Has anyone heard of this before? A sales woman that used to frequent the funeral home called yesterday and stated that she has changed jobs and in the meantime she was doing "ear stapling". (First off I should state that this particular woman seems to have her stuff together, is poised, well educated....and so on.) I thought that I surely hadn't heard her right. She went ahead to tell me that a stainless steel "staple" is "stapled" into a specific pressure point (depending on your needs) of your ear. This is supposed to help with the following: stress relief, migranes, smoking cessation and weight loss. If your ear is staples for weight loss, on average a person will lose between 4 and 7 lbs a week. Of course, with everything, it doesn't work for everyone, but apparently has worked for many. The staple stays in for 5-6 weeks, as it becomes ineffective after this point, and is then removed. Sounds weird, but interesting.
Oh yeah, the really weird and out there part.......they do parties. You know, like home interior, tupperware, pampered chef, etc..... The hostess gets her ear stapled free. I am almost tempted to throw one. Would you come?
