Ear Seeds for Sleep

Ear Seeds for Sleep

If you're struggling to get a good night's sleep, you might be surprised to learn that there might be a simple, natural solution that can help: ear seeds. Ear seeds are small pellets that are attached to the ear with an adhesive sticker. They're placed on specific points on the ear, and when pressed, they stimulate the release of endorphins and help to promote relaxation. In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at how ear seeds may help you sleep better.

How Ear Seeds Work
Ear seeds work by stimulating pressure points on the ear. These pressure points are connected to the nervous system, and when stimulated, may help to promote relaxation. The seeds are usually made from a metal bead covered in 24k gold or silver plating. Once the ear seeds are in place, you can gently press on them whenever you need a boost of relaxation.

Benefits of Ear Seeds for Sleep
There are many benefits of using ear seeds for sleep. First, they're a completely natural way to promote relaxation. They don't involve taking any pills or supplements, and they don't have any side effects. Additionally, ear seeds are very convenient—you can take them with you wherever you go and use them whenever you need to relax. Finally, ear seeds are relatively inexpensive, especially when compared to other methods of promoting relaxation, such as massage or acupuncture. 

If you're having trouble sleeping, ear seeds could be a helpful solution. They're natural, convenient, and inexpensive. If you're interested in trying ear seeds for yourself, buy an ear seed kit today. Happy sleeping!

What are acupuncture ear seeds, and how do they work?

Rooted in the principles of Chinese medicine, ear seeds are an ancient tool that may support a broad spectrum of health concerns by way of aiding restful sleep, assisting emotional well-being, helping you to relax, and supporting your immunity, focus, energy levels, and digestion. 

Ear seeds are a form of auriculotherapy, which is the stimulation of specific points of the ear to support physical and emotional health concerns. They are a needle-free form of acupuncture that have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years. TCM teaches that the ear is a microsystem of the whole body, where certain points on the ear correspond to different organs or body parts. Energy pathways (or ‘qi’ or vital life energy) pass through the ear and ear seeds stimulate specific points which send an abundant flow of energy to the related organ or area that needs attention. Think of it like reflexology, but for the ears instead of feet.

Ear seeds also create continual, gentle pressure on nerve impulses in the ear which send messages to the brain that certain organs or systems need support. The brain will then send signals and chemicals to the rest of the body to support whatever ailments you’re experiencing, releasing endorphins into the bloodstream, relaxing the nervous system, and naturally soothing pain and discomfort. 

Are acupuncture ear seeds safe to use at home?

Ear seeds are a non invasive treatment which is safe and effective. Since they don’t require the use of needles, there is low risk of infection or bleeding. It is also a great way to introduce the benefits of acupuncture to those with needle phobia.

How should the ear seeds be applied?

- Clean ear thoroughly with facial cleanser or an alcohol swab - this removes natural oils, ensuring proper adhesion. Ensure the ear is dry before application.

- Focus on one protocol and identify acupoints by referencing the ear maps in your ear seed kit. You will be applying the seeds to one ear only.

- Using tweezers, carefully lift the edge of clear seed adhesive, hover over the desired area of application, and firmly press down with a finger to adhere.

- Seeds may be stimulated a few times a day by gently massaging in a circular motion. Seeds may be worn for a maximum of 5 days and cannot be reused. Remove with tweezers or fingernails. You can apply a new set on the other ear immediately or if applying to the same ear, please wait for 2 days.

How long will they last?

Ear seeds are single-use only and can be worn up to 5 days depending on the area of the ear where they’ve been placed. Before application, we suggest cleaning the area thoroughly with an alcohol swab or facial cleanser and allowing to dry completely for maximum adhesion. When applying, avoid touching the sticky side of the ear seed as it will not adhere properly. After 5 days of wear, remove seeds with your fingers or tweezers and allow the skin to heal for 2 days before applying a new set of seeds on the same ear. Alternatively, you can reapply immediately on the other ear.
