What is an Acupressure Mat?
The mat consists of a thin fabric covered with ABS plastic spikes. It is inspired by an ancient Indian healing tradition that is believed to have beenaround for thousands of years.
The thousands of spikes that have been strategically placed on the mat and pillow are harmless to the skin and will
provide your bodywith healing benefits.
How Does it Work?
The acupressure mat is a perfect assistant for self-treatment. It works in a similar way as acupuncture by having your body release endorphins, which have the ability to produce analgesia and a feeling of well-being. Many people have different reactions to this, which may include: happiness, a
clearer mind, more energy, and relaxation. If regularly used for a long enough period of time, the acupressure mat can:
- Increase energy levels
Improve blood circulation
- Decrease stress
- Relieve neck and back pain
- Reduce blood pressure
- Alleviate headaches-Improve sleep .
How Do You Use It?
Place the mat on the ground with spikes pointing up. Lie on the mat. The mat will allow you to target curved areas, such as neck, lumbar, and even feet. It is recommended to do it daily for 10 to 30 minutes at a time. For beginners, it might be better to start for shorter periods of time and/or wear a shirt or place a thin cloth between the spikes and your skin.
