Ear Seeds

Ear seeds are a form of auriculotherapy where a small latex sticker with a seed or stainless steel ball is placed on different points in the ear to treat a variety of conditions. The theory behind ear seeds is similar to the theory of auricular acupuncture in that the ear is viewed as a self-contained microsystem that connects different parts of the ear to different parts of the body.

Within the ear there are more than 120 acupressure points that have a close relationship to the nervous system. By stimulating these points with an ear seed, an acupuncturist is apply to supply patients with a continuation of a treatment or an easy at home way to treat a wide array of conditions.


Some of the conditions that ears seeds can help treat include:

  • Acute/chronic pain

  • Anxiety/stress

  • Depression

  • Infertility

  • Insomnia

  • Migraines

  • Substance abuse

  • Weight issues
