The Real Question – Does It Work?

Dr Joie P. Jones from the University of California, who has done extensive research on the subject, explains that the exercise works by distributing energy to different parts of the body. The acupressure points in the earlobes stimulate neuropathways to the eyes, mouth, temples etc.

However, many are sceptical about this practice and its benefits. Some versions of the Super Brain Yoga advise youngsters to face East and the elderly to face North while performing the exercise. It is also recommended to remove any jewellery while practising it. Sceptics accuse these rules to be linking the exercise with mysticism instead of Science.

According to some reviews of the book, it contains only 2 pages about the exercise while the remaining 113 pages talk about the writer (which may or may not be an exaggeration). There are also those who disregard the existence of acupressure points.

Science or not, in an educational system where teachers are fast losing their power to chastise students due to meddlesome parents, this seems like a smart way to get that cocky kid in place without incurring the higher authority’s wrath.

Indian Teachers’ Association propaganda, perhaps?
