Did you know there are reflexology points on the ear? Earaches are sometimes caused by sinus inflammation, which can make your ears feel stuffed up or cause painful throbbing around your temples and behind your ear. Applying pressure on these areas has been used as a remedy for pain and pressure in your ears and head.
A common issue that is related to the ears, but also the jaw is called TMJ disorder, also known as a temporomandibular joint disorder. TMJ acts like a sliding hinge, connecting your jawbone to your skull and you have one joint on each side of your jaw.
This point can be found right behind your earlobe. Stimulating this point with reflexology may relieve ears that feel "stuffed," as well as help to relieve tinnitus (when you experience ringing or other noises in one or both of your ears) and migraine. It’s more sensitive than other points so apply a light touch.
This pressure point is located directly in front of where your earlobe begins. Reflexology on this point is used to relieve the pressure that builds up around your jaw and in your ears. This could make it effective in treating tinnitus, ear infections, earache, tension headache, and migraine. Apply pressure to both lobes simultaneously.
This point is located on the top part of the innermost cartilage of your outer ear. Some people find this pressure point to be effective at treating migraines that they get a piercing at the daith to stimulate it. Stimulate this pressure point to relieve migraine headaches as well as tension and cluster headache.
