Q. What is the point of Ear Seeding?
A. Your ear is a microcosm of your body as a whole. You have hundreds of pressure points on the ear that correspond to different areas of the mind and body. When you apply pressure to the points, by pressing on an ear seed, the point sends signals to your brain to promote healing in that specific part of the body.
Q. Where and how do you place the Ear Seeds?
A. The treatment card enclosed, indicates the specific pressure points for your chosen treatment. Flip this card over for step-by-step instructions on how to apply the seeds or scan the QR code to watch our short instructional video.
Q. How do I know I have applied them correctly?
A. Follow the instructions and try to get as close as possible to the points indicated on the treatment card. However, don't worry if it is not exact. The ear seeds will still be effective if they are placed in the general area indicated.
Q. What do you do once the seeds are on?
A. In order to stimulate the pressure points, you need to gently massage the ear seeds, in a circular motion, three times a day or whenever you remember. This activates the points, which sends signals to your brain to promote healing.
Q. How long do the seeds last?
A. Ear seeds are single-use and we recommend wearing them for up to 5 days at a time. The seeds will slowly lose their stickiness and fall off themselves. After 5 days, we advise you to peel off any remaining seeds and dispose. You can re-apply a new set two days later.
Q. Can you wear the Ear Seeds in the shower?
A. Yes, the Ear Seeds are stuck on with a high quality adhesive and if you have cleaned the area on your ear with an alcohol swab before applying the seeds, they should not fall off easily. If you do find that a seed is falling off, simply remove it and apply a new seed two days later.
Q. Are there any side effects?
A. There are no known side effects to Ear Seeds, however they are not recommended for those with allergies to latex or adhesives. Avoid use of seeds on irritated skin or open lesions. Remember to always seek the advice of a qualified health practitioner when treating a medical condition.
