How does a Mudra work?
The Mudra applies pressure to the LI4 pressure point, which is right between the thumb and forefinger. This is a spot where muscles, ligaments, and tendons all come together. By applying pressure to this point you are releasing endorphins, natural painkillers, to the brain. According to and based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, pressure on this point increases circulation, alleviates headaches/migraines and pain and restores health. The mudra can be used as a tool throughout the day for you to be in control of your own health. Wear it for up to 3 hours a day, whether it’s 10 minutes here and there throughout the day, or all at once.
*Pregnant woman are advised not to use a Mudra - pressure on the LI4 may induce labor.

How effective is the LI4 acupressure point?
(Johns Hopkins University, August, 2011 ) Magnetic acupressure was applied to the LI-4 meridian to patients suffering from bone marrow pain. Severe pain decreased dramatically for those receiving magnetic acupressure at the LI-4 acupuncture point. Johns Hopkins stated that proper stimulation of LI4 is effective in relieving headaches, pain of the eyes, toothaches, jaw pain, and pain of the limbs and bones.
We constantly get feedback that pressure on the LI4 point helps with relief.
How do I know what size Mudra to get?
The small Mudra is for children and women who have very petite hands with little muscle between the thumb and forefinger. A medium is for a large range of hands - including most women. The large is for very muscular hands, larger hands and most men. Customers send us photos of their hands next to measuring devices all the time - don't be shy to email a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How long should I wear a Mudra for?
It's your personal preference! It can be effective within minutes and can stay on for several hours a day. We like to wear a Mudra for twenty minutes here and there, and treat them sort of like a pair of sunglasses - always in a case in our bag.
Is it okay to wear a Mudra even if I do not have any tension/issue?
Absolutely. It is beneficial to have energy circulating in your body any time. The sustained pressure on the LI4 is preventative, too.
Do you have any additional products for different pressure points on the body?
How long does it take for my item to arrive?
We hand-make pieces here in the US and are always transparent about your order time. Sometimes we can ship next day, other times we might need a week. We make each piece with love. Email us with any time sensitive orders. We want our clients to be happy.
Where can we purchase your pieces?
We want to keep costs down for our customers so we try to keep our jewelry sold on our site, direct-to-consumer, so that there is not a classic retail mark-up. We love to travel and pop-up at fun events and shows throughout the year. and are usually US-based. Reach out if you have a recommendation as to where we might "pop-up" next!
