Win an Acupressure Mat!

WHAT IS IT: a Heavenly Acupressure Mat that has a total of 8,820 contact points, which stimulate your skin and acupressure points in your body. By laying or standing on the mat, the contact points can help your body to release endorphins and oxytocin, your body’s own pain relieving and feel-good hormones. Ideally, by using the acupressure mat for just 20 minutes each day you can effectively relieve pain, promote relaxation and increase energy levels.

To be more specific, with regular use you may achieve the following benefits:

  • Reduced pain, including backache and tension headaches
  • Decreased muscular tension and stiffness
  • Stress and anxiety relief
  • Strengthened immune system
  • Improved blood circulation
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Increased metabolism and mental clarity
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Increased energy levels and decreased chronic fatigue
  • Improved sleep, especially stress induced insomnia
  • Deep sense of relaxation

Definitely a great range of possible benefits! To be honest, it’s pretty weird at first… think bed of nails. Or don’t think bed of nails because that probably sounds really painful for good reason. It is far from the feeling of lying on a bed of nails (not that I speak from personal experience), but the general idea is similar. Actually, I found that if you wear anything that is too thick when using the mat then you barely feel the contact points. So I definitely suggest that you opt for very thin clothing or even bare skin.
