While Hegu acupressure rings were developed for the purpose of relieving occasional headaches, they have additional benefits. Hegu acupressure rings can be used to relieve every day stress and provide relaxation.
As many of us lead very busy lives with the stresses of family, work, and responsibilities, it is often difficult to relax both in our bodies and our minds. Just like pain, stress results from energy stagnation.
When four rings are used, combining the Hegu points on the hands with the Thaichong points on the feet (between your big toe and second toe, it opens what is known as The Four Gates. The Four Gates powerfully move energy, or “Qi”, throughout the body, resulting in stress reduction and relaxation. Keeping Qi moving freely throughout the body will help to prevent stress and promote continued relaxation.
