SOME OF YOUR BUSIEST MUSCLES
Most people recognize massage is 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.
The Figit for Your Digit Acupressure Ring is designed to massage out tension in muscles and tendons in the fingers, and provides relief for fingers with stiff joints, poor circulation, or tiredness from repeated motions.
THE FIGIT FOR YOUR DIGIT MASSAGER AND ACUPRESSURE
The Figit for Your Digit 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.
HOW TO USE THE FIGIT FOR YOUR DIGIT FINGER MASSAGER
Put the acupressure rring onto the intended finger, then push in and out with other fingers, causing it to roll along the finger surface, stimulating many fine acu-points. You may use more than one acupressure ring at the same time to suit your needs.
Massaging time: average 2 minutes per finger. The Figit for Your Digit does not hurt your fingers
Cleaning: just dip the ring into clean water mixed with mild detergent and gently rub to remove dirt.
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.
