I just ordered one of these Aculief headache and tension relief clips for myself, and while it hasn’t arrived yet, I’m showing it to you now just in case you too have had a giant knot lodged under your shoulder blade emanating random lightning bolts of pain for over a week now, and are more interested in trying any piece of gadgetry or brand of snake oil ASAP than waiting to hear what I think of my Aculief post-Prime shipping and 3-day trial period.
Aculief does not have glowing reviews across the board, but it does have a loyal following and is a relatively inexpensive, and drug-free, option that might work for you if you suffer from migraines or chronic headaches. The placement of the Aculief wearable clip between your thumb and forefinger targets your body’s LI4 acupressure point.
The device’s makers report that LI4 is one of the most powerful acupressure areas of your body, and has been a key point in acupressure treatments for headache and tension relief for thousands of years. Aculief also cites a Johns Hopkins / University of Maryland study that says, “Proper stimulation of the LI4 is effective in relieving headaches, pain of the eyes, toothaches, jaw pain, and pain of the limbs and bones.”
