What are the benefits of using an acupressure mat/pillow?
This unique mat/pillow works by offering a combination of acupressure to the skin whilst circulating new blood flow throughout the body. A perfect combination to give a feeling of rejuvenation. Benefits may include:
. Better sleep
. Deeper and more relaxed state.
. More post exercise energy.
. Relief of neck, shoulder and back pain.
. Stress relief.
. Detoxifying the body.
. A reduction in headaches/migraines.
. Rejuvenating blood cells.
* Your back/neck may appear red after the session (this is a normal reaction).
How to use our acupressure products
Initially the mat/pillow may feel a little uncomfortable, depending on your pain threshold until your body adjusts to the sensation (no pain no gain!). However, after regular use the feeling of discomfort will be replaced by a warm feeling throughout the target area. This is simply your body adjusting and allowing the natural healing process to occur, as you relax your mind, muscles and body adjust to give a feeling of complete relaxation.
The rejuvenation of new blood cells is a good thing as your muscle memory improves. Best used on the naked skin or with a thin item of clothing for maximum benefit.
Instructions for using the mat:
Lie on your back on the acupressure mat for 15-30 minutes to feel maximum benefits (ideally at bedtime, placing it on a hard or soft surface depending on your preference). For best results us on bare skin/or wearing thin cotton clothing.
Benefits may include:
. Improving sleep quality.
. Tension relief in tight muscles.
. Aiding in the depth of meditation.
. Stress/anxiety reduction.
. Improving back pain.
. Assisting with pain levels for fibromyalgia/Arthritis and other chronic illnesses
Stand in the centre of the acupressure mat barefoot for 3-5 minute. As our feet are often very sensitive it may take a few sessions to build up your resistance and increase the time to suit your tolerance level. A mini reflexology session in your own home! (for sensitive feet begin in the seated position with our feet on the mat, building up your resistance to a standing position)
Benefits may include:
. Increased blood flow in the legs/feet.
. Concentration leads to a better level of balance (perfect for yogis!)
. As the feet relax the daily aches lessen.
. Rejuvenating new blood cells to improve overall circulation
