I handcraft self-use healing tools called: Teishins

A Teishin is a small, therapeutic instrument used to stimulate, on the skin's surface, acupuncture points; they do not penetrate the skin.  This tool is one of the 'Nine Needles' described in the Huangdi Neijing Ling Shu. These tools can be safely used by you to gain relief from pain, anxiety and promote healing and wellness.

Myrrh Medicine Teishins are crafted from silver, bronze and soon, gold.  Silver is a Yin metal, used for Sedating.  Bronze is a Yang metal, used for Tonifying.  I use bronze for it's beauty, durability, and usage throughout history.  My bronze is 90% copper and 10% tin.

I've handmade these heirloom quality tools using particular dimensions associated with the number '3' and sacred geometry. Each needle has hand-marked tiny grooves where I've spun the needle to imbue it with good Qi and create a unique texture and handmade appearance in deference to Wabi-Sabi, the Japanese concept of appreciation for the art of imperfection.

Myrrh Medicine Teishins are the first and only stone-set Teishins. Either tip of the instrument can be used to stimulate the Acupuncture points.  Stone Medicine is part of the ancient lineage of Traditional East Asian Medicine.  "In addition to herbalism and acupuncture, Chinese medicine has a rich tradition of using stones as medicine, passed from generation to generation for thousand of years" -from Stone Medicine' by Jeffrey Yuen. 

"Stones are viewed as living, evolving entities that can take thousands or more years to grow.  The use of stones provide the most profound and permanent effects of Chinese treatment modalities and their noted use was specific to treat the most difficult of diseases.  The classics contend that the density and solidity of stones represents this permanence in healing and their stabilizing effect.  Stones can serve as valuable chelating agents to draw out toxins from the physical body, as well as critical support for emotional and spiritual evolution. Despite the existence of these ancient writings, the use of gems and stones has been notably left out of contemporary teachings and practice of Chinese Medicine.  This was due to the Chinese Cultural Revolution which started in the 1960’s." -from Dr. Rebecca Welling 


First, decide upon a stone that resonates with you.  
Read about them here, you can choose one upon checkout.   


Sapphire is a Stone of Wisdom. Long-associated with insight, learning, enlightenment, and wise judgement. A talisman of protection, especially from poison, plague, fever, and skin disease, it has great power in resisting evil influences. For the healer it channels and amplifies ones healing powers. Sapphire transforms negative energies and lends strength and focus along with the ability to see beneath the surface to the underlying truth.


Tanzanite is the Stone of Transmutation. This stone aids the healer in trusting ones own insight. It is particularly helpful in uniting the mind and heart, teaching one to live from a compassionate heart with an illuminated mind and aids in sharing spiritual information and knowledge from a heart-centered perspective, making it excellent for healers in positions of intellectually interpreting emotional experiences. Tanzanite is said to strengthen the immune system, detoxify the blood and improve vitality. It promotes the regeneration of cells, skin and hair. Tanzanite is also said to be useful in treating psychological disorders, stress, and nervous tension, and is excellent for the problem of excessive sweating and may relieve migraine headaches.


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.
