Rare natural earth magnets with a touch of vitamin C are adhered to the skin by a small, circular plaster. Powerfully but discretely stimulates specific acupuncture points for balance in physical and mental health.
Step 1 | Locate. Locate the point by using the instructions on the Point Prescription card insert. The point will often be tender which indicates an active acupressure point.
Step 2 | Swab. Included in your pack are 4 alcohol swabs. Simply tear open one of these and pull out the square swab. Use this to clean all acupressure points in preparation for placing the Freckle. Cleaning each point helps it adhere to the skin, making it stay in place for longer.
Step 3 | Stick. Once the point is clean and dry, carefully remove the freckle from its backing paper and stick over your located acupressure point. Gently press in place and ensure all edges of your Freckles are firmly stuck to the skin to prevent them from peeling off.
Step 4 | Press. Because the Acupressure Freckle is bio-magnetic, it naturally activates this point without the need to press. However, you can simulate this point for a boost at times of need by maintaining gentle pressure over each Freckle for 3-5 minutes, up to 3 x each day. Try closing your eyes, taking 5 deep breaths and apply a firm pressure to each Freckle.
Step 5 | Remove. Each Freckle should last between 3-4 days and should be peeled off at this time. You may also notice that the Freckle starts to break down into a fine powder which means it has reached its natural end. When this happens, remove the plaster and gently rub the remaining powder on the skin in circular motions under warm water until it has washed away. This further activates the thermal properties of Tourmaline and acts as a final boost to that acupressure point before removing and replacing.
Step 6 | Replace. Allow the skin 48 hours to breathe before placing another Freckle. Remember, each Freckle is single use.
The primary materials used to make the active component of the Acupressure Freckle have been combined for their natural, magnetic and thermal potential qualities. A very fine powder of Mica, Tourmaline and Germanium are combined with Elvan, Sunyak Stone, Charcoal and Vitamine C to give each Freckle an extra health boost.
Each Freckle emits negative ions (800-1000 anions) and far-infrared rays at the wavelength of 8-14 microns. This is comparable to the level emitted by a thick forested area. It therefore may help to improve metabolism, promote blood circulation and increase body temperature around that point. In short, it is a functional product to help aid health and balance in our body by gently and naturally stimulating specific acupressure points.
Far-infrared rays enhance circulation in the skin and may help modulate sleep, ease pain, protect against oxidative stress and relieve inflammation. These benefits are enhanced by the stone Tourmaline, which helps healing her penetrate deeper whilst producing soothing negative ions.
The role of acupressure derives from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) more than 2000 years ago, and the fact that it is still in use today is a testimony to its effectiveness in the treatment of many health complaints.
Acupressure uses gentle touch to activate our self-healing mechanism. Normally, Qi (vital energy) circulates smoothly and with vibrancy through the body. Blockage of this flow or a lack of Qi is considered to be the fundamental cause of illness and pain. Acupressure helps to correct these functional imbalances and restore the flow thus returning the body to a more natural state of well-being.
It uses precise finger placement and pressure over specific points along the body. These points follow specific channels, known as meridians – the same channels used in acupuncture. If done regularly, this method of self-care can create positive, sustainable changes to health and help to minimise recurrence of symptoms. Have a little patience with your body. It took a long time to get to a state that you began to reach out for help so it will inevitably take some time for it to begin to find its natural balance again.
