An ear massage is known to boost the immune cells while providing the feeling of relaxation. By simply stroking and pulling the inner and outer ear gently, you can achieve the desired results. Do the exercise while taking super deep breaths and exhaling gently. You can also use the index finger to trace the inner parts of your ear to release tension in other parts of your body. Adding oils while massaging also provides a soothing effect while at the same time making you feel energized and relaxed.
Neck and back pain
For neck and back pain, try doing the ear massage. Avoid over-the-counter drugs which might not be helpful in the long-term and can have adverse side effects, and try an ear massage. Ear reflexology has been known to work for those experiencing neck and back pain. Ear massage releases endorphin, which are natural painkillers that will numb the pain.
For the neck pain, gently massage your earlobes between your first two fingers and the ear lobes. In the case of back pain, press the outer ear gently in a circular motion. This, in turn, subdues muscle spasms by ordering the brain from producing painful spinal reflexes.
Commonly found in children, also known as Otitis Media is usually characterised by dizziness, ringing in the ear and difficulty hearing. By gently applying pressure on the earlobes, you can drastically reduce the infection by a large percentage.
Continuous ear exercise combined with other chiropractic exercises is a sure way of getting rid of this infection. Unfortunately, relying on modern medicine may not always work.
It is quite disheartening to see people struggling with conditions that could easily be treated by a good ear massage. Ear massage is believed to trigger reflex centres to send messages through the spinal cord to various parts of the body, releasing tension and pain in different organs of the body.
Want to feel more energised and focused? Want stronger immunity and improved breathing? Look no further. The power is in your ears, literally. Before seeking modern medicine, try an ear massage and discover new ways of finding tranquility.
