Acupuncture has become something of a household name and holistic care buzzword over the past couple of years. Many people are turning to acupuncture to heal various ailments without having to turn to pharmaceutical medications.


One of the ailments that acupuncture has become most popular for healing is migraines and other pains that originate in the head. This has been seen with different piercings being said to alleviate head pains.

One of the newest ways that holistic healing is being used is in ear seeding. If you have no idea what that is, let us help you out.

What Is Ear Seeding?



You might have gone for acupuncture in the past to get help with some ailments that just weren’t being cleared up with the pills and potions that your doctor prescribes when you visit. You may even have performed acupressure massages on yourself to help get rid of a headache or anxiety.


If you have done any of these things, you will likely try (and love) ear seeding. Your ear is filled with acupressure points, much in the same way that your hands and feet are, and can trigger the nervous system when pressure is applied to these areas.



Ear seeding is the process of attaching Vaccaria seeds or metal balls to the ear on the specific pressure points that you need help with. The balls adhere to the ear over the dermis layer and do not penetrate the skin.

The balls or seeds will then be left on the ear until they fall off on their own, by which time you can safely assume that they have done their work.


Who Should Do It?



There is truly no limitation as to who should try ear seeding. It is a non-invasive treatment that does not require much aftercare and can target multiple different areas of your nervous system to help alleviate ailments.

Of course, any trauma to the skin, whether invasive or non-invasive, can irritate the area, and you should monitor your ears closely in the first couple of hours after having ear seeding done to ensure that you are not reacting badly to the procedure.




Once the seeds have been placed in the ear, you can massage them periodically to stimulate the seeds’ effects further stimulate the effects that the seeds will have on your nervous system. The seeds should stay in for up to a week after placement.

The Bottom Line




Ear seeding can be used on its own or in conjunction with things such as acupuncture and reflexology. It is simply another procedure that can aid a person in healing without having to use pharmaceutical medication.

Any person can have ear seeds placed as it is a non-invasive procedure with very few side effects to speak of.
