Massaging Your Shen Men

Stress has often been described as the plague of the 20th and now 21st centuries. It's no secret that stress brings all manner of life threatening maladies in its wake, and it's further no surprise that all manner of weird and wonderful techniques have been developed over the years for dealing with this unseen killer. Such remedies range from buying yourself a pet cat or dog to chewing gum. Recently, Dr. Mark Sandomirsky gave some interesting advice on how to reduce stress levels to his viewers over a Russian TV show.
It sounds obvious and maybe even a little patronising to instruct people to let go of negative emotions as if we didn't already know we needed to do that.
But what is not quite so obvious is the necessity to do away with the physical bodily effects of the stress you've been suffering when once you've dealt with the emotional side of things. The best way to do this, according to Dr.Sandomirsky, is to massage a particular stress point found on the body, specifically the ear, thus activating a sort of pyscho-reflexive loop that will do away with the ill effects of stress. The Doctor's advice isn't strictly new. The Chinese have known about it for centuries and referred to the specific point Dr Sandormirsky was referring to as Shen Men, which literally means "Gate of Heaven".
