Benefits of Ear Seeds
Ear seeds, used for auriculotherapy, are tiny 24k gold seeds that are placed on pressure points of the ear and worn for 2-5 days at a time. The ear is a microsystem of the entire body, which means that specific points on the ear correspond to certain parts of the body. Applying gentle pressure to these points helps to calm the nervous system and alleviate tension in both the body and mind.
Ear seeds may help with:
chronic pain • insomnia • stress • anxiety • depression • hormone imbalances • digestive issues • back pain • headaches • migraines •
Ear seeds have been shown to help reduce pain in a variety of regions in the body including back pain and shoulder pain. Ear seeds are also a great way to find natural relief from headaches and migraines.
The acupressure from ear seeds can help to balance your sympathetic nervous system, also known as your “fight or flight” response. This encourages the body to regulate cortisol levels and calm both the mind and body.
Stress and insomnia are very closely linked. Since ear seeds work to bring balance to the body, mind, and reduce stress, this can lead to an improvement in quality of sleep.
“I’ve had migraines nonstop for the past eight days. I’ve been taking Excedrin and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Since putting ear seeds in, I haven’t had a migraine. They’re worth a shot!”
What to Expect
Ear seeds are a quick and painless service that only takes 15 mintes or less! During a session, you will discuss your goals with one of our Wellness Advocates. You may also look through a booklet to decide which condition you want to target, whether it be headaches, stress & anxiety, allergies, and more. You can choose between 24k gold, stainless steel, or Swarovski crystal seeds. Feel free to mix and match! Our Wellness Advocate will then place at least five points on the pressure point of the ear using a tweezer. In a matter of minutes, you’ll not only find therapeutic relief, but leave with a little added bling!
Before Your Session
It may be a good idea to take a few moments and reflect on how you’ve been feeling lately, both mentally and physically. This will determine the placement of the seeds. It may be helpful to remove any large earrings and tie back long hair.
Ear seeds are safe enough to replace every week or every other week.
After Your Session
Since ear seeds work on acupressure points on the ear, it is a good idea to press down on the seeds every once in a while or if you’re having a moment of tension. Ear seeds can be worn up to five days after application. After that, it is recommended to remove them by peeling them of the ear.
If you are pregnant, please consult your doctor before booking this service.
On a rare occasion, some guests may experience nausea or dizziness after application. This should subside within a few moments.
How long do ear seeds last?
Ear seeds can be worn up to five days after application. You can continue to wear ear seeds even when swimming, showering, sweating, etc. It is recommended to wait a day or two before applying a new set of seeds.
Do ear seeds hurt?
The application process and ear seeds themselves are painless since they aren’t actually puncturing the skin. The spots where the seeds are placed may feel a little tender, but nothing more intense than that.
How long until I feel results?
This varies from person to person. Some people will find immediate relief, whereas others with a more severe condition may feel results after a few weeks with multiple sessions.
