Ear Acupressure Point: An Introduction
with Jean Guyette
Locating this area of the ear, the Shen Men acupressure point, can result in a feeling of relief and a lessening of tension and anxiety. It may also help relieve physical symptoms, such as headaches and sleep problems. Ear acupressure is one tool you can keep in your self care tool bag. Ear acupressure (also called "auricular therapy" or simply "ear treatments") is virtually free and can help you stay healthy. Class members will have the opportunity to view a demonstration of the 5-point NADA Protocol by a Licensed Maine Acupuncturist. Jean volunteers her time for the non-profit organization, The National Acupuncture Detoxification Association, www.acudetox.com.
