An Ancient Remedy Made New
For thousands of years, Eastern Medicine - as practiced across Asia has relied upon acupuncture and acupressure for the relief and cure of all sorts of ailments. In recent years, Western Medical Practitioners have begun to accept and acknowledge the validity of Eastern Medicine's claims.
Within Eastern Medicine, there are accepted treatments for many common ailments using finger massage on acupuncture points. The concept of Chi running through one's fingers has been around for thousands of years. The Anti Snore Acupressure ring is based upon these principles.
The ancient practice of acupressure works on balancing the body and health in a more natural way. If this is unbalanced or unstable and cannot flow freely through the body, the theory goes, one's health may be affected.
Eastern medical theory teaches that the two branches of the body's nervous system, the sympathetic branch is the part of the nervous system that mobilizes our bodies to respond to stress. It initiates the fight-or-flight response, a more yang part of the cycle. The parasympathetic branch replenishes and supports the body during rest, the yin part of the cycle. These two branches oppose and balance each other to create stability and health.
When the yin and yang are balanced within the body, all the body's functions are healthy. Health issues are caused by an imbalance between yin and yang.
There are 12 meridians located throughout the body. The ring applies pressure on the small intestine and heart meridians, which are paired organs and work together. The pressure clears the flow of energy, helping in the prevention of snoring, as well as giving a calming effect on the heart, leading to a reduction in anxiety, and a general feeling of relaxation and well-being, making it easier to fall asleep.
Now, we know that all of this does not sound very scientific. But at the 2016 Summer Olympics, you might have seen athletes with purple circles on their skin from cupping. Or maybe you know someone who swears by acupuncture for their back pain or herbal teas for colds.
More and more, people use practices like these from traditional Eastern medicine to not only fight ill health and mental and physical ailments. And if you really can't get to sleep, or your snoring is so bad that it keeps you (and your partner) awake at night, we think it's certainly worth a try.
