Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 19, 2012
HeadEase®, the original drug-free alternative for head pain, is now available nationwide at http://www.headeaserings.com. HeadEase is a new product that alleviates head pain by stimulating a specific acupressure point known as Hegu, long used in Eastern medicine to provide head pain relief. Consisting of two stainless steel rings, HeadEase applies pressure on Hegu to reduce or alleviate primary headaches or head pain, including toothaches, earaches and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) in approximately 20 minutes.
“Headaches are prevalent in people of all ages. We’ve introduced a safe and effective, non-drug treatment,” said Mary Jane Neumann, HeadEase creator, board certified and licensed acupuncturist and owner of Ginkgo Acupuncture LLC. “I developed HeadEase because I’m a mother and acupuncture professional. There are many people like me who are looking to treat their headaches with something other than drugs. With this product, we are filling the need for head pain treatment solutions that are easy-to-use, effective and non drug-based.”
What is HeadEase?
HeadEase consists of two stainless steel rings that are placed on an acupressure point on each hand known as Hegu, the most effective and important point on the body for head pain. Hegu is found on the back of each hand, near the v-shaped junction of the thumb and index finger.
To use, place one HeadEase ring on the Hegu point of each hand. The rings should be worn for approximately 20 minutes. HeadEase is working when a dull “healing-ache” can be felt. Ideally HeadEase should be used while in a relaxed position, however daily activities can be conducted during use.
How Does HeadEase Work?
HeadEase is based on traditional Chinese medicine and the understanding that humans have vital energy, or “Qi” (chi), that travels throughout people’s bodies. When this energy is flowing freely, people experience health and well-being, but when it stagnates, people experience “dis-ease” and pain. The aim of acupressure is to remove energy blockages so that the body returns to a normal flow and can maintain wellness.
“I put on HeadEase and went about my business expecting to not feel any relief. Within about 15 to 20 minutes, I realized that not only was my headache not getting worse…it was gone,” said Maggie Testore. “I couldn’t believe it. No pain. No drugs. Just relief. I thought my afternoon would be lost but instead, I was able to help the kids with their homework and get dinner on the table.”
HeadEase also can be used to relieve stress and provide relaxation. Today’s fast-paced lifestyle can lead to stress associated with family, work and ever-growing responsibilities, which can make it difficult to relax both the body and mind. Just like pain, stress results from energy stagnation.
When four HeadEase rings are used together, combining the Hegu points on the hands with the Taichong points on the feet (between the big toe and second toe), it opens what is known as The Four Gates, which powerfully move energy throughout the body resulting in stress reduction and relaxation. Keeping energy flowing freely will help to prevent stress and promote continued relaxation.
HeadEase is available in small, medium and large and fits hands of all sizes. Each package includes one set of HeadEase rings and costs $19.99. HeadEase can be ordered online at http://www.headeaserings.com. Anyone can use HeadEase, with the exception of pregnant women because stimulation of the Hegu point may promote uterine contractions.
