By provoking the ear reflex points, studies have shown that the body can systemically release endorphins. There are at least 20 different kinds of endorphins. Endorphins are responsible for feelings of pleasure and block pain. Patients have used this therapy to help relieve symptoms related to a variety of disorders such as:
- Chronic pain
- Buildup of toxins
- Hypertension (elevated blood pressure)
- Anxiety & Stress
Nearly all health problems can be traced back to specific sites on the ear. Stimulation of ear reflex points can send signals down nerve reflex pathways from the ear to the brain and outwards along the spine and into desired areas. Any present disease or injury can be targeted to relieve symptoms through repeated therapy.
