HOW IT WORKS WITH TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE?
Traditional Chinese medicine is a comprehensive art of healing that has existed for more than 5,000 years and has developed continuously over time. Zone therapy is a method of treatment used to influence the long-term ability of the brain to regulate pain. The method involves stimulating various reflex zones on, among other things, feet, representing the various organs and parts of the body. A distinct pressure leads to a reaction in the area that the zone corresponds to. A zone in the foot is stimulated by pressure from the insoles, which speeds up the healing process and increases blood circulation in that specific body part or organ to which the zone corresponds. When a reflex zone is exposed to stimulation, the energy flow that activates all the muscles, organs and tissues of the body also increases as energy is released.

6. Why do I have pain in my feet when I use your health insoles?
Some users may initially feel pain in their feet when using our health insoles. This may be due to the individual’s foot type, weight, and other health issues. The pain means that there is imbalance in one of your zones. A zone can be blocked in various ways, by poor blood circulation, for example. If the body is in imbalance, it cannot heal itself. To get rid of pain, the body must first be brought into balance.
For example, if you feel pain in your knees and back, these may be symptoms of having an imbalance in your body, which our health insoles can help remove.
If you experience pain when using our health insoles, you can start by using health insoles for shorter intervals at first (such as 30-60 minutes at a time). Then gradually increase the time based on how you feel. After a few weeks of use there shouldn’t be any pain, even after longer periods of use.
7. Why do I sometimes feel dizzy and tired when I use your health insoles?
Using our health insoles is like getting a zone therapy and acupuncture treatment. Therefore, it is common for you to feel thirsty and dizzy. In the beginning, when using our health insoles, try to rest after use, and drink more water. This will pass after a few uses as the body gets more used to it.
8. What should I consider when using your health insoles?
Health insoles should not be used by pregnant women and children under the age of ten. It is also important to drink plenty of water during and after use. They can be used every day for different purposes, but do not overexert yourself when using our insoles. If you feel any discomfort, rest a couple of days.
Depending on your individual problems and what health insoles you use, you will get used to it after a while and you can then easily use them many hours every day.

You might feel the difference after 5 minutes, but the result may even come after many weeks or months.
Please note that our health insoles are not a medical treatment that makes you feel good immediately. Our insoles are like acupuncture and zone therapy which is based on traditional Chinese medicine.

10. What is the difference from an Acupressure mat?
Our zone therapy insoles and magnetic insoles are basically built like an Acupressure mat. They increase blood circulation and provide you with a higher level of well-being. The difference from an acupressure mat is that we have developed and added elastic acupuncture points, magnets, pods, and pads to make them feel soft and comfortable in your shoes while working more efficiently. In addition, they are significantly more practical and easier to use than an acupressure mat!
11. How do I cut to the insoles?
Our health insoles are available both with and without pre-marked lines. For health insoles without pre-marked lines, take out the shoe’s original insole and use it as a template when cutting the insole. Health insoles with pre-marked lines and size can easily be cut along the lines found under the insoles.
12. Which health insoles do your acupuncturists and experts recommend?
All health insoles have their own functions. People have individual problems and foot types. When choosing health insoles for best results, we recommend a pair of health insoles that massage and stimulate somewhat firmer, and a pair of health insoles that massage and stimulate more gently. More stimulation will get blood circulation started faster which in turn reactivates damaged muscles and joints. A more gentle massage for comfort and to increase blood circulation in the body.
13. Should I take out my original inserts in the shoes when I use your health insoles?
We recommend that you take out your original inserts because our insoles are somewhat thicker than regular insoles.
14. For how long can I use your health insoles per day?
Our health insoles don’t massage, prick, and press as hard as zone therapy and acupuncture does. You should feel comfortable with our health insoles and can therefore use our health insoles all day long, as long as you do not feel discomfort. Discomfort depends on, among other things, the sensitivity, pain, weight, and balance of the individual. If you feel discomfort, do not use the insoles for a few hours up to a couple of days.
