Swarovsky Bling and Ear Acupuncture – A Dazzling Approach to Better Health?


Auricular acupuncture, more commonly called “Ear Acupuncture” is popular with celebrities these days. It is being used to treat many conditions that come hand in hand with the Hollywood lifestyle; anything from weight loss, stress release, fertility, addiction, and pain relief.

And whenever Hollywood embraces something— it’s only a matter of time before the Glam-Du-Jour becomes popular with the rest of us. So why is auricular acupuncture so popular with celebrities anyway?

What is Auricular Acupuncture?

Auricular acupuncture is a TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) diagnostic and treatment system that seeks to balance the body’s function through stimulation of precise points on the ear. Tiny needles, seeds or metal beads (gold, silver, or magnetic) are placed on the ear, sending messages to the brain to stimulate the body’s natural healing process.

Auricular acupuncture safely and naturally supports stress release, weight loss, memory function, anxiety, fertility, and many other conditions. Because it is safe and effective— it not surprising that it’s so popular with the Hollywood elite.

Introducing SWAROVSKY ear seeds:

Inspired by the prevalence of Hollywood stars wearing auricular acupuncture seeds SWAROVSKY crystal ear seeds with 14K beads are now available to provide a little extra bling along with the auriculotherapy.

DIY kits are available complete with maps of the ear and suggested points for different conditions. Is this just another FAD?

Here is my opinion on this:

I think the SWAROVSKY crystals add a beautiful and sophisticated look to an auricular acupuncture treatment and so I offer them to my patients in my office. However, I’m not in favor if do-it-yourself kits without the guidance of a trained professional. If the beads are not applied precisely, the added sparkle is little more than jewelry. It certainly can’t hurt, but it most likely won’t help either.

If you want the health benefits of auricular acupuncture with the added sparkle, I recommend making an appointment with a licensed acupuncturist who can properly diagnose and treat the root cause of your health concern and monitor progress. The lasting benefits of working with a trained professional will outshine any fads.

Make an appointment today to find out if auricular acupuncture can help with your problems. If so, I’m happy to use SWAROVSKY crystals as part of your treatment!
