AbstractAn acupressure device for applying pressure to specific points on a human body comprises a stimulator (14) which is attached to a flexible cinching strap or band (10) of a length sufficient to extend circumferentially around a body part, including a releasable connecting means to facilitate the positioning and securing of the terminus of the stimulator against a specific point on the human body. The stimulator has a convex curved side (26) which is attached to the flexible strap. Opposite the curved side and extending therefrom, an elongated protuberance (20) extends and terminates in a blunt or pointed surface end (22). This end can be made to contact and apply pressure to a selected point on the user's body by extending the strap around a portion of the body and tightening same with the terminus of the stimulator in proper position.
