What is Acupressure?
The ancient practice of acupressure, often referred to as the "Father of Acupuncture", has been one of the primary forms of treatment in Chinese Medicine for thousands of years.  This healing technique works by balancing the energies of the body by carefully stimulating specific trigger points along the meridians - the energetic channels that run throughout the body and inform the health of our five key organs.  

Hayo'u founder Katie Brindle says "I cant wait for you to try this new tool, which can be used for a multitude of physical and emotional concerns, from deep muscle tension, nerve pain or shoulder stiffness, to insomnia, irritability or weight imbalances".
How to Use The Bian Stone Body MassagerThe Bian Stone Body Massager tool can be used for pressing and kneading the trigger points as deeply or softly as desired, working not only on the body but also on the reflex zones on the hands and feet to stimulate all the organs of the body effortlessly, enabling the channels to be cleared of toxins and nourished by the free flow of blood and qi – bringing that all-important balance back to the body and allowing it to heal naturally.  

Why Bian Stone?

Bian Stone is the most effective crystal for acupressure, and was used by ancient Chinese doctors thousands of years ago as it was believed to have supreme healing abilities.  Today modern science confirms what the ancients understood.  Chemical analysis shows that Bian Stone contains over 40 minerals and trace elements, which are beneficial for optimum health. Bian stone emits ultrasound pulsations, far infrared rays, and negative ions, all of which are known for their antioxidant and anti-aging effects on our cells and DNA.
