Magnet Accu-patch Pellets(1 pc)
Accu-Patch and Magrain are commonly used for both ear and body points. The pellets produce a long-acting continuous compression effect on the point and according to the choice of metal, are said to harmonize and balance, enhance, or inhibit the effect of the point. Generally, ear pellets should be changed every 2 to 3 days to achieve the maximum effect (usually the ear or body will have adapted to the pressure after 3 days). Before applying ear pellets, the ear should be thoroughly cleaned with alcohol and the tape applied with a firm seal. A good ear chart shows the commonly used points. Descriptions of these points may be found in textbooks, charts or ear models, all available from Acuneeds. Accu-Patch or Magrain are commonly applied to these points in combinations.
Two popular treatment examples are for Smoking and Weight Loss. Using each of the corresponding ear organ points in conjunction with regular acupuncture treatment is also common. The patient is reminded to gently press or stimulate these pellets occasionally during the day or when a particular craving appears.
