The most well-known piercing with an alleged added benefit is the daith. Your daith (pronounced ‘doth’, like ‘moth’), is a piercing located on your ear’s innermost cartilage fold.

Turns out that the most common piercing of all, the lobe, also comes with some potential benefits. Depending on where within the lobe your piercing is they could help with lowering symptoms of depression. They are also rumored to help heighten eyesight. It is said that pirates had their lobes pierced with gold hoops to help them see better when sailing the seas.
If you are in the market for appetite suppression, the tragus piercing is the one for you. In case you’re wondering, the handy little flap in front of your ear canal is also known as your tragus. There is an acupressure point located directly in the middle of this flap that is supposedly responsible for controlling your hunger pains. The best part about the tragus? There are SO many different cute jewelry options for this fun piercing placement.
A rook piercing is located near the inner ridge of the ear cartilage in the center of the ear, parallel to the outer rim of the ear. A lot of times this piercing is confused with the daith. Though this piercing is lesser known, getting this piercing is rumored to help release tension and lower stress levels.
Anyone love conch shells? (WE DO!) The conch piercing (pronounced “konk”) is located in the middle portion of your ear cartilage. It’s named after the shell due to the ear’s structural similarity to a conch. Due to the placement of the acupressure points within your ear, the conch piercing could have a therapeutic effect on reducing chronic pain. This pressure point also aids in muscle relaxation.
