Acupuncture and Acupressure Mats

Updated on March 13, 2013

Relieve Stress & Pain with One of These Acupressure Mats!

I recently purchased an acupressure mat--it's the Spoonk mat that has been endorsed by some reputable TV personalities like Dr. Oz. I'm going to add my feedback from this mat as I use it and experience its benefits! I wanted to share these acupuncture and acupressure mats with you, so you can enjoy pain and stress relief, too! I do experience some lower back pain, but I'm looking forward to something else--apparently, these can help you sleep better. That's something I'm VERY excited about.

You'll find a variety of acupressure mats and pillows showcased here. You can target feet, back, neck and other body regions with the disks that contain fingers or "nails," as they are referred to. These nails will target areas all over your body for better blood circulation, relief from stress and are also known to relieve pain when used regularly.

Give them a chance! These mats can be a bit uncomfortable, especially when you first try them out, but continue to use them regularly, and you will reap the benefits!

What is Acupressure?

And why can an acupressure mat help?

Acupressure is most likely used in areas other than where the pain is targeted. This is an alternative method of balancing chi and is thought to increase blood circulation and flexibility while relieving pain and stress in various parts of the body.

Many martial arts participants have been known to use acupressure to incapacitate an opponent and to enhance their own circulation and flexibility, thus leaving them less vulnerable during an attack.

Acupressure or acupuncture mats have thousands of "nails" that target your body to relieve pain and stress, and provide you with an overall feeling of peace and well-being.

What Are the Benefits of an Acupuncture or Acupressure Mat?

  1. You'll sleep better!
  2. You'll feel more relaxed!
  3. You'll have better blood circulation!
  4. Helps relieve pain in back, hips, head and more!
  5. Will help you achieve an overall better feeling and outlook on life!

Acupressure Mat for Feet & Back - Relieve Stress, Foot Pain and Back Pain

This cotton covered sponge rubber mat has 55 blunt spikes for a total of 1,485 "nails" to provide ultimate stimulation to your skin and acupressure points. I bet this feels especially good on tired feet! I can almost feel the relief as I think about it. You can also use this for back pain relief, too. It's cushy enough to work well behind your back while you sit in your office chair or recliner, and its small size allows for easy transporting to work and back! Your feet (or back and lower extremities) will be stimulated and invigorated as you use this acupressure mat. It increases blood circulation to every part of the body you use it on, too.

Acupressure Mat Pillow - Great for muscle and headache relief

This acupressure mat pillow will invigorate and stimulate your feet and extremities, as well as your lower back and head. Get blood circulating, and get relaxed while at home or at work (who doesn't need to be more relaxed at work?) Place this acupressure mat pillow on the floor for feet stimulation (my feet are pretty ticklish, so this should be interesting). You can also place this behind your neck and upper back, behind your knees, or anywhere else where you want to relieve pain and stress in your body. This acupuncture pillow is versatile and very affordable, as well, and it always makes a nice gift for family and friends who want to feel great.

When You Feel Better

You'll be happier, and will be able to do more things that you enjoy. It's a great feeling to be stress free and feeling well!

Acupuncture Mat with Free Pillow - Stress Relief Acupuncture Mat

This acupuncture mat is available in green or orange. After using this mat for a while, you'll realize relief from back and hip pain, as well as headache relief. You will also increase blood circulation, relax muscles and feel a deep sense of relaxation all over your body for better sleep and an overall feeling of peace and relief from stress, which is what most of us want, after all (and my number one choice for using one!).

The manufacturer does recommend that you start out slowly. Lay on this mat for short periods of time while wearing a thin layer of clothing. You'll feel some discomfort at first, but once you release yourself into the mat's "fingers," you'll feel relaxed and peaceful. You can use this mat on your lower back, calves and feet, too!

      I've never heard of an acupressure mat, very clever.
