Acupressure mats are an ancient tool with its roots in Indian mysticism. With its origin, dating back thousands of years, the acupressure mat is a well tested tool for healing the body and releasing emotional, physical and mental blockages. Use it before bed time and once you learn and get used to doing it every day, you will wake up feeling refreshed and well rested. A very effective tool for releasing tension and inducing a state of deep relaxation. When you use the AcupunctureMat regularly for 20 to 40 minutes, you enable your body to release endorphins which in turn stimulates the release of oxytocin, the feel-good hormone. As a result, your body relaxes and releases stress, promoting restful sleep as a result of relief from stressful back and neck pain. The AcupunctureMat combines the ancient practice of acupressure with modern technology, allowing you to regularly engage your body's healing functions for the cost of a single professional massage.
