Hong Kong-based Chinese medicine practitioner and acupuncturist Master Ruth has partnered with sex tech brand We-Vibe to introduce the benefits of traditional Chinese medicine to sexual wellness, using vibrators specifically.

Sexual wellness in Chinese medicine is all about the kidneys — not the genitals. The kidney acts as the “root of life,” so any imbalance within the kidneys affecting the yin and yang can create issues. The yang is the sunshine in your body that “warms the reproductive sex organs,” while the yin is like “the water streams in our body,” which nourishes you. As you orgasm and your body contracts, energy flows throughout the body. If your kidney and yin and yang energy are at optimal levels, it is believed that your sexual energy and vitality will be optimal as well.

Traditional Chinese medicine is holistic, so any issues like low libido and lack of sexual pleasure are healed through a curated wellness plan that combines measures like acupuncture, acupressure and other methods like herbal teas. These aid the kidney and your yin and yang energy, directly helping you sexually.

Acupressure is an inexpensive, safe and simple self-care practice for realigning your yin and yang energy. Read on for Master Ruth’s tips for using vibrators to perform acupressure.

The Yongquan KI1 Point

On the sole of the foot, about one-third of the distance between the base of the second toe and the heel, the point lies in the depression that appears when the toes are curled. It is the first point of the kidney meridian. Besides it being great for activating the qi of the kidney, this point is effective for calming the spirit and balancing excessive heat in the heart system. We-Vibe’s Touch X’s eight intensity levels along with seven modes deliver deep powerful vibrations for a pleasurable massage. 

The Zhongji CV3 Point

It lies six fingers’ width below the umbilicus on the midline. This point is effective in strengthening the kidney essence and moving the stagnation in the reproductive and urinary systems. Convenient and eco-friendly, the Tango X is rechargeable with up to 120 minutes of massage on a single charge.
