I love this ball. I have neuropathy in both feet and decided to give this a try. I love it. It actually feels good, especially when I am in so much pain. As strange as it sounds, it is comforting and helps ease the pain in my feet.More > < Less

Hoping for more relief.

First the pros: This little accupressure ball is extremely well-made, and the materials used seem to be top quality. It is also successful inful in encouraging a boost in circulation near the skin surface.
Now the cons:
The myriad of very sharp metal points that protrude from the whole surface of the ball make it very difficult to apply enough pressure to the ball to allow it to reach deeper than skin surface, unless you are using gloves or some other kind of protection for your hand. This means very little pain relief. And that was my whole reason for buying a ball advertised as an acupressure device - pain relief. I can get increased circulation at the skin surface with an inexpensive loofah.

About Aku

Ancient Treatment

Paul de Jersey was inspired to create his Akuspike therapy tools when he used an acupressure mat during recovery from a back injury. He teamed up with Dr. Nikolay Lyapko, a Ukrainian acupuncturist and sports therapist, to make a new take on the traditional pieces used for centuries and to make this ancient form of therapy more accessible to modern folks.

Pressure from Aku Ball and Aku Mat’s metal spikes against skin is believed to trigger a healing response in the body that feels warm and revitalizing and can stimulate circulation to enhance physical and mental performance.

The metal spikes are a traditional—and deliberate—touch. The metals are ones found in the body, like silver, zinc, and iron. Fitting in a squeeze or roll with the Aku Ball is easy and you can do it when you’re just about anywhere. Aku Mat has a higher-intensity level, but it’s the same idea: lay, roll, or stand on the metal spikes. It looks intimidating, but those of us who tried it enjoyed it. And you can do it for as long as it feels comfortable and build up your practice over time.
