Auricular Therapy

Derived from Chinese Medicine, Ear Seeds are designed to be placed on the outer ear as a form of Auricular therapy. This modality has been used for hundreds of years to treat a wide variety of symptoms. 

Ear Seeds are a safe, non invasive healing modality that can be included in your self care routine.

In Chinese Medicine the ear is considered a micro system arranged in the pattern of an inverted fetus. Micro systems can be used to treat the entire body from a smaller area.

Auricular therapy with ear seeds incorporates acupressure to stimulate specific points which sends signals to the brain to regulate the nervous system.

Ear Seeds can be helpful for: anxiety, insomnia, headaches, stress, fertility, postpartum pain and digestive issues.

Mother Qi Ear Seeds are Magnets coated in 24k Gold with a clear latex free adhesive to stick them to the outer ear.

Ear Seed Tips

Clean and dry the ear before applying

With clean hands or tweezers peel the clear tape with the ear seed off from the packet and press to desired area.


For best adhesion and aesthetics try to keep the tape as flat as possible.

To stimulate the point press gently 3-4 times per day

Change the ear seeds every 3-5 days for maximum therapeutic effect. 

Let the Ear breathe for 6-8 hours before applying new ones

It may take a few tries to get use to the ear anatomy but dont worry just do the best you can.

Having a friend or family member apply them at first is a good idea to get the feel for where they go.

Of course if any irritation occurs remove the ear seed
