Ear Reflexology can be traced back to Chinese medical work of 4000 years ago. It is a healing treatment that stimulates points on the ear that correspond to different parts of the body.
It is believed that Ear Reflexology works by directly stimulating the central nervous system, as opposed to traditional reflexology which relaxes the body to allow balancing of the systems. Also unlike traditional reflexology, each ear represents the whole body so only one ear is worked on at a time.
Ear reflex can be used to supplement a standard foot reflex treatment with only a few points on the ear used, or a full ear reflex treatment can be given which takes around 30 minutes. It is a very effective treatment for offering pain relief for musculoskeletal problems – conditions such as frozen shoulder, as well as generally tonifying the system.
During this day you will look at and learn about:
- Contra-indications to ear Reflexology
- Treatment Protocols for Certain Conditions
- How it works
- Nerve distribution
- Anatomy and Physiology of the Ear
- Detailed diagrams showing how the ear relates to the body’s systems
- An ear reflex treatment
You will be assessed throughout the day and gain your certificate at the end of the day.

What to Wear?
Students at the Academy are encouraged to be relaxed and at ease. For this reason, it is recommended loose comfortable trousers and tops are worn that enable easy movement and do not restrict the body. All loose tops and shirts should be tucked in to prevent ‘trailing’ on the client for practical courses. Shoes should be flat-heeled and comfortable.
