What is ZpikesTape?

ZpikesTape is a drug-free alternative for those who want to take advantage of the body’s unique potential.ZpikesTape is acupressure, which is pressure instead of needles as in acupuncture. There are no drugs in this product and therefore ZpikesTape will not cause any side effects associated with traditional pharmaceuticals. The product consists of nylon tape, latex-free glue and a hemisphere made of ABS plastic that constantly presses on two selected acupressure points, depending on the issue. The product breaths, is water-resistant and easy to use. ZpikesTape can be a valuable alternative in many cases, but it should never replace medical treatment if needed.

Why does it work?

Eastern philosophy

In traditional Chinese medicine, we define “meridians” as channels that form a network through the body. In this network, the energy of life (Qi) flows. If the flow of Qi is blocked (stagnation), pain, discomfort or possible illness may occur. If this happens, the acupressure points must be stimulated so that the blockage loosens and the energy can flow freely.

Western philosophy

It can be difficult to explain the positive experiences with ZpikesTape from a Western point of view. Physiologically, the local effects can be explained by altered sensory stimulation and increased blood circulation in and around the stimulated tissue.

Acupressure can also initiate the body’s production of, among other things, the morphine-like transmitter substances endorphin and enkephalin.
