Earseeds are small, round seeds that are placed on specific points on the ear to stimulate healing. This ancient healing practice is based on the concept of microsystems, where specific points on the body correspond to specific organs and systems. The ear microsystem is one of the most widely used and effective microsystems in acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

In recent years, earseeds have become increasingly popular as a non-invasive, drug-free alternative for treating a wide range of health issues. The seeds are often used to treat conditions such as anxiety, insomnia, pain, addiction, and even weight loss.

Mechanism of Action

The mechanism of action for earseeds is similar to acupuncture, where the seeds stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms by triggering specific nerve points in the ear. This can help to improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and release endorphins to alleviate pain and promote relaxation.

Earseeds are easy to use at home

Earseeds are easy to use and can be applied by a qualified practitioner or even at home with the proper instructions. The seeds can be left in place for several days or even up to a week, providing continuous stimulation for ongoing healing benefits.

Incorporating earseeds into your wellness routine can help to promote a healthier, balanced body and mind. Consult with a qualified practitioner to determine the best points to use for your individual needs.

At Vida, every patient gets ear seeds at the end of their treatment to continue experiencing the benefits of acupuncture.
