Using the concepts of Auricular therapy, vacaria seeds are attached to acupuncture points on the ear under tiny band-aids. The whole body can be influenced by this form of acupressure much like foot reflexology affects a person’s entire body. This is a great modality for children and those afraid of needles. People who suffer from stress and anxiety find this to be a helpful modality because they can press and activate a point during a stressful or anxiety-inducing event to help bring a sense of calm. The seeds remain on the skin from 3-5 days where they may naturally fall off or be removed by the practitioner.
