The Indian nail mat served as inspiration for the AcupressureMat®, which applies pressure to specific body areas.
The classic use
On any level surface, unroll the mat vertically with the bumps clearly visible (bed, futon, carpet, floor..). With your skin in close proximity to the zits, gently lie down on the AcupressureMat®.
Keep a T-shirt on for the first few applications if the sensation is too harsh. You will be able to use the mat without a shirt on as you use it more frequently.
How long should I keep the position?
10 to 15 minutes will be adequate at first. Your sessions can eventually be increased to 40 - 50 minutes. It is safe to use the AcupressureMat® for prolonged periods of time.
You will feel the AcupressureMat® beneficial's effects on your body right away if you use it every day.
After a session, it is advised that you take a nap to prevent the energy from flowing improperly. To maximize the effects, many people choose to use it in the evening just before bed.
You'll start to feel more at ease, less anxious, and particularly more productive in your daily life.

To make sure your lower back is in contact, you can also bend your legs and place your feet flat on the ground.
The mat can be used to relieve tired legs and stimulate blood flow. Lay sideways on the mat. The pins have to be in close proximity to your hip and thigh.

The neck and the nape of the neck
Lie on your back with the towel tucked under the mat, your neck touching the surface. By doing this, you can release the tension that has built up in your shoulders and trapezius.

How to clean an Acupressure Mat?
As much as possible, stay away from the dryer and the washing machine. The carpet's bumps can be removed. So, wash your hands by hand with lukewarm water and gentle detergents.
Hanging your carpet outside will help it dry. Take your rug with you wherever you go; it will help you unwind no matter where you are.
