Ear Acupressure Point: An Introduction

$5

with Jean Guyette

Calendar Nov 13, 2018 at 6 pm

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. Jean volunteers her time for the non-profit organization, The National Acupuncture Detoxification Association, www.acudetox.com.
