What Are Acupressure Massage Beads?
Acupressure beads are adhesive-like strips that can stick to a certain part of your ear, depending on the purpose of the treatment. An acupressure massage bead for weight loss is used behind the ear, targeting the Vagus nerve. All that you need to do to experience its benefits is to press the bead behind your ear for about 30-45 seconds whenever you feel the urge to eat.
How Do They Work?
The urge to eat happens when nerves in your body send messages to the brain to the brain telling it about depleted resources of nutrients and calories. It is this information processing in your brain that converts to the sensation of hunger. The Acupressure weight loss bead effects weight loss by sending misleading messages about body resources to your brain. When the bead is pressed during an urge to eat, the reflex stimulation of the Vagus nerve sends a feeling of fullness to the brain, thereby lessening hunger. It eventually helps in resisting the urge to eat frequently, and there is intake of the right amount of fat in your body. This results in weight loss.
