Acupressure Information for CHI Focus Bands

Included below are the instructions that are enclosed in each Chi Focus Band package.

For more detailed acupressure point information -- see Illustration of Acupressure Hand Points >>>

Intended Use:

Yoga and chi The healing art of Acupressure originated in the Far East, thousands of years ago. Like Acupuncture, but without needles, Acupressure stimulates (or reduces) a series of points along pathways throughout the body known as Meridians.

These Meridians are believed to connect all of the body's organs and nervous system. Acupressure, like Acupuncture, is intended to increase the flow of energy through these meridians, improving physical health, mental focus, and emotional well-being.

Press the Chi Focus Band Acupressure tool on the desired Acupressure point for 5 - 30 seconds. The pressure should be enough so that you notice a change in sensation- but not so hard as to cause pain, bruising or skin damage. The amount of pressure required, the length of time stimulated, and the effectiveness of use will vary from person to person.

There are two types of pressure that can be applied using Acupressure. First, is the traditional steady pressure, known as "tonifying." Tonifying is meant to bring more energy into a specific area. The second technique involves reducing or "dispersing." This is done through gentle counter-clockwise massage of the Acupressure point. Dispersing is intended to decrease or release energy where there is a build up or stagnation.

By stimulating Acupressure points on the body (through both Tonifying and Dispersing), the intended result is to increase the flow of energy, or Chi, throughout the body. By unblocking these passageways and releasing built up tension and energy, the desired effects are increased emotional and physical well-being, a feeling of both mental and physical balance, reduced discomfort, and increased focus, energy, and calmness.
