The acupoints of the Acuball®† stimulate your Central Nervous System, like acupuncture does, to release natural painkilling, relaxing and mood-enhancing chemicals like enkephalins and endorphins. Those who use the Acuball in bed before retiring for the evening, often report enhanced feelings of relaxation and a deeper, more restful sleep.
The Acuball is used by the National Ballet of Canada, professional athletes in the NBA and NHL as well as hospitals and rehabilitation clinics.
Heatability – The Acuball mini can be used heated or not. It should only be heated up by placing it in boiling water for 12 minutes. NEVER microwave the Acuball Mini – it will melt. Heat expands muscles, causing blood vessels to open up, bringing more blood to tight areas. This increased blood flow flushes out accumulated wastes, calming irritated nerves and loosening muscles back to their normal relaxed state.
Spine Align Belt for Releasing Tight Vertebrae - The Spine Align Belt, a precision-moulded groove running around the middle of the Acuball allows you to place the back of your neck directly on the Acuball, opening and loosening your spine one vertebra at a time. This helps to ‘free up’ your spine all the way from your low back up to the top of your neck. The acupoints at the side of the Spine Align Belt also give an acupressure treatment to the important postural muscles running along both sides of your spine (the erector spinae muscles), allowing them to open and relax.
Dual Stimulation Zones for Large & Small Muscles - The zone on the bottom of the Acuball has multiple smaller acupoints for doing lighter work like releasing tight muscles in your scalp, face and temples. The larger acupoints on the rest of the Acuball are for deeper work like loosening larger muscles in your neck, legs, hips and low back.
