needles, certain parts of the brain were stimulated. Extensive research resulted in the discovery of many acupuncture points in the ear that treated different parts of the body. The results of this ear massage may include pain relief and improved health of the body.
a) Apply a small amount of lotion (not petroleum based) to the ear. Don’t put lotion or massage in the External Auditory canal leading into the inner ear.
b) Massage gently from top to bottom and from inside to outside of the ear.
c) The inside of the ear works on improving the health of the organs of your body.
d) The outside of the ear works on legs, arms, shoulder, and back.
