If you're looking for a way to add some sparkle to your appearance, consider getting a new ear piercing. But did you know that certain ear piercings can actually benefit your body in various ways? That's right! The art of ear piercing goes far beyond just aesthetics. In this blog post, we'll explore some of the ear piercings that can help the body and why you might want to consider getting them done at Thirdeye Studio, the premier piercing studio in Jupiter, Florida.
The Conch piercing (Figure A) is another popular piercing that can have therapeutic benefits. It's located in the center of the ear's cartilage and can help support muscle function, muscle relaxation and chronic pain. It is also believed to stimulate the acupuncture point for anxiety relief. The piercing is great to alleviate stress and promote a sense of calm, making it a great option for those who struggle with anxiety.
The Helix piercing (Figure B) is located on the upper cartilage of the ear and is known for its decorative purposes. However, it's believed that the piercing can help alleviate chronic headaches and help aid in relief from insomnia and allergies as well. The theory is that the piercing stimulates the nerves that lead to the forehead, promoting blood flow and easing tension.
The Tragus piercing (Figure C) is located on the small flap of cartilage that covers the ear canal's opening. It's not only believed that this piercing can help with supporting weight loss and curbing those unwanted sugar cravings but it also can help alleviate ear infections and promote healthy ear function. The Tragus piercing stimulates the Vagus nerve, which regulates various body functions, including ear function. The piercing can help increase blood flow to the ear, promoting healing and preventing infections.
In addition to the Conch, Helix, and Tragus piercings, there are several other ear piercing locations that can offer therapeutic benefits. Here are a few more:
The Rook piercing is located in the ridge of cartilage between the inner and outer conch. This piercing can provide many benefits to the body. It can aid in digestion and reduce constipation. Like the conch piercing, the rook piercing can also help alleviate anxiety and reduce stress which helps with insomnia by stimulating the Shen Men point, which is a pressure point that promotes relaxation.
The Industrial piercing is a combination of two piercings: one in the Helix and another in the forward Helix. This piercing is believed to help with migraines, as it stimulates the nerves in the ear that are connected to the head and neck.
The Anti-Tragus piercing is located opposite the Tragus, on the outer edge of the ear. It's believed that this piercing can help with menstrual cramps, as it stimulates the reflexology point associated with the uterus.
Forward Helix Piercing:
The Forward Helix piercing (figure d) is located in the forward-facing part of the Helix. It's believed that this piercing can help with migraines, dizziness and motion sickness. The forward helix piercing stimulates the nerves in the ear that are connected to the head and neck. Again, this piercing is also said to help greatly with anxiety and stress.
