Stop your headache - with your phone
January 29, 2010 in Health and Fitness
[prMac.com] Meridian, Idaho - Headaches are one of the most common and frustrating health problems in the world today. While pain pills may temporarily cover the symptoms, they do not address the cause of a headache. A medical acupuncture company has broken barriers with the research and development of modernized uses of acupuncture. In addition to computerized acupuncture tools for practitioners, they recently released an iPhone and iPod Touch app called Headache.
According to the app description, "The principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine teach that energy imbalances in the body often contribute to headache symptoms, and these imbalances can be corrected with pressure to specific points on the body." The application teaches not just about the headache you are experiencing, but goes on to identify the exact points to treat, and even has sound or vibration based treatment built in to the application if your device supports it.
"Selected by licensed acupuncturists, these points may bring you safe, natural, effective relief." They claim that no technical or medical skill is required, and self-treatment only takes a few minutes. At $1.99, not only is this an affordable alternative to popping pills, but it's a great tool to keep in your pocket for the next time you feel that pressure building in your head.
iPhone and 2nd Generation iPod touch 3.0 or later
Pricing and Availability:
Headache 1.0 is $1.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Healthcare & Fitness category.
