So many people I talk with are stressed. The demands of work, family, finances, education, finding time for it all and striving for balance on a daily basis can really wear you down. To help, try a five minute ear massage. Yes, I said EAR massage. In Ayurvedic medicine the energy points for the entire body are represented in the ear making it an ideal site to quickly and effectively relieve stress and energize the mind. Best of all, it’s easy to perform self-massage on the ear. Two hands, two ears, put them together and give a good rub. (You may want to watch the video for a few techniques.) Enjoy.

  1. Hi, Donna. Who would have thunk?

    I was skeptical at first, but I decided to commit the whole video, and I liked it. (Isn't that a song?)

    Anyway, I live in Milwaukee. For all I know everyone is doing this on the subways in NYC now.

    That feels good! I had no idea that this was an ayurvedic technique. I intuitively do this for clients in healing sessions. Thanks for sharing!

    At this point where I am so stressed out and I am suffering from sleep apnea (sleep apnea clinic), I will try this. I need all the help I can get.
