Do you notice that our ear is like an inverted fetus? From the image below, you can see that the earlobe matches the head of a fetus; therefore, this part of the ear is closely linked to our face and head based on reflexology.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the energy of the kidneys opens to the ears, and the kidneys are the power center of our longevity. Have you ever noticed those people who have a very long lifespan usually have long and big ears? This is not a coincidence. One time I mentioned this information to a few health care professionals, they were very curious and went to check on some seniors in the long-term care facilities. A few days later, they told me that they were shocked by this fact – the ear spells the secret of longevity. Such a small ear contains hundreds of acupoints and reflection areas, isn’t it amazing? Actually, you can prevent illnesses and also cure diseases by stimulating certain areas on your ears.

Now let’s take a look at some important reflection areas on the ear from an ear reflexology chart below.

From this image, you can see that the top part of the ear helix and scapha reflect the knees and upper legs; the middle part reflects the shoulders and upper arms; and the lower part reflects the head including the mouth, teeth, and eyes. On the other hand, the fossa and concha of the ear reflect inner organs. Below is an image of the ear structure to help you better understand each part of the ear.

The amazing thing about the ear is that unusual changes in your ears can raise an alarm about a specific part of your body, here are a few examples.
