Self-administered clothespin acupuncture may not seem like a convention way to alleviate various pains in your body, however, it is a highly effective and affordable home remedy that is quickly growing in popularity.

Your ears have a number of pressure points whose nerves endings are directly connected to your central nervous system. By strategically placing clothespins on various points of your ears, you can provide significant relief for everyday body annoyances. Keep in mind that the level of effectiveness will vary from one person to the next.


Ear reflexology origins can be found thousands of years ago in ancient Chinese acupuncture methodologies and perhaps even earlier in Egyptian practices. The following are a few basic points to help you relieve pain naturally:

  1. Place a clothespin on the very top portion of your ear to provide a tremendous release in your back and shoulders.

  2. The next section just below the top portion is an ideal place for a clothespin when you have mild organ discomfort. If something becomes more than a slight discomfort, you should seek medical attention.

  3. For joint relief, place a clothespin on the upper-middle section of the ear.

  4. Skip over the exact middle and place a pin on the lower-middle section for natural assistance in clearing sinus and throat issues.

  5. Place a pin on the upper-bottom section of the ear, just above the earlobe, for aid in digestion and to soothe any minor upset stomach concerns.
