If you have chronic back pain, ear acupressure can provide relief! So no needles – just ear massage. According to the University of Pittsburgh, patients who got ear acupressure once a week for a month cut their pain almost in half! Because points on the outer ear trigger neural pathways to release fewer inflammatory chemicals. So find a practitioner who can show you how to massage your own ear for pain relief.
