- No Information
While this company states that they had conducted clinical trials to test the efficacy and efficiency of the bands, there is no actual information about the study on the website. It simply says that a study was conducted in accordance with good clinic practice guidelines set up by an international council that is not legitimately an authority on any medical testing.
This is not to say that the clinical trial in question did not take place or that it was unethical or somehow incomplete. However, it is to say that with very little information. Also, no actual methodology provided or links provided, it is difficult to say whether the 86% success rate within two minutes is a legitimate claim or not.
For example, if there were only 10 people in the trial and eight of them received pain relief, it is not necessarily valuable information. Especially if all 10 people suffered from only mild headaches. Alternatively if all 10 people were male or all 10 people were 20. The only way to evaluate the clinical trial is to be able to read the information about its but none was provided.
How It Works
Acupressure is actually an ancient Chinese healing method which uses techniques that are similar to acupuncture. In modern America Acupressure can also be referred to as pressure acupuncture. It has been shown to provide relief for those people who suffer from migraines. Today Acupressure focuses on specific energy channels within the body and applies pressure using a device to these points to try and unblock the different channels. Those who practice traditional Chinese medicine believe that acupressure can relieve migraine symptoms with limited research by Western doctors which indicates that acupressure improves circulation, reduces tension, relieves stress, and releases endorphins. Several acupressure points are thought to help relieve headaches.
