What is Ear Seeding
Auriculotherapy also known as Ear Acupressure
Ear Seeding is simply another alternative form of healing with pressure over specific positions on the outer ear.
The ear hosts over 120 acupoints that corresponds to various body parts and also resembles an upside-down fetus. The mapping of the upside-down fetus to the outer ear roughly shows the connection between the ear acupoints and their corresponding body parts.
Instead of using needles to stimulate these acupoints, small beads aka seeds are used to apply pressure to the points. The seeds are placed using a very small piece of tape that looks like a band-aid.
Ear Seeding stimulates the nerve connections between the ear and the central nervous system. When you apply pressure to specific points to the outer ear, it triggers nerve impulses from the ear to the brain.
This stimulation causes the brain to release pain-relieving molecules and endorphins into the bloodstream which in turn eases chronic pain and discomfort without any side effects.
While there are no side effects, Ear Seeding should not be used while pregnant and cannot be applied when ear is infected.
Ear Seeding can help in areas such as:
To Quit Smoking
