QUARTZ ACUPRESSURE PEN ELECTRICAL STIMULATION WITHOUT BATTERIES
Spark from quartz crystal creates low electrical charge for soothing tense muscles
Electro-acupuncture balances chi flow
With pointed and rounded interchangeable tips for different target areas
Needs no batteries, wires, or charging
CIRCUIT-FREE ELECTRO ACUPUNCTURE
If you’re interested in acupuncture, but are a little squeamish about being pierced with needles, this device is for you. Instead of needle insertion, the Quartz Acupressure Pen uses a tiny electrical charge to stimulate acupoints and balance the flow of Chi. And if you’re strictly western-minded, it relieves tension in sore muscles, providing a welcomed alternative to pain killers.
But the real uniqueness of the Quartz Acupressure Pen isn’t just that it uses electrical stimulation, rather that it generates it from a natural spark from the quartz crystal inside. With no batteries or wires required, this unit is the affordable and practical alternative to “electronic” electro-acupuncture.
2 INTERCHANGEABLE TIPS
The Quartz Acupressure Pen features two types of stimulation tips. The pointed tip is for areas requiring precision, such as targeted acupoints on the ear, hands, or other small areas. The rounded tip is for broader areas, such as the shoulders, back, or thighs. A little like having two massagers in one!
MORE ABOUT HOW THE QUARTZ ACUPRESSURE PEN WORKS
When pressed against the skin (around a painful muscle or area of the body), the device generates a low electronic pulse brought on by the spark of a quartz crystal, creating a piezoelectrical charge. The flow is about 6 millionths of an ampere at 18,000 volts for 12 millionths of a second. With a simple clicking of the pen’s spring loaded end, two crystals inside collide to release a precise galvanic pulse aimed at freeing your body's natural energy flow. It gives a tingling sensation, but is completely harmless.
BENEFITS OF USING THE QUARTZ ACUPRESSURE PEN
From the view of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the Quartz Acupressure Pen aims to normalize the body’s acupuncture meridians, which flow though the body. Unbalanced energy can cause physical difficulties with particular organs of the body associated with specific meridian lines. If the meridian energy flow is sluggish, the piezo discharge of the pen speeds it up, and if the energy flow in the meridian is too hyper, the aim is to slow it down.
The Quartz Acupressure Pen is also a natural approach to relieving tension in sore muscles that can cause pain in the back, limbs, neck, and even headaches. It is completely safe and has absolutely no side effects.

Acupuncture Points in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM):
Acupoints used in treatment may or may not be in the same area of the body as the targeted symptom. The TCM theory for the selection of such points and their effectiveness is that they work by stimulating the meridian system to bring about relief by rebalancing yin, yang and qi (also spelled "chi"). This theory is based on the paradigm of TCM, not that of science.
Body acupoints are generally located by a measurement technique that is calibrated according to their proportional distances from various landmark points on the body. Acupoint location usually depends on specific anatomical landmarks that can be palpated. There are nearly 400 basic acupoints on the meridians. Many of these basic points are rarely used. Some points are considered more therapeutically valuable than others, and are used very frequently for a wide array of health conditions.
Categories of body acupuncture points:
The Five Transport Points system describes the flow of qi in the channels using a river analogy, and ascribes function to points along this flowline according to their location.
The Five Phase Points system ascribes each of the five phases - wood, fire, earth, metal and water - to one of the Five Transporting points.
Xi-cleft points are the points on the channel where the qi and blood gather and plunge more deeply.
Yuan-source points are points on the channel from where the yuan qi can be accessed.
Luo-connecting points are located at the point on the channel where the luo meridian diverges.
Back-shu points lie on the paraspinal muscles on either side of the spine.
Front-mu points are located in close proximity to the respective organ.
Hui-meeting points are a category of points that are considered to have a "special effect" on certain tissues and organs.
