Acupressure Mat Tips
The first time you are about to use the Acupressure Mat put it on a soft place, for example your bed or a sofa. Then lay down carefully on your back. As you start getting used to the Acupressure Mat, you may find it helpful to put a t-shirt or a thin fabric over the mat. Place a cushion under your head to make yourself more comfortable.
For the first few minutes you may experience a burning sensation which will then turn into a comfortable feeling as the circulation of the blood increases.
When starting to use the Acupressure Mat we suggest you lie on it for around 10 minutes to see how your body reacts to the mat. When you feel comfortable you can gradually increase the time you use the Acupressure Mat during the next two weeks until you reach approximately 20-45 minutes. Should you fall asleep it’s fine to lie on it for longer.
Some people use the mat everyday while others just a few times a week, it is your choice. Pay attention to your body’s responses and adjust your usage accordingly.
After using the Acupressure Mat, you should drink a glass of water in order to help the body recover.
Acupressure, an ancient healing art, uses pressure to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they help relax muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body's life force to aid healing. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same points, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses the gentle but firm pressure of the hands or feet, or use the blunt spikes of acupressure balls or mats.
Pain Relief using the Acupressure Mat
The Acupressure Mat was initially designed to be used during meditation and has a number of benefits for general wellbeing. The acupressure mat is covered with over 6000 points disguised as little lotus flowers, offering an even greater number of acupressure points than the traditional Indian bed of nails. It is the sheer number of these stimulating acupressure points that make the mat so effective in deepening the meditative experience and in relieving a variety of common ailments.
The Acupressure mat can help alleviate the symptoms of many ailments that people often resign themselves to living with including backache, sciatica, muscular tension, joint pain, hip pain, bursitis, arthritis, difficulty sleeping, migraine, high stress levels, lethargy and depression.
To use the mat for overall wellbeing, lie on it daily for around 20 minutes. For targeted pain relief, the affected area should be in contact with the mat for however long is comfortable. Start with five minute sessions and build up to 20 minutes or more. For example, if you have a pain in your hip that stops you from getting off to sleep at night, go to bed and lie on the affected side ensuring the entire hip area is in contact with the acupressure mat.
You may feel tingling sensations, pins and needles or a rush of warmth as stagnant energy begins to flow through the congested area, in this case the hip. Gradually you will feel the warmth spreading down your leg and across your back until a warm, pulsing sensation is felt from your fingers to your toes.
These sensations indicate that the painful area is decongesting, relaxing the surrounding muscles and ultimately relieving the pain. Regular use can prevent the pain from occurring enabling you to maintain a pain free state throughout the day. The possibilities here are endless, simply substitute the hip for the areas where you experience pain to achieve the same benefits.
Insomnia is greatly relieved by sleeping on the mat, lying flat on your back. You may wish to place a pillow beneath your knees to allow yourself to comfortably drift off into a deep sleep. Consider using a guided meditation to help this process along.
Regular use of the mat will reduce a variety of painful conditions including migraine as the elevated endorphin levels in your body work to block the pain impulses in the brain. Depression is alleviated by the same process as endorphins naturally lift the mood leaving you feeling calmer, happier and more relaxed.
Perhaps you like to use yoga as a form of relaxation and stress control. Believe it or not, you can perform yoga poses on the Acupressure mat, the effect of the acupressure boosting the natural effects of the poses. Place a thin cloth over the mat at first until you get used to the sensation of performing poses on the acupressure points, and start with poses where your weight is evenly balanced, such as a seated forward bend or a standing forward bend.
For meditation and general relaxation, take ten minutes or more whenever possible to lie on your back on the Acupressure mat, with relaxing music or a guided meditation playing in the background. Your overall wellbeing, mood and energy levels will benefit greatly from a time out like this.
As you can see, the Acupressure mat is not simply a meditation aid. It has multiple uses in everyday life. It is a powerful health promoting tool that can help to increase productivity, reduce reliance on painkillers and improve quality of life by gradually reducing and ultimately eliminating lethargy, depression, anxiety, erratic sleep patterns and more through the widely documented benefits of acupressure. Just as every household has a hot water bottle for winter colds, each one might also consider an Acupressure mat for ongoing health maintenance and wellbeing for the whole family.
