Massage Your Ears to Increase Your Libido
With Valentine’s Day approaching, it’s time to get ready for some romance. If you’re in need of a libido boost, the solution is surprisingly simple. By applying pressure to specific points on your ear, in what is known as auriculotherapy, you can increase your sexual desire.
What does an ear massage have to do with your libido?
The ear is a microsystem of the entire body. Points correspond to different body systems, including those related to sexual function. Stimulating the nerve connections found on ear points sends messages to the brain, which in turn releases “feel good” hormones, like endorphins. Not only does this improve mood, it also has a positive effect on sex drive.
Though based on practices seen in traditional Chinese medicine, Dr. Paul Nogier is credited with discovering the current methodology used in auriculotherapy in the 1950s. He noticed that patients experienced relief for conditions, such as sciatica, when ear points were stimulated.
Which ear points improve your sex drive?
When using auriculotherapy to rev up your sexual desire, here are two key points to focus on as defined by the Auriculotherapy Manual: Chinese and Western Systems of Ear Acupuncture by Terry Oleson:
- Sexual Desire Point (also called External Genitals point):
The point is located on the helix root where it leaves the face and meets the superior edge of the tragus. It increases libido and enhances sexual arousal.
- Excitement Point:
This point is found on the inside wall of the antitragus just below the apex. It causes excitation of the cerebral cortex, which alleviates sexual impairment.
How do you stimulate these points?
Auriculotherapy is a simple, holistic, non-invasive treatment that can be done at home. In this case, massage the points listed above with your thumb and index finger, applying mild pressure, for approximately 30 seconds every few hours. You should experience a warm sensation and the area might turn slightly red. For extra benefit, stimulate them with ear seeds and apply them to additional points as directed in EarSeeds.com complete libido kit.
This World Health Organization-approved approach isn’t just successful for regulating sexual desire. Auriculotherapy has been shown to be an effective method for helping with smoking cessation and weight loss and for managing depression, anxiety and pain, among other conditions. The small black seeds of the vaccaria plant are adhered to ear points for a few days. The wearer presses the seeds for a few seconds every couple of hours.
Spice up your Valentine’s Day with a massage… well an ear massage anyway. Auriculotherapy is easy to do and safe. Give the technique a try to increase your sexual desire naturally.
