Did you know that your ear is a map of your mind and body and connects with the reflex centres of your brain? Stimulating specific points on your ear with Acupuncture and / or Acupressure helps relieve a range of physical, emotional, hormonal, digestive and inflammation conditions. EarSeeds are natural, effective, and side-effect-free

Ear seeds are seeds placed on your ear to serve as tiny acupressure devices. They’re a type of auriculotherapy, a traditional Chinese medicine technique that focuses on areas in your ear. They're thought to promote comfort and relaxation. People may use them to help with pain, insomnia, substance abuse, and mental issues ranging from anxiety to grief.

These seeds traditionally come from an herb called vaccaria but can also be made of ceramic or metal. They're placed on the outside of your ear over certai acupuncture points. They’re usually held in place by waterproof tape and stay on your ears for up to a week.

Ear seeds are safe for just about anyone, although it's always a good idea to tell your doctor about any alternative treatments you try. Some people use ear seeds along with acupuncture treatments. They may help the effects of acupuncture last longer between sessions.

After cleaning your ear with an alcohol swab, a practitioner places the seeds on the outside portion of your ear. It doesn’t hurt, but you may feel some tenderness or warmth.

Once they're in place, you massage them two to three times a day. To do this, apply gentle pressure to the seeds and move them in small circles.

If you have sensitive skin or a latex allergy, metal seeds or adhesive tape might cause some irritation. If your skin tends to get irritated by metal, stick with ceramic or vaccaria seeds.

Some people also develop small sores around the seeds. This is often due to massaging the seeds too frequently or not letting the ears rest before applying new seeds.

In addition, some people do experience side effects while using ear seeds, including brief spells of:

- dizziness
- nausea
- drowsiness

While these side effects aren’t very common, it’s best to avoid driving immediately after massaging your ear seeds until you know how your body reacts.
