The Acupressure Mat was born of the Ancient "Bed of Nails" used by Ancient Indian Yogis for centuries. The Bed of Nails was thought to be a precursor to modern acupressure treatment. This treatment is known to help with nausea and lower back pain, redirecting life energy through the body's natural meridians. The surface of the mat is covered in 230 small disks which contain 27 spikes each, resulting in over 6,000 pressure points. Try it during savasana or lotus pose against bare skin. Bring the mat to the bottom of your back in a seated position; then, lower against the mat gently. The mat stimulates the spinal cord which affects feelings of the entire body.
Reported benefits are seemingly endless: lowering blood pressure, boosting the immune system, decreasing inflammation, stimulating the circulatory and nervous systems, relieving insomnia, localized pain, muscle aches, depression and more. The Acupressure Mat is available in an array of colors: red, blue, green, pink, or purple. The mat comes with a detachable rubber foam mattress that stands about one inch tall. The back of the mat is decorated with an astrology wheel and it comes with a free natal (astrological) chart.
