Auriculotherapy is the stimulation of specific points on the ear, which is believed to be a microsystem of the entire body. Ear seeds are used for auriculotherapy.
These small black seeds from the vaccaria plant are secured on the ear with a piece of adhesive tape over specific acupressure points.
The continuous mild pressure they exert is amplified by stimulating the seed or pellet with a few seconds of fingertip massage every few hours.
On rare occasion, some extremely sensitive people may experience slight nausea or dizziness upon application. This should disappear within the first few minutes after application.
*The tan tape ear seeds contain latex and should not be used by those with a latex allergy.*
