Acupressure mats, also knows as a “bed of nails” or an “acupressure needle stimulation pad” are foam mats with thousands of very sharp, short plastic needles.
The first question on my mind was, what is the difference between acupuncture and acupressure? Well, they both stimulate acupoints, acupuncture is performed with needles that pierce the skin, where acupressure is non-invasive with manual pressure used to massage the acupoints. Acupressure points are located all over our bodies, and they “follow meridians (also known as energy channels) of the body,” which some scientists think may be linked to the myofascial tissue around our muscles.
Acupressure is an ancient Chinese therapy and has got so many benefits. I love to try things out before writing about it, and safe to say this mat is close to a miracle for anyone suffering from Insomnia, HBP, lower back pain, indigestion and the list goes on.
The one thing that I absolutely love about the mat is that you have got the ability to manage your own treatment and compared to other therapy options for pain, the acupressure mats are relatively affordable and super easy to use.
I lie on it every night before I go to bed and I have never experienced such deep sleep and relaxation. I use to have a burning sensation in my shoulder for the past 3 years and since using the mat it has disappeared. In the morning I walk on it to energize my body and get ready for the day.
With so many benefits, it’s time to roll out your acupressure mat and reap the rewards.
