Ear seeds are an Auriculotherapy treatment with small stickers containing a seed like an acupuncture needle.
We have 24K gold seeds that are carefully placed in the ear at specific acupressure points that correspond to the conditions being suffered; the ear seeds stimulate a channel to help the patient’s condition without piercing the skin.
What is Auriculotherapy?
Auriculotherapy is also known as Auriculopuncture. It is a technique that comes from Acupuncture and consists of stimulating specific points in the ear; since the ears reflect the state of the internal organs, the body problems are reflected in the ears.
According to Dr. Shyu, Auriculotherapy is commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat and prevent anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, nausea, vomiting, substance abuse, and gynecological and digestive disorders.
What are they used for?
Ear seeds help with a variety of health problems, including:
- Chronic pain, shallow back pain
- Insomnia and other sleep problems
- Acute Pain
- Migraine and other headaches
- Weight loss
What to expect during treatment?
The expectations of ear seeds depend on the individual; the length of time and the relative effect rely on the person. “Some people respond incredibly to ear seeds; they are likely to see results the same day” some people may need a few applications to see a difference.
How long do ear seeds last?
The treatment is done first on one ear, and after 5 or 6 days, it is done on the other ear; you cannot put the ear seeds in both ears simultaneously; the ear seeds may fall out on their own after three to five days. Therefore, leaving them on for more than five days is not recommended, even if they are still in place.
