SPMU & Skin Clinic

Ear seeds are small seeds used to stimulate pressure points in your ear. They’re a type of auriculotherapy, which refers to acupressure or acupuncture focused on the ear.

They’re based on the same general principles as acupuncture. In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), your health depends on the flow of qi (energy) in your body.

According to TCM, this energy travels along invisible pathways, known as meridians. Meridians are found throughout your body, including your ears.

Ear seeds are placed on certain points, usually along meridian lines, to help clear up any qi blockages. In TCM, resolving these blockages may help with a variety of health conditions.

Ear seeding is an effective method for treating acute and chronic diseases without producing side effects.

Auriculotherapy is not just simply acupressure to unblock energy meridians of the body. Rather, ear acupressure stimulates the nerve connections between the ear and the central nervous system. By applying pressure to the correct points on the external ear triggers nerve impulse from the ear to the brain, thereby communicating powerful healing messages to the organ or system in which the health problem manifests. Upon stimulation, the brain releases pain-relieving protein molecules, endorphins, into the blood stream, soothing chronic pain and discomfort quickly and with no side effects.
