Buttons on sports clothing line for acupressure treatment

New York College of Health Professions has announced its latest developments regarding its revolutionary acupressure clothing and accessories line, MyChi, which can help athletes compete at their best and provide benefits outside of sports, including decreased motion sickness and aid in weight loss and smoking cessation.  The College has a granted United States patent for Therapeutic Clothing and Method of Use and is testing the line with athletes and non-athletes, as well as working with major textile companies and manufacturers.

Developed over 5,000 years ago in Asia, acupressure involves using your fingers to press key healing points on your body, which stimulate the body's natural capability to heal itself.

"We now have the ability to apply this to lines of clothing," stated Donald Spector, Chairman of New York College of Health Professions and a well-known, serial entrepreneur-inventor.

Athletes can utilize this authority-approved, modern version of the century-old treatment through uniforms, sweatbands, and other sports gear equipped with the acupressure buttons, which align with the body's own acupressure points. The instant relief from the acupressure on any ache, pain or injury is vital to athletes who want to play at their peak.

The buttons, or pellets, can help them relax during stressful situations, or become energized when feeling tired. And, because the product is self-administered by the wearer, the treatment can easily be applied as needed during a game, practice, or other sport-related activity.

For sports performers, the pellets have three practical forms: those permanently sewn into an athlete's gear, pellets that are removable, enabling the treatment of any ailment, or adhesive strips of pellets, which can be added to already-existing clothing.

"All athletes look for ways to enhance their performance, whether on the field or tennis court. I wish I could've worn this line of clothing when I was playing at Wimbledon as a 16-year-old," said Lisa Pamintuan, President of New York College of Health Professions and previous U.S. Open competitor.

Not only applicable to athletes, the acupressure clothing and accessories can be utilized by virtually anyone. In addition to the specific sport-related benefits, the treatment also can increase energy, decrease stress, relieve headaches, suppress appetite and smoking urge and relieve nausea and motion sickness, as well as aiding with other ailments. The clothes can also be used as maintenance of the body's condition between acupuncture treatments.

Chartered by the New York State Board of Regents, New York College of Health Professions, a not-for-profit institution located in Syosset, Long Island, with three additional sites in New York City, offers institutionally accredited undergraduate and graduate-level degree programs in Massage Therapy, Acupuncture, Oriental Medicine and Herbal Medicine, andCertificate programs in Holistic Nursing for Registered Nurses and The Science of Self Improvement. New York College maintains a 30-acre modern medical facility in Luo Yang, The People's Republic of China.
