Unlock the powerhouse above your ears with a tug - guaranteed to boost your kidney energy! The kidneys, foundational to our well-being, play a crucial role in determining our health and longevity.
In the realm of traditional Chinese medicine, the ears are considered an external manifestation of the kidneys. 'Strong ears indicate strong kidneys, while weak ears indicate fragile kidneys.' The length of the earlobe and the fullness of ear tissues are indicative signs of robust kidney energy.
The ears are intricately connected to the body's meridians and internal organs. Specific stimulation points corresponding to various organ tissues exist on the ear's surface. When an organ experiences dysfunction, a particular area on the ear will exhibit changes and reactions. Hence, stimulating specific ear acupoints can aid in diagnosing and treating related ailments.
How to Massage Your Ears for Optimal Health
Lift the Earlobe
Place the index fingers inside the ear screen, use the index and thumb to lift the earlobe from the inside out. The pulling force should start light and gradually increase, with a limit of no pain. Repeat for 3 to 5 minutes.
This method is effective for treating headaches, dizziness, nervous exhaustion, and tinnitus.
Ear Wheel Massage
Form fists with both hands, use the thumb and index finger to massage along the ear wheel in an up-and-down motion until the ear wheel becomes warm and flushed.
This technique enhances brain function, strengthens the kidneys, improves hearing, sharpens vision, and prevents conditions such as impotence, frequent urination, constipation, lower back and leg pain, cervical spondylosis, palpitations, chest tightness, headaches, and dizziness.
Lift the Ear Tip
Pinch and lift the tip of the ear wheel with the thumb and index finger, moving upwards with rubbing, pinching, and friction for 15 to 20 times until the area becomes warm and red.
This method has calming, analgesic, brain-clearing, vision-enhancing, fever-reducing, anti-allergic, and kidney-nourishing effects. It also helps prevent and treat hypertension, insomnia, pharyngitis, and skin diseases.
Lift the Ear Screen
Place the joined fingers on the inner side of the ear screen, use the index and thumb to lift the ear screen from the inside out. The pulling force should start light and gradually increase. Repeat for 3 to 5 minutes.
This method treats ailments such as headaches, dizziness, nervous exhaustion, and tinnitus.
Rubbing Both Ears
Gently pinch the earlobes with both hands, then rub until they become red and warm. Afterward, grasp the earlobes and pull them down, releasing them to let them bounce back. Repeat this 20 times, two to three times a day.
This method promotes blood circulation in the ears and contributes to kidney and lower back health.
Ear Sweeping with Both Hands
Sweep the ears from back to front with both hands, producing a 'cracking' sound. Repeat this 20 times, several times a day.
By consistently following this method, you can strengthen the kidneys and improve overall health.
Ear Pulling with Both Hands
Reach the left hand over the top of the head and pull the right ear upwards several times, then switch directions and repeat.
This method also stimulates the secretion of the submandibular and sublingual glands, alleviating throat pain and treating chronic pharyngitis.
Ear Plucking with Both Hands
Extend both index fingers, insert them separately into the ear canals, rotate 180 degrees, repeat three times, and immediately pull them out, producing a 'popping' sound. Generally, repeat this process 3 to 6 times.
This method sharpens hearing and contributes to brain health.
Drumming the Sky
Place both palms tightly against the ears, sealing the ear canals with the palm centers, and use the thumbs and pinkies to secure them. The remaining three fingers, either together or interlaced, tap the occipital bone behind the head, targeting the acupoints for brain stimulation, wind pool, and mute gate. The ears will resonate with a 'thump-thump' sound.
This technique invigorates the mind, awakens the brain, and enhances hearing. It serves as both a daily health maintenance practice and an effective remedy for common issues in middle-aged and elderly individuals, such as tinnitus, dizziness, insomnia, headaches, and nervous exhaustion.
Full Ear Massage
After rubbing the palms together to generate heat, massage the front (ear surface) and then fold backward to massage the backside, repeating 5 to 6 times.
