On our little ears, there are 93 acupuncture points. According to holographic theory, the ear is like a fetus inverted in the womb, with its head down, its hips up, and its trunk in the middle. Different positions on the ears correspond to different parts of the human body. If some parts of the body have problems, you can simply massage the corresponding areas on the ears.
First, let’s understand the basic structure of the ear. As shown in the figure, the ears we usually refer to are the auricles exposed on the body surface. The lower part of the auricle is the earlobe; The outer edge of the auricle is the concha; The “Y” shaped bulge opposite to the ear wheel is the opposite ear wheel; There is a triangular fossa between the two branches of the opposite helix; The longitudinal groove between the opposite ear and the ear is the auricular boat; The middle recess of the auricle is the concha, which is divided into the upper concha boat and the lower concha cavity. These structures of the ear have the following corresponding relationships with the human body:
Earlobes: head and face. Earlobes correspond to the head and face of the human body, including eyes, ears, teeth, tongue, tonsils and other organs. Therefore, when symptoms such as toothache, gum bleeding, sore mouth and tongue, sore throat, myopia and tinnitus occur, they can be alleviated by rubbing the earlobe.
Ear boat: upper limb. The ear boat is corresponding to the upper limb of the human body, and it is the finger, wrist, elbow, shoulder and clavicle from top to bottom. People with shoulder periarthritis, tennis elbow, wrist pain, finger numbness, paronychia and other upper limb diseases often have pain reaction points at the ear boat. Patients can find reaction points near the corresponding ear points according to their conditions and pinch them to alleviate their conditions.
Opposite ear wheel: trunk and lower limbs. The opposite ear wheel corresponds to the trunk. The upper 2 / 5 is the lumbosacral vertebra, the middle 2 / 5 is the thoracic vertebra, and the lower 1 / 5 is the cervical vertebra. Many people with low back pain and neck pain often have redness, small nodules, bulges, etc. in the corresponding parts of the opposite ear wheel. You can pinch these parts directly with your fingernails, or look for the most painful parts near the acupoints. There are also two forks on the opposite ear wheel, which correspond to the hip, sciatic nerve and lower limbs. People with sciatica, knee arthritis, heel pain, lower limb paralysis and other diseases can rub here more.
Concha: internal organs. Visceral acupoints are mainly distributed in the concha. The upper ear nail boat corresponds to the abdominal cavity and is often used to treat abdominal diseases such as diarrhea, constipation, appendicitis, prostatitis, cholecystitis, etc; The lower concha cavity corresponds to the thoracic cavity, which is often used to treat cough, asthma, chest tightness, angina and other chest diseases; The junction of the concha boat and the concha cavity is the stomach. People with gastritis, gastric ulcer and indigestion can click here more.
Triangular fossa: reproductive system. Triangular fossa mainly corresponds to the pelvic cavity and internal genitalia. It is often used to treat pelvic inflammation, adnexitis, irregular menstruation, excessive leucorrhea, impotence, ejaculation, premature ejaculation and other diseases of the male and female reproductive system. In addition, pressing and rubbing the triangular fossa also has a good regulatory effect on hypertension, neurasthenia and withdrawal syndrome.
During operation, the parts with large area (such as earlobes) can be directly rubbed with fingers, and other parts can be pinched with nails; To feel slight pain or burning, it is not appropriate to forcefully massage. Under normal circumstances, you can knead it in the morning and evening every day, dozens of times each time. Pregnant women should not try.
