Have you ever wondered what those sometimes colorful wristbands that many athletes wear especially during competition time? Chances are they are wearing what are called “chi bands.” A chi band is a negative ion and acupressure bracelet device that can be used to stimulate pressure points on the wrist or hand. The Chi Focus Band has been designed using the principles of ancient Eastern medicine that seeks to optimize the flow of the natural energy field in the body called the Chi or Qi. The negative ions on the wristband as well as the embedded acupressure device stimulate the pressure points on the wrist and the hand. The wristband is usually made of 100% surgical grade silicone and can easily slip over your hand. They are thoroughly washable, odorless and durable.
The Acupressure and Negative Ion Wristband brings the advantages of the healing art of acupuncture from the Far East but without the needles, in this instance. Through acupressure, a series of points along the body known as meridians are stimulated. These so-called Meridians are believed to connect all the organs of the body to the nervous system. Through the use of acupressure, the flow of energy via these meridians is increased, resulting in an improvement in the person’s physical health, mental faculties and emotional well being.
To get the full benefits from your acupressure wrist band, press the Chi Focus Band Acupressure tool on the desired acupressure point in your hand or wrist for 5 - 30 seconds. The pressure should be strong enough so that you can notice a change in the sensation - but not so hard as to cause pain, bruising or any skin damage. The amount of pressure applied, the length of stimulation time and the degree of effectiveness of the tool will vary from person to person, depending on the basic state of one’s health.
Stimulating the acupressure points on the body will increase the flow of energy. When these passageways of energy are unblocked, tension is likewise released resulting in a state of emotional and physical balance and well-being.
There are many advantages to wearing an Acupressure/Negative Ion Wrist Band. Students, professors and cerebral workers report that they are able to maintain a longer attention span and a sharper level of intellectual prowess during class hours and periods of analysis while wearing the Chi Focus Band. On the other hand, amateur and professional athletes claim intensified levels of energy, stamina and heightened performance capacity when they use the Chi Bands.
Those suffering from certain medical conditions like nausea, induced nausea like motion-sickness, also report diminished symptoms when they wear a Chi Focus Band and after activating the acupressure device. Other wearers of the Acupressure and Negative ion Wristband describe feelings of calmness and a lessened level of nervousness when using the bracelet.
