What is Auriculotherapy?

Auriculotherapy is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is defined as the stimulation of specific points on the ear in order to have a therapeutic effect elsewhere in the body. There are hundreds of points on the ear in a pattern that roughly represents a microsystem of the whole body, including both its physical and emotional aspects. Acupressure, acupuncture, and electrical stimulation all stimulate the same points and are all considered auriculotherapy. Auricular acupressure is often described as reflexology for the ear.

What Are Ear Seeds?

Ear seeds are tiny seeds or pellets that are applied to the energy points in the ear to stimulate the points naturally and non-invasively. Ear seeds can be used as a stand-alone treatment or as support for another treatment.

How Do Ear Seeds Work?

Small black seeds from the Vaccaria plant are placed on the ear and secured with adhesive tape over specific energy points. The continuous mild pressure this produces is then amplified by a few seconds of fingertip massage every few hours.


Auriculotherapy is a powerful tool and you can probably get results without a certification course, but imagine how much better your results could be if you could truly READ the ear - examine the landscape, color changes, bumps, veins, valleys and curves - and recognize what it's telling you!

Imagine being able to create a customized protocol for your client/patient based on their specific needs... diving deeper into the root of their symptoms and seeding specific points more intentionally and with more confidence. This is a game-changer, both in the way you apply ear seeds and in their effectiveness. Watch a few quick videos to hear what ear seeds have done for people.

You are already committed to helping people, and you know that if you are not earning money then you are not going to be able to continue helping people for long. When you see the results the ear seeds deliver, you will quickly grow the confidence and language necessary to convey that value to your clients/patients.

Students and graduates of the EarSeeds Auriculotherapy Certification Course easily charge $25, $40, even $60 for an EarSeeds treatment and their clients/patients are happy and eager to pay for it. That is what proper, comprehensive training can do for you.

Who should NOT invest in this program? This course is NOT for you if...

  • You aren't ready to up-level your knowledge. We understand that you are busy and learning a new modality in-depth takes time. That's why we deliver the content in manageable, weekly parts, don't overload you with repetitive or unnecessary information, and give you a full year AFTER the course is delivered to complete the coursework. Only you know if you are ready to invest the time and money in yourself and your practice.
  • You are JUST taking this course for the CE contact hours. This is NOT just a CE course. It is a comprehensive, transformational training program that you will be able to use to increase your knowledge, add new skills to your practice and help more people. This course was developed and priced as a Complete Auriculotherapy Certificate Training Program. CE contact hours were added nearly a year afterwards as a FREE bonus and to show credibility for the course content.

Who SHOULD invest in this program? This course is for you if...

  • You are ready to make this investment in yourself because you know adding this modality to your practice will develop your skills and confidence. You are ready to take the leap to become a Certified EarSeeds Practitioner.
  • You are currently using EarSeeds in your holistic practice, but you don't feel confident charging enough for this service. With the knowledge you will gain from this program, you will feel confident using auriculotherapy and charging appropriately for it.
  • You are currently using EarSeeds confidently in your holistic practice, but you know there is much more to learn. We have had life-long auriculotherapy practitioners who have studied with the top names in auriculotherapy tell us they learned things in our program they hadn't learned elsewhere. To truly master a skill and help the most people, you must keep learning.
  • You have a holistic practice or business but you are currently NOT using EarSeeds in it. Perhaps you've seen EarSeeds on the news or in social media, or maybe you just know that the time spent to learn this modality properly will be a worthwhile investment in yourself and the growth of your practice. Many of our Certified Practitioners had never used EarSeeds prior to investing in this course and they are now confidently charging $40-$60 per session and experiencing tremendous results for their clients/patients.
  • You don't have a holistic practice or business yet. Auriculotherapy is an incredible natural healing modality that can impact your life and the lives of those around you. It is an excellent complement to a holistic lifestyle that includes exercise, meditative practices and natural, whole foods. The degree to which you can integrate your learning into your life and the lives of those around you is immeasurable.

Auriculotherapy Is a LIFE-LONG Skill

Once learned, your auriculotherapy skills will always be with you! You, your family and your practice will continue to benefit in ways you can't begin to imagine now. What would it be worth to invest in yourself, in your knowledge and in your practice to master this life-long skill?

Here's what students and graduates are saying about the EarSeeds Auriculotherapy Certification course...

“Loved the course! I had no idea that so many points existed on the ear, and that so many conditions can be eased by the use of ear seeds. The course was highly informative and with a relaxed presentation of the information. Thank you for the opportunity"! – Jacquelyn

"I am having so many success stories from people not having pain that they have had for 15+ years! This is by far the most exciting thing I have learned in my 13-year practice as a massage therapist." - Deb Gerads

"I was completely blown away with how much auriculotherapy helps with pain, anxiety and weight loss! Great instructor who was extremely knowledgeable on the subject." ~ Mandy W.

“WOW! I am very satisfied with what I am learning. Everything is precise, and detailed explanations of the parts & points enable me to absorb the information clearly. Can’t wait to learn more. Thank u Elie.” – Annalyn

“I am a holistic health practitioner. Prior to your course, I had studied auriculotherapy, but it was not as comprehensive and detailed as your course content. The entire course content and delivery was very well organized, structured and presented. This course has given me more confidence in terms of auricular diagnosing the particular ear pathology in order to better customize the correct treatment. I highly recommend this course.” – Loey

“I’m a social worker and I had a desire to find alternative ways to help children that do not require the use of medication, if possible. The course was awesome! I loved the flashcards, the videos, and the ability to ask various questions. I have already been able to assist children and myself with issues of concern in a non-evasive format. Most definitely take this course. You will learn a lot, it is easy to understand with a vast amount of information and resources available, and the Facebook group is great.” – Melisa

“It was an absolute pleasure to take this course. The presentation of each module and the support material was wonderful and better than any "hands-on, attend-in-person" class I've ever taken. I looked forward to each module when it came out every week. I can't wait for the additional videos and any new material Elie and Tova come up with. Thank you so much for all of your work to bring Auriculotherapy and Ear Seeds to everyone!” – Sonda

“I purchased your kits several years ago to sell in my studio because I was intrigued and have always had an interest in acupuncture and auriculotherapy, but recently taking your course was phenomenal!! Loved it!!! Elie, you have a gift of breaking things down and making it easy and fun to learn! I am seeing over 40 people weekly for ear seeds, and that keeps growing! I am expanding my hours to accommodate and looking to add a person because I have several retirement homes/nursing homes looking to have me come to treat the residents and I don't have time. This has truly been a blessing to our community!” - Gianna

“I thoroughly enjoyed this course! I originally just wanted to help my family, friends, and myself; but I may have a job opportunity! I just started seeing an Integrative MD, I was telling her about this course, and she was very interested and wants to meet with me to discuss it more. Who knows where this may lead!” – Karen
