Here’s What Happens When You Press This Point On Your Ear

It seems everyone is trying different forms of alternative medicine rather than using toxic pills/medications to treat minor illnesses. If you’re like me and don’t like the idea of swallowing another pill, you should look towards acupuncture.

According to this Chinese form of alternative medicine, there is a specific point on the human ear that acts as a gateway to general wellness: the Shen Men, which translates to “heavenly gate.” Practiced in China for centuries, pressing this point on the external ear can help to relieve stress, anxiety, allergies, headaches, addiction, inflammation, depression, and pain.


You can stimulate the Shen Men by pinching the point on your upper ear between your index finger and thumb.


Moving your fingers in a circular motion, massage this point one to two times a day for about a minute.
