So, this is an example of an ear that is displaying chronic digestive congestion and it is SO neat to see something like this! However, this individual came to me because they had shoulder pain – a seemingly unrelated symptom.
Even more interesting, is that there are no markers in Horizontal Zone Two (the chest/lung/shoulder reflex zone). So, this case study is to share my thoughts about what this means and how I would coach this individual based on what we see here.
Where is it?
Looking at the map to the right and comparing it to the picture above, you can clearly see that there is a marker in Horizontal Zone Three and a larger one in Horizontal Zone Four. All we are doing from a Reflexology theory perspective is applying the map of the five major ‘zones’ (or sections of the body) to the five major sections of the ear. By doing so, we can know where the congested areas of the body are based on where the markers are located according to Reflexology theory.
In this case, we are looking at a right ear. On this right ear, the markers are present on the Liver Reflex area in Horizontal Zone Three and then the Small Intestine Reflex in Horizontal Zone Four. This gives us a deeper understanding as we go to assess the meaning of the marker and formulate a coaching plan based on Reflexology theory.
