EAR SEEDS  are used as a non-invasive treatment, often as a take home supplement to your acupuncture treatment.  Some practitioners even use them in place of an acupuncture treatment.   In Chinese medicine treating the ears is known as auricular therapy.  The small round seeds are taped on specific acupuncture points of the outer ear and pressed several times a day.  You can take a shower or swim while wearing ear seeds and they generally remain in place for 3 to 7 days.

Ear seeds are used for conditions such as pain management, and many physical or emotional problems.  The ear’s acupuncture points help to regulate the body's internal organs, structures, and functions.
