Complementary and alternative medicine practices have become widely used and accepted in the Western world as supplements and/or alternatives to conventional healthcare and medical methodology. Many alternative medical practices utilize natural therapies and/or ancient techniques such as acupuncture, acupressure, and magnet therapy.
Acupressure has long been recognized as an effective method for helping a variety of symptoms affecting the human body. The application of non-invasive pressure at specific points on the human body, particularly at recognized acupuncture points, can potentially help relieve pain and/or discomfort locally and at various other locations throughout the body.
Our clip provides an advantageous method for allowing practitioners and self-treating users to utilize acupressure theory at home. By providing a device capable of finite adjustment of pressure, both by altering the contact point and the amount of force exerted by the device allowing for an effective and accurate acupressure alternative. Furthermore, the ease of use associated with these clips allow for utilizing acupressure by both practitioners as well as the users outside of a physician’s care. The following are some examples of symptoms that may be alleviated by using the clips and the acupuncture points associated with providing potential relief of those symptoms as demonstrated in video.
