Sometimes everyday life gets to us. We’ve all dealt with fatigue, aches, lack of sleep or motivation at one point or another. The solution might be as simple as a clothespin. Literally.
It could be that all your body needs is a little push-start to begin firing on all cylinders again. As unconventional as it sounds – when placed at the right spot, clothespins have helped numerous people.
According to reflexologist Helen Chin Lui, “Each ear contains a complete reflex map of the body, rich with nerve endings and multiple connectors to the central nervous system.”
Each of 6 different spots targets specific organs and organ systems in your body. Place a clothespin on the area of your choice, and unlock the benefits.

1. The upper part of the ear
The uppermost part of your ears is directly connected to your shoulders and back. By applying pressure to this spot only for a minute each day, you can reduce accumulated tension in those areas.
2. The top of the curve
This is the spot linked to your inner organs. If you are feeling internal tension or discomfort, place a clothespin on this spot. Do not internalize this as a long-term solution and always consult a doctor to find out the underlying causes.
3. The upper-middle part of the ear
This part of your ears is connected to your joints. Apply pressure to relieve joints stiffness and pain. Especially useful for people who spend their working days in front of a computer.
4. The lower-middle part of the ear
Pinch the lower-middle part to relief tension in your throat and sinuses. This will come handy when feeling congested, when you have a stuffy nose or if you just want to breathe more easily and get a good night’s sleep.
5. Just above the earlobe
The spot just above the earlobe is associated with digestion. By applying the clothespin here, one can neutralize indigestion and stomach ache.
6. The earlobe
This important spot is connected to your head and heart. Apply pressure there to relieve migraines and headaches as well as to boost your blood circulation.
