Lying on a bed of nails might not sound very inviting, but once you've experienced the benefits that it provides, you might not want to get up! The Memory Foam Acupressure Mat helps you experience a deeper sleep, stress relief, endorphins stimulation, pain reduction, and an overall increase in energy!
Acupressure is an ancient holistic treatment, that's similar to massage, acupuncture, and reflexology. To experience the benefits of this ancient pain relieving treatment, simply lay your mat down on the bed or floor and place the small pillow directly above the mat. Lie down slowly and carefully, allowing the 6,210 small, spiked nodules to press into your back. For best results, use the mat against your bare skin, as this provides the maximum amount of relief. Perfectly harmless to your skin, when used properly, the mat’s acupressure nodules are long and pointed. If done correctly, the mat will not cause sudden pain and will not harm the skin. Your body will begin to release natural, pain relieving endorphins, after a short period of time. After 15 minutes, roll off of the mat and enjoy a restful night's sleep. Each person is different so the ideal time on the mat will vary.
You should start simply, by lying on the mat for about 15 minutes, before bedtime. As you start to feel more comfortable, you can slowly increase your sessions to about 30-40 minutes. It's perfectly alright to place a thin towel or even wear a t-shirt, when you first start, as this reduces the intensity of the initial sensation.. The pressure may be intense for about 2 minutes or so, when first using your mat. After about 2 minutes, your nervous system gets used to the stimulus and you begin to experience an overall feeling of peace and calmness. After using your mat a few times, the sensation is actually quite pleasant.
