Dr. Han usually place ear seeds on the precise points that will be effective for your condition. Ear seeds can be left on for up to 5 days, even when sleeping or showering. It may fall off by itself, depending on where it was placed. You can stimulate the seeds by pressing and rubbing them 3-4 times per day. Remove and dispose seeds one day before your appointment to allow enough time for a break.
