What are EarSeeds?The basics
The ear is a microsystem of the entire body.
Ear Seeds are a non-invasive, safe and effective tool used to stimulate points on this microsystem.
Ear Seeds consist of tiny seeds, beads or pellets that are held in place on the surface of the ear with tape.
When you know where they go, you simply:

It’s about proper placement.
Worn for 2-5 days at a time, all ear seeds work on the same principle of providing acupressure on specific ear points.
Proper placement is the #1 key to effective ear seeding.
All of our EarSeeds Condition charts and kits are designed to teach you points traditionally associated with specific common conditions. They are created by licensed acupuncturist and Auriculotherapy expert and teacher, Elie Goldschmidt, L.Ac.. Additionally, some of the charts are created in conjunction with acupuncturist specialists in their respective fields.
