Ear Stapling by Dr Karen

What is Ear Stapling?

Ear stapling has been around for over 20 years and is fast becoming one of the most sought after innovative alternative methods to lose weight, an aid for migraine headache cessation, IBS, pain management, and smoking cessation. A small surgical stainless steel device is placed in the inner cartilage of the ear to target certain ear acupuncture points. These ear acupuncture points work to reduce your appetite, sugar cravings, tension, stress and migraine headaches. 


The ear staples curb your cravings, and cause you to reject the smell and taste of some foods. It reduces tension, headaches, and stress. You will be instructed how to make the staples work for you so that you get the most benefit.


How Does the Staple Work?

The ear staples signal your brain that you are satisfied and so it eliminates cravings for food, sugar, and it effectively reduces stress and can help with migraine headaches and TMJ.


How Long Does It Last?

The stapling varies per person how long it can last. They can be effective from 2 to 6 months. I have had clients that the staples worked for the entire 6 months.


Does It Hurt?

It is similar to having your ears pierced. Some say that it hurts for a few minutes and then subsides, and others say it does not hurt at all. 


Are there risks?

You are instructed how to give proper care of the staples.  There is a risk of infection associated with it, but good hand washing is very important!!


How to Care for Your Staples?

The after-care procedure is the same as when getting your ears pierced. You will be given after-care instructions and a kit to take care of the staples.


How Much Does This Cost?

$70.  NOTE: There is a discount given when 2 or more people get ears stapled at the same time.
