Reading an Ear Reflexology Chart

Originally posted here: wikihow

The reflexology points on a physical ear chart are located on the ear lobe, the outer canal area and the outer part of the ear that is located just above the ear lobe.

Get an ear reflexology chart online or refer to one in a book.

Take a few moments to study the chart. You will see a logical pattern of reflex points located on the different sections of the ear. The reflexology points are located on the outer ear and the outer ear canal area, as well as on the ear lobe. The reflex points for your organs are located on the inner area of the ear canal

Look at the chart to see which areas of your ear to press or massage that coincide with areas of your body in which you are experiencing difficulty. If you have discomfort or pain in your shoulder, for example, you would press an area on your outer ear. The chart indicates that that reflex spot is just about directly across from your ear canal.

Reading an Emotional Ear Reflexology Chart

Most of the reflex points on the emotional ear chart are located along the outer rim of the ear and on the ear lobe.

Look for emotional ear reflex points on a regular physical ear chart. Sometimes both aspects are combined on one chart.

  1. Determine which emotions you are interested in working with. The reflex points for treating depression and anxiety, for example, are located on the upper part of your outer ear.
    Find the reflex points for expansive, spiritual emotions on the outer part of your ear lobe.

EditTips

  • Don’t worry if you are unsure of where one reflex point ends and another begins. The ears are small and you are bound to press the correct reflex spot if you perform an overall ear massage.
  • Find the largest ear chart you can. There are hundreds of reflex points located in a very small area so a large wall chart works best for clarity.

EditWarnings

  • The points for ear reflexology are similar to, but not identical to those in auricular therapy, which is also known as ear acupuncture. Be sure you are referring to an ear reflexology chart and not an ear acupuncture chart.
