When You're Not Getting a Good Night's Rest...Try Ear Seeds!
The Science Behind Ear Seeds and Insomnia & Sleep Disorders

At the end of the study, there were statistically significant improvements in the legitimate ear seeds group in dimensions of:
Overall sleep quality score
Another study found that ear acupressure improved the sleep quality of cancer patients who were experiencing sleep disturbances.
One more study sought to understand the effects of the stimulation of ear seeds on sleep in older females; participants who stimulated their ears by applying gentle pressure on the seeded ear points three times a day reported better sleep quality than participants whose ears were seeded but no pressure was applied.
