Hegu acupressure rings were created and patented by Mary Jane Neumann, L.Ac. Headaches are routinely and successfully treated with acupuncture. The concept for Hegu acupressure rings began as a solution for patients who wanted a natural alternative for headaches that could be used at home and on the go. Why Hegu? Hegu refers to the acupressure point that the rings stimulate. It means “joining valley” and it represents our mission to merge an ancient modality with the modern world.
