A needle-free application using ear reflex points that support the internal organs, reduce stress, and promote relaxation.
The vagus nerve passes through the ear and can be accessed with these points. This cranial nerve, also referred to as the gut-brain axis, connects our brain to our respiratory and digestive systems, and other parts of the body. Stimulating the vagus nerve activates our parasympathetic, or "rest and digest" nervous system mode. It can illicit healing and proper function of these important bodily systems, promote overall wellness, and support recovery from stress and trauma.
The ear contains dozens of other acupuncture reflex points, that correspond to various bodily systems and functions. These points can be understood through embryology, and the process in which we developed from a single cell to a multi faceted being. The genetic information of our entire bodies is contained in each cell, and in each microsystem of the body, including our ears, scalp, abdomen, and extremities.
Ear beads are a tiny pellet the size of a small seed that is placed over specific acupuncture points in the ear with adhesive cloth tape. They can be worn for a few days to a week if desired. Ear seeds can also be applied after your acupuncture to prolong the effects of your treatment.
