Bian stones formed about 65 million years ago when a meteorite collided with Earth in Shandong, China. Setting the example for acupuncture, these “needle stones” were heated to treat neck and back pain (like acupuncture needles).
Studies have shown that Bian can help stimulate blood circulation, relax muscles and joints, and aid anti-oxidation in our cells. We warm and apply Bian stone for its abilities both to store heat and to release trace minerals beneficial to the body.
The unique mushroom shape allows you to hold the tool between the fingers and maneuver and twist the disc to effectively massage along the muscles fibers and penetrate acu-points.
We recommend, warming up the Bian Mushrooms in hot water to fully utilize the stones benefits.

Wipe dry the warm stone and hold the stem between thumb and fingers. Manoeuvre and twist the disc, in upwards directions. Utilizing the concave shape and edges, follow the lines up and along the muscles fibers.
Pause on acu-points and lymphatic nodes and massaging in static circles. Use the edge of the disc to loosen tight knots especially around the jaw area and temples.
Repeat all movements 3 - 6 times on both sides. More if desired.
