Bian stones were generated during the Cretaceous period when meteorite’s impacted the earth. Healing stone therapy is the most ancient form of medical treatment & health care in China, even pre-dating acupuncture. It has been used at Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) hospitals for many years.
Acupuncture was reportedly born when soldiers who were shot with arrows reported to have ‘very good feelings’ on some parts of their body when they were shot somewhere else.
The Bian-stone is an ancient tool, classified as the first technique of the five major ancient medical practices. It plays an important role in Chinese medicine. Test results show that a strong field of energy exists in the Bian stone called infrared remote sensing.
How does it work?
Chemical analysis shows that there are more than thirty trace elements within the stones such as Sr, Ti, Cr, Mn, Zn, Ca, Fe, P, K, & Na – elements which are beneficial & necessary for healthy human beings. When rubbed against the body, the stone gives out ultrasonic impulses, with measurements that are far in excess of other tested materials.
The stone dredges the human body’s channels, improves the body’s microcirculation, eliminates heat & poisons in human body & removes unnecessary fats. Bian stone’s work on the blood circulation, making it run faster. This is purifying the blood & the blood vessels. By so doing, it ensures increased oxygen & nutrition supply to various body organs.
