(4) The Scrub / Rub Method (擦法)
The Scrub method is to do sliding friction on the skin by using the smooth surface of Bianstone tools. As sliding friction is greater than rolling friction, the Bianstone tools have stronger stimulation on the human body. However, the surface of Sibin pumice product is very smooth due to its microcrystalline structure, making it quite comfortable to rub it on the human body. Stimulations of the Bianstone on the human body are weak in the scrub method and can be used on the part that is vulnerable to stimulation, such as face, ribs and other parts. The patient will not feel any pain in the scrub method unless he or she has trauma. Followings are examples for the scrub method.
A Bianstone therapist holds the Bianstone anvil or Bianstone block, rubbing on the human body with their surface.
The edge of the Bianstone anvil, Bianstone bar and Bianstone board or the Bianstone's circular edge panels can be used as a therapy along the main and collateral channels.
Put the Bianstone block on the table or the carpet, rubbing it with palm or sole of the foot for hand and foot care.
