What are Earseeds?
Ear Seeds are tiny seeds, beads or pellets that are held in place on the surface of the ear with tape that are used to treat a variety of conditions or pain throughout the body.
The technical term for this is called Auriculotherapy. It is similar to reflexology, but instead of the feet we use the ear!
The ear is a micro-system of the entire body, and is covered in a network of nerve endings that communicate directly with the brain. They simply work by placing the seeds on the appropriate point on the ear that correlates to a specific condition, and pressing down on them for a few seconds multiple times during the day.
Some of the conditions Earseeds can be helpful for:
- Chronic or Acute Pain
- Weight Loss
- Back Pain
- Eyes and Vision
…..and so much more!
Earseeds come in a variety of looks and materials used. The traditional vaccaria seeds use tan adhesive tape and an actual seed from the vaccaria plant, although if you are allergic to latex-these aren’t for you. If looking for latex free with an understated look, Earseeds offers Stainless steel or 24k gold with an adhesive tape. Swarovski Crystal embellishment upgrades are also available if you want to get a little fancy with your seeds!
Earseeds can be added to your Massage session, or as a stand alone treatment! Also great for kids! I use Earseeds on my own son for allergies.
I do have some kits available here at Body Alchemy, or you can purchase online by using the link below.
All Earseeds kits or individual refill seeds can be purchased here!
