A Teishin is a small, therapeutic instrument used to stimulate acupuncture points and promote healing; they do not penetrate the skin. Shamanic healers in ancient China discovered and developed the points and meridians of acupuncture using stone probes several thousand years before the invention of needles. Teishins are great for everyday usage, travel, for children, and anyone with a fear of needles.
Garnet is the Stone of Health. It is also known for its utilization of creative energy and has been used as a sacred stone by the Native American Indians, the South American Indians, the Aztecs, the African tribal elders, and the Mayans to enhance one's creative fire. Yet Garnet is a sensual stone. It represents primordial fire, the creation of the world out of chaos, purification and love. It is a stone of strong, intense feelings. Garnet has been used to reduce body toxins, purify vital organs and blood, alleviate acne, low libido, and disturbances in the cardiac rhythm and assists in assimilation of vitamins and minerals. Emotionally it provides a protective and calming influence during use and is thought to heal depression, alleviate nightmares, treat blood-related illnesses and promote rapid regeneration and healing.
