Therapeutic acupressure garments to treat trauma

Understanding textiles as a therapeutic interface on the body opens up the potential of fashion and wearables for mental health. The Healing Imprint explores how non-invasive acupressure can to be integrated into activewear. The custom-knit, therapeutic garments allow small massage balls to be inserted and moved onto specific acupressure points on the body, feet, hands and head. “Emotional sustainability“ is aiming towards healing trauma - the root cause of many mental conditions. Self-care is now a force for collective (mental) health, recognizing that we as humans are all interconnected.
