ACUPRESSURE THERAPY

For centuries, in India, China, Japan and other countries, it is believed that our life relies on the bioelectricity that exists in our body and this life force energy is called ‘Prana’ or ‘Chetana’, also known as the ‘Chi’ energy. These forces flow through channels in the body called meridians which maintain the flow of the forces of energy and have connection with the main organs of the body.

What is an acupressure mat and pillow?

An acupressure mat and pillow are acupressure tools that are designed to alleviate pain and stress. The mat and pillow contain hundreds or thousands of acupressure points that are similar to the pressure points found in acupuncture.

The mat and pillow work by stimulating the acupressure points to increase circulation, reduce muscle tension, and release endorphins that promote relaxation and healing.

How to Use Your Mat & Pillow

An acupressure mat and pillow set usually consists of a mat with hundreds of small plastic spikes and a smaller pillow with similar spikes. The mat and pillow work by applying pressure to certain points of the body, which activates the body's natural healing process. To use an acupressure mat and pillow, simply lie down on the mat with your bare skin against the spikes. The most common way to use the mat is to lie down on it for 10 to 20 minutes a day. You can also use the mat and pillow to target specific areas of the body such as your neck, back, and legs, by placing the pillow under those areas.

What to Expect

Acupressure mats and pillows have been reported to provide several benefits for the body and mind, including relaxation, improved sleep, and pain relief. The mat and pillow work by stimulating specific acupressure points, which are believed to promote energy flow and release blocked tension.

When you first use an acupressure mat and pillow, you may experience discomfort or mild pain due to the pressure exerted by the spikes. However, most people report feeling a sense of relaxation and calmness after using the set regularly. You may also notice a reduction in muscle pain, stiffness, and tension, which can help to promote wellbeing and self-care.

Your Daily Routines

Acupressure mats and pillows can be incorporated into your daily routines easily. You can use the mat and pillow at home while watching TV, reading a book, or even while meditating. A regular routine of 10 to 20 minutes of use per day can be a great way to support your wellbeing and self-care.

You can also incorporate acupressure into your daily routines by using other self-care practices such as yoga, meditation, and deep breathing exercises.

These practices complement the use of acupressure mats and pillows by promoting relaxation and energy flow.

How to use your acupressure mat & pillow

1. Find a comfortable, quiet space to lay down.

For first time user's, we highly recommend wearing a t-shirt or laying a sheet over the mat to reduce the intensity of the pinpoints. As you gain more experience, you will be able to use the mat directly on your bare skin (which is the recommended method).

2. Place the acupressure mat on a flat surface, such as the floor or bed.

Lay down on the mat, positioning your back evenly on the spikes. The spikes may feel a little uncomfortable at first, so let your body adjust. Feel free to shift your body as needed to find a comfortable position.

Once it starts to feel good, lay on it for up to 30 minutes to feel energized and rejuvenated. If you want to target your lower back, bend your knees or prop them up on a pillow. You can also use the pillow under your leg.
