Ear seeds are made of a Chinese herb called a vaccaria seed. They are attached to an adhesive & applied to specific points on the ear. They extend the effectiveness of your acupuncture treatment and can be used alone or following a treatment. Just squeeze these tiny seeds a few times a day to stimulate the acupuncture points. You can shower and sleep with them. Remove in 3-5 days by peeling them off like a band-aid and dispose in the trash. It’s like take home acupuncture!
