ACcU

Acupressure is a unique massaging method, based on a meridian theory, deriving from the traditional Chinese medicine system. It involves stimulating sensory nerves under the skin and in the muscles, which forces the body to produce natural substances, such as pain-relieving endorphins and serotonin, which can eventually relieve stress. It has been scientifically proven by authority organisations, such as National Health Service and World Health Organization, that it can be considered as a treatment option for chronic tension-type headaches, as well as pain relief in other parts of the body.

ACcU is a digital tool that combines traditional Chinese acupressure techniques with advanced machine learning technology. It provides a new complementary therapy option for European office workers to tackle stress

  • Culture, nature and fun are always a great teacher to learn from – and I am learning from them. I hope to bring their wisdom back to our life. Sometimes I don't think I am a designer, but a porter.
