How Ease Works and the Science Behind It

First, let’s start with what Ease actually is. Ease is a lightweight, easy-to-grasp device that is held in the hands and pressed against the abdomen. Made of recycled plastics, Ease is built to last a long time and to be a consistent companion for your digestive needs. The design is inconspicuous so that you feel comfortable having it set out in your bathroom, or revealed at TSA in your luggage (we’ve all been there). Every centimeter of the device was intentionally designed so that each user can get relief, every time they use it. 

Now, let’s get into it! You may be wondering, how does Ease work? Well, through research, trial, and error, we found that because of Ease’s unique shape, size, and features, it can comfortably be pressed into a number of acupressure points that help a wide array of digestive issues symptoms. Particularly, Ease can be used to alleviate cramps during a menstrual cycle, Ease can be used to lessen pains from bloating, and lastly, Ease can be used to relieve constipation. That’s right––Ease will actually get things going when you need them to!

Ease is best used on acupressure points ST25 and CV6. You’ve most likely heard of CV6 before, even if you didn’t know its actual acupressure title. CV6 is lovingly referred to as, “The Poop Button.” Located just 2-3 finger widths below the navel, CV6 is an access point that when stimulated with Ease, quickly gets your bowel movements moving. This natural reaction in the body allows Ease to aid you in keeping your digestive system regular without the use of medication. It is a pill-free way of getting things going… with ease!

If you’re suffering more from menstrual cramps, bloating, or even low stomach cramps that come and go, Ease is also in the fight with you! ST25 are two acupressure points located approximately two finger-widths on both sides of the navel. Both ST25 and CV6 target menstrual cramps, abdomen discomfort, and bloating. When using Ease, the small point, or head, is perfect for stimulating CV6, while the flat, opposite end is perfect for accessing ST25 by placing Ease directly over the navel, horizontally. The length of Ease reaches both ST25 points, allowing you to start initiating immediate relief. 

When using Ease on either ST25 or CV6, firmly press Ease into the abdomen for 1 to 3 minutes. It should not be painful to use Ease and it is important to not press abruptly or aggressively. Instead, begin by putting Ease flush with the skin, targeting the acupoint you need, and then slowly apply pressure until there is a natural resistance. Your best judgment for your own body is key. After 1-3 minutes, remove Ease slowly away from the abdomen and note the results.

WebMD explains, “Acupressure practitioners use their fingers, palms, elbows or feet, or special devices to apply pressure to acupoints on the body’s meridians.” Ease was created so that you can bring the successes, joys, and reliefs of acupressure directly into your home! No scheduled appointments, no high costs, simply utilizing the researched methods that have proven to help.
