Ear Seeds are a non-invasive, safe and effective tool used to stimulate acupressure points in the ear. Ear seeds consist of tiny vaccaria seeds, beads or pellets on a sticker that can be affixed to specific acupressure points in the ear. These acupressure points can treat just about any health condition. Our patients often ask for earseeds to combat aches and pains, manage stress and anxiety, assist with digestive disorders or hormonal imbalances, and even stimulate weight loss! 
At Healing with Zen, we offer gold, silver and Swarovski crystal upgrades for a more stylish look. 
Ear acupuncture (auriculotherapy) has been used for centuries as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, but was studied more extensively in the 1950’s by a French neurologist named Paul Nogier. Since then, studies have documented specific points on the ear that correspond to every part of the body!  
In the 1980’s, ear acupuncture was popularized for treating many types of addictions, everything from drugs to smoking, eating disorders and gambling. Today, we use ear seeds as a great tool to enhance and prolong results from our patient’s acupuncture treatments.

Because the points in the ears can correspond to every body part and organ, ear seeds can be used to treat almost any ailment! Alleviate your muscle aches, melt your stress away and feel better by trying ear seeds! 

Absolutely! Everyone can benefit from ear seeds! Because of it’s gentle and non-invasive nature, we often use this modality on kids and those who may be sensitive to acupuncture needles.

Besides some tenderness upon pressure of the ear seeds, there are no risks or side effects. The tenderness of certain points actually means that you are on the correct point and that it’s working! As your body re-adjusts and balances out, you’ll notice the points are less tender. Your acupuncturist will go over care instructions during your visit.

Usually they stay on for about 3-5 days and fall off on their own. You can exercise, sleep, shower and do all daily tasks with them. If they become bothersome, you can always easily remove them yourself.
