KANDELIA OBOVATA / Far-IR ceramic Massage Pen

KANDELIA OBOVATA
KANDELIA OBOVATA

Metaphorically, our human body is like the land to Kandelia Obovata.
By combining the healing concept of Eastern Traditional Medicine and the characteristics of the Far Infrared Ray,
Kandelia Obovata gently and naturally interacts with our human body,
extends the heat transmission from warm moxibustion,
and improves heat stimulation therapy.
This pen-shaped massager marks the meridians and channels of our health
the way the Kandelia Obovata plant records the rise and fall of the coastal ecosystem.

It is
the Kandelia Obovata that guards the wetland ecosystem, and
the Kandelia Obovata that guards the health system.
