When we live in a time where our smartphones has become our Swiss knife, how can we also sustainably multipurpose its accessories? What if we also could benefit from self-care by simply using our phone daily?



















Acupoint phone cases are a collection of three sustainably made phone cases, each targeting the relief of a common daily distress such as stress, headache, and stomachache. By ergonomically placing bumps on the surface of the case, they are acting as acupressure points - a traditional treatment method based on acupuncture that only requires pressure on certain parts of the body.

In keeping with the idea that self-care should not be a chore, we developed an app offering a series of simple game/exercises, designed to enhance physical contact with the targeted acupressure points.
