Relieve Pain, Boost Energy, and Sleep Better With This Acupressure Mat
Wait wait wait – what is an acupressure mat, and how does it help relieve pain, boost energy, and cultivate better sleep?!
What is Acupressure Mat? Both acupressure and acupuncture are ancient Chinese healing therapies. While acupuncture uses needles to adjust the body’s energy flow, acupressure provides similar effects without actually puncturing the skin. Both techniques offer a wide range of health benefits.
Spending just a few minutes a day on this acupressure mat can:
Increase energy level
Improve blood circulation
Relieve neck and back pain
Reduce blood pressure
This consist of a thin mat covered with ABS plastic spikes. It is inspired by the ancient Chinese healing tradition that is believed to have been around 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 body with healing benefits.
How does it work?
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.
How to use?
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 the neck, lumbar, and even feet. It is preferred to do it daily for 10 to 30 minutes at a time or as long as desired. For beginners, it might be better to start for a shorter period of time and/or wear a shirt or place a thin cloth between the spikes and your skin.
