This is a trick that’s very similar in nature to acupuncture. Helen Chin Lui, a reflexologist, or medical expert on ears and reflexes, explains that every ear is connected to the entire body, which means it’s also connected to your nerve system. Chin Lui shows in which spots you should pin the clothespin to relieve pain. Each of these six points is connected to pain or soreness in a specific part of your body.
