Amongst the amethyst crystal-infused water bottles, apple cider vinegar capsules and golden handcuffs, actress Gwyneth Paltrow's wellness and lifestyle company, Goop, is selling an exciting new product developed by Oak Park acupuncturist Mary Jane Neumann.
Neumann's stainless steel Hegu Acupuncture Rings stimulate the pressure point between the thumb and the index finger, which is believed to relieve minor and occasional headaches.
"There is a growing demand for drug-free alternatives for pain, and I'm happy Hegu is a small part of the solution," Neumann said in an email to the Wednesday Journal.
In her work, Neumann focuses on pain management, women's health, and facial rejuvenation. She's been practicing in Oak Park since 2006. She currently operates out of famed author Ernest Hemingway's childhood home.
"I created Hegu acupressure rings in 2012 as a take home solution for my patients, but I'm excited that they are now gaining national and international exposure," she said.
The rings retail on Goop for $55 and come in a package of two. There are three sizes — small, medium and large.
The large rings also work on pressure points located in the feet.
