The ear contains a network of hundreds of nerve endings, which are linked directly to the message centers of the brain.
Stimulation of those points is called Auriculotherapy.
EarSeeds are safe, non-invasive, easy-to-apply acupressure devices that provide stimulation for days at a time.SHOP EarSeeds Now!
The ear is microsystem of the entire body, with points shown to correspond to everything from physical pain to emotional imbalance. The stimulation of specific points or combinations of points can have a therapeutic effect or promote homeostasis in the body.
Ear seeds are a safe, effective and non-invasive tool used to stimulate those points. They are affixed to the surface of the ear with adhesive tape and apply constant pressure to the auricular points.
An EarSeeds Certified TM Practitioner can dig below the surface of your symptoms and customize a treatment plan to address almost any condition including:

For a truly customized treatment, designed to get to the root of your issues, you want to be sure you're seeing an EarSeeds Certified Practitioner.
An EarSeeds Certified TM Practitioner is trained to be able to read your ear. What does that mean?
Fascinatingly, the ear not only houses this complex network of nerves, it actually changes in appearance & acts as a mirror to what is going on below the surface. Your practitioner may have you fill out an intake form to get an overall view of your health and then examine the ear for visual indicators of imbalance in areas associated with your condition.
They will then select a variety of points specifically for you. They will usually clean the ear with a bit of alcohol and feel around in different areas of the ear with a probe or tweezers, looking for tender areas to indicate activated points.
They will explain to you what they are doing, and what they are looking for, they may even snap a picture of the indicators on your ear that they're identifying and show you what they see.
After placement, your practitioner will instruct you how often to press on the seeds. For general well-being and stress, you can press on them periodically through the day.
When EarSeeds are on your ears, they're very easy to care for. Using the pad of your index finger simply press on them throughout the day or as often as directed by your practitioner. Do not massage them back and forth, especially after showering or getting them wet. Let them re-dry on their own to maintain their adhesive "stick." EarSeeds should stay in place a minimum of 2-4 days. Remove them after 5 days if they are still in place, and give your ears 12-24 hours to rejuvenate.
You may want to remove them in anticipation of your next practitioner appointment.

EarSeeds are generally a pain & side effect-free modality. However in some cases, particularly when dealing with pain and injury, there can be more tenderness than is desired.
The ear may even become warm and red at the application site. This is generally a good sign, as it indicates the ear points are "active" and the body is responding to the stimulation. If the tenderness is too painful, especially for sleeping, you can remove the ear seeds and replace them with fresh ones in the morning. As the body pain or issue dissipates, the associated discomfort in the ear will as well.
There is no universal answer to this question since everyone is different. Many factors including the type of condition, the root cause, presentation and individual response all affect treatment plan and response time.
Some people report feeling the results instantaneously or within minutes.
For others it may take 24-48 hours, or it may require a number of treatments over a matter of weeks. Your practitioner may choose different points from one treatment to the next in order to determine which are the most beneficial points for you.
