About Ear Acupressure

Ear acupressure is a form of alternative medicine that involves applying pressure to specific points on the ear using the ear seeds. The theory behind auricular acupressure is that there are specific points on the ear that are connected to different parts of the body. Stimulating these pressure points is said to promote healing and balance in the body.

This type of auricular therapy is commonly used to treat a variety of conditions, such as headaches, stress, anxiety, and insomnia. While there is little scientific evidence to support these claims, many people believe in the effectiveness of ear seeds.
