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.
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.
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 this EarSeeds Auriculotherapy Certification Course easily charge $25 to $60 for an Ear seeds treatment and their clients/patients are happy and eager to pay for it. That is what comprehensive, in-depth training can do for you.Imagine being THE person known in your community for your expert skills in this area. How would it feel knowing you have a new, powerful tool in your healing toolbox that allows you to help people quickly, naturally, and effectively?Imagine all the creative ways you could use this very travel-friendly modality, and how this knowledge, confidence, and reputation could become part of the financial security you want in your life!

"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"
"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 nurse massage therapist"
"Great instructor who was extremely knowledgeable on the subject."
"I was completely blown away with how much auriculotherapy helps with pain, anxiety and weight loss!"
"WOW! I am very satisfied with what I am learning"
"Everything is precise, and detailed explanations of the parts, and points enable me to absorb the information clearly. 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. Thank u Elie."
"I highly recommend this course"
"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."
"The course was awesome!"
"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.”

Elie Goldschmidt, L.Ac. had already graduated from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and worked as a licensed acupuncturist for nearly 18 years when he dreamed up the idea of EarSeeds.com.
Elie knew that well-designed auriculotherapy products and training programs would allow more people to experience the benefits of this powerful, proven, and fascinating health modality.
Elie then turned to his wife Tova, who’d spent 18+ years as a product, fashion, and branding designer in the NYC fashion industry. Tova knew that to make people realize ear seeds were amazing, they’d also have to look beautiful.
Together, Elie and Tova have been successfully sharing Ear Seeds with the world since 2014.
