Ear Reflexology Massage
Ear reflexology, also known as "auricular therapy", is a type of massage designed to find pressure points in and around the ear that when triggered, can relieve tension in different areas of the body. This massage therapy technique is borrowed from ancient Chinese medicine and has been practiced for centuries.
This unique and non-invasive treatment is effective because the ear actually has nerve endings that connect to the central nervous system, as well as various body parts. In the hands of an experienced ear reflexologist, it is possible to determine the points of the ear that directly relate to different energy centres of the body, which are commonly referred to as "meridians".
What problem areas can be treated by reflexology?
- Shoulder and back pain
- Throat and sinus issues
- Joint and tendon problems
- Digestive issues
- Anxiety and depression
- Sleep disorders and nervous tension
Although small, the ear is a primary gateway to many energy centres throughout the body. With properly applied techniques, ear reflexology can help to relieve pain, speed up healing, correct various digestive and joint issues, as well as soothe and relax those experiencing mild to moderate pain in Spruce Grove or Stony Plain.
In case you were wondering about the legitimacy of ear reflexology massage, even the prestigious Mayo Clinic agrees that in the hands of a professional therapist, many studies have shown that reflexology can absolutely improve various heath-related issues.
