Dragon Acupuncture Ear Seeds: The Natural Solution for Pain Relief

If you’re familiar with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) or acupuncture, you’ve probably already heard of acupuncture ear seeds. Even if you’re not familiar with the two, you may have still heard of these seeds, simply because they’re everywhere nowadays!

Acupuncture ear seeds are an auriculotherapy tool rooted in TCM. These seeds, which are actually just fingernail-sized latex stickers containing a ripe seed, are placed carefully on the acupressure points in your ear related to your ailment in order to stimulate the relevant body part.

Ear seeds can cure or relieve the symptoms of various conditions, from seemingly minor issues like fatigue and dizziness to more serious problems like diabetes, insomnia, and cervical spondylosis.

Dragon Acupuncture Ear Seeds are a natural, quality solution for your pain and are a testimony to our expertise in TCM. Our ear seeds have been helping customers around the world overcome their ailments with the help of principles honed through centuries of practice and study enhanced by our expert team’s valuable inputs.

How Do Ear Seeds Work?

Ear seeds stem from auriculotherapy, a TCM method that uses acupressure points in the ear to impact other body parts. The method is commonly used to prevent and treat issues such as chronic pain, digestive disorders, vomiting, gynecological issues, and even substance abuse.

TCM practitioners use the ear as an indicator of the health of internal organs. The human ear has over 120 acupressure points and depending on the ailment, the relevant points may change shape, size, and color or become tender.

Doctors use these changes to figure out what the issue is and where exactly the seed needs to be placed. Once placed, the seed applies pressure on the spot to stimulate the relevant channel and ease symptoms without the need to puncture the skin.

Most acupuncture ear seeds, ours included, feature Vaccaria seeds attached to an adhesive sticker. Unlike seeds with magnets, steel, iron pellets, ceramic, titanium, etc., which may cause allergies, natural seeds are compatible with everyone as they’re organic.

“I learned about the effectiveness of TCM Acupressure when using it on my better half.

Frequently Asked Questions

When Was Dragon Acupuncture Founded?

Dragon Acupuncture was founded in 2016 by author and TCM expert P. Sze, with a focus on spreading awareness about simple, accessible, non-intrusive techniques rooted in oriental medicine that don’t involve needling. It’s one of two brands founded by the author—the other is TCM Tips, a blog that offers practical, research-backed, and expert-reviewed insights on TCM for the everyday reader.

How Should I Use Ear Seeds Together With My Acupuncture Treatment?

Ear seeds are often combined with traditional acupuncture to enhance and extend its benefits. At home, between acupuncture sessions, ear seeds can be placed on specific acupoints in the ear. The pressure from the ear seeds can stimulate the acupoints for several days, providing ongoing treatment. The ear seeds can also be gently massaged a few times daily to further stimulate the points. It is recommended to consult with a licensed acupuncturist to determine the most appropriate acupoints and usage for your specific needs.

How Should I Store The Ear Seeds?

You should keep them in cool places, so the patches do not dry up easily. And you should keep it away from children’s reach because the ear seeds are tiny. Once opened, please use them within 12 months. 

Do You Put Ear Seeds On Both Ears Or Just One? How Long Do You Leave Ear Seeds In The Ears?

We recommend applying the ear seeds on ONE ear at a time. After 2-4 days, remove the ear seed stickers and place fresh stickers on the other ear. By rotating the ear you apply the ear seeds, it allows the ear acupressure points to “rest” and remain sensitive to acupressure.
