How Acupressure Can Boost Your Immune System AND Lower Your Stress And Anxiety

Ear seeds are small seeds used to stimulate pressure points in your ear, which is known as acupressure. It’s based on the same general principles as acupuncture. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), your health is dependent on the flow of Qi (energy) in your body. Ear seeds are placed on certain points, usually along meridian lines, to help clear up any Qi blockages. In TCM, resolving these blockages may help with a variety of health conditions (including stress and anxiety!).
