What Is Auriculotherapy? 

Auriculotherapy is the stimulation of specific points on the ear, which is believed to be a microsystem of the entire body. There are over 200 points in the ear, they can help physical and emotional conditions.

The ear serves as a micro system, where the whole body is reflected in the ear. The way the body is reflected in the ear is like an upside-down foetus: The head is where the ear lobe is, the spine is the curved, protruding ridge which goes from the bottom to the top of the ear, the centre is where the inner organs are. The World Health Organization stated that the ear is perhaps the most studied microsystem of the entire body. Some texts show it has been studied as far back as 4000 years! Acupuncturists often stimulate those points with acupuncture needles. Ear Seeds are another tool used to stimulate those points.

They are safe, natural and non-invasive, sitting on the surface of the ear and held in place with a patch of adhesive tape.

What are Ear Seeds or Ear Pellets? 

Ear Seeds are tiny seeds from the vaccaria plant, which is known in Chinese Medicine to promote energy and overall health and well-being. They are held in place on the ear with a piece of adhesive, skin coloured tape, which contains latex.

Ear Pellets are tiny stainless-steel metal pellets with clear, latex free adhesive tape. They contain nickel. They are also called Ear Seeds. Additionally, there are also Ear Pellets with tiny metal pellets plated in 24-karat gold with clear latex free adhesive tape. They have Swarovski Crystals on the outside, which are for aesthetic purposes. These can be referred to as  – Bling Ear Seeds!

What are they for? 

Ear seeds are placed on specific points on the ear and should be massaged every few hours. There are over 200+ conditions that they can assist in, although we cover just the main indications on the course.

Offer your clients a whole new treatment or add the service onto your existing treatments to further enhance the outcome.

There are no needles, treatment in non-invasive and pain free and the seeds can stay in place for 3-5 days.
