Did you know about ear seeds? This is another modality used to enhance and prolong the effects of acupuncture. Ear seeds are an additional take-home tool for patients.
These small seeds from the Vaccaria plant are placed over specific acupuncture points in the ear with a piece of adhesive tape. The seeds stimulate the acupoint by creating mild pressure. Patients can stimulate these points while at home! They can be worn for 3-5 days.
Whether you want to stimulate a point to aid in anxiety or appetite reduction…Ear seeds are a great option to keep the treatment effects going!
