SOME OF YOUR BUSIEST MUSCLES
Most people recognize massage as a great way to relax and loosen tight muscles, but few give thought to one of the busiest muscle groups in this day and age...fingers. Whether you work in an office, work in the trades, or are even an active retired person, nary a moment goes by without you using your fingers.
These Acupressure Rings are designed to massage out tension in muscles and tendons in the fingers, and provide relief for fingers with stiff joints, poor circulation, or tiredness from repeated motions.
WHY IS IT CALLED THE ACCUPRESSURE RING?
The Acupressure Ring’s many rounded angles apply acupressure to key acu-points in the fingers. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, this stimulates not only the local points receiving the pressure, but other body areas connected through meridians, channels whereby Xi, or “Chi”, flows throughout the body.
A SILVER AND GOLD-PLATED PAIR
These Acupuncture Rings are sold by the
pair, both made of stainless steel, with one
ring gold-plated, the other silver-plated.
In both Acupuncture and Acupressure,
different metals are believed to have
different effects on the body. Gold
is traditionally used for tonification
(increasing Chi), and silver is for
sedation (decreasing Chi).
Either way, both will stimulate and
soothe your fingers, leaving them
relaxed and ready to take on activity.
Ideal for the budget-conscious, this set does not come with any case or packaging. Alternatively, see also our Acupuncture Ring with Case.
Anyone who has undergone massage will tell you about the spreading relaxation, increased warmth in local areas, and the stimulation of circulation they experience. Medical studies indicate changes in such things as blood flow; epidermal and cardiovascular function, pain threshold, muscular tone; psychological variables that are so important to maintaining a healthy metabolism. Increases in perspiration and the movement of muscles or internal organs are palpable benefits. In the theories of acupuncture, reflexology and related fields, massage applied to important areas (acupoints) can work to rebalance the flow of Chi in the body, which is why practitioners in those fields use massage techniques.
RESEARCH ON HEALTH EFFECTS
Scientific studies indicate that massage may result in significant relief of pain, in flexibility, in improvements in sleep, reduction in anxiety, and other factors. More effectiveness is usually seen when massage is combined with overall good health disciplines like exercise, healthy psychological practices, nutrition, and adquate rest. Many recognize massage as a good adjunct to fitness and weight-loss programs, for relief of stress, or of constipation. Pressure massage is the mainstay of reflexology, while traditional and alternative medicine considers that harmonizing the Chi through massage leads to long-term health outcomes such as strength, resistance to disease, and a better quality of life.
