Ear seeds are often used to compliment acupuncture treatments or as a stand alone therapy.
Recent scientific studies have shown that ear treatment is a powerful effective way to help alleviate back pain!
A 2013 study showed the “group who completed the 4-week auricular point acupressure treatment had a 70% reduction in worst pain intensity, a 75% reduction in overall pain intensity, and a 42% improvement in disability due to back pain from baseline assessment.” -Evid Based Complement Alternat Med. 2013;2013:196978
A 2012 study concluded that “Auricular acupuncture was safe and demonstrated additional benefits when combined with exercise for people with chronic low back pain” -Clin J Pain. 2012 Mar-Apr;28(3):259-67.
