Moxa is a traditional form of thermotherapy used in Chinese medicine to relieve pain, improve circulation, & tonify qi. Your moxa stick is made from Chinese mugwort, which creates a gentle but penetrating heat that supports tissue metabolism & reduces inflammation because of its effect on blood flow.
Auricular acupuncture considers the ear a microcosm of the rest of the body, meaning you can treat every part of your body through minute pressure points in the ear. Ear seeds are a gentle, non-invasive way of stimulating acupuncture points in the ear & addressing various conditions from insomnia to pain.
Acupressure magnets are used to stimulate acupuncture points all over the body. They create a weak electromagnetic field that stimulates nerve endings & increases local blood flow. When placed on specific acupuncture points, they can be used as an alternative to acupuncture needles. Your kit includes gold magnets because traditionally they have been used to tonify & strengthen.
Many traditional cultures throughout the world have burned sage to cleanse & prepare a space. More recently, scientists have discovered that burning sage can purify the air in a way that eliminates bacteria & that the antibacterial effect can last for 30 days. So you can burn the sage in your kit to freshen your living space & promote relaxation & rejuvenation.
Our signature scent, “Balance,” is made from a combination of botanicals specifically selected by Chinese herbalist & Yinova Founder Jill Blakeway to balance yin & yang. Energetically, Cypress & Cedarwood encourage movement, whereas Sweet Orange, Patchouli & Geranium are grounding. This pairing creates a balance between activity & stillness, leaving you feeling focused & calm.
