Please view some of the most commonly asked questions and answers about the Acupressure below -
Despite the fact every individual is very unique, our bodies are built in a very similar way and they respond to the stimulation of the Acupressure mat in a certain way. When neurons (or nerve cells) on our skin surface are trigged by the sharpness of the studs our brain reacts by sending endorphins into our nervous system blocking the pain and increasing blood and lymph circulation in the treated area which creates the right environment for cells to renew themselves. This process happens to every body treated with the Acupressure mat.
You can fee some initial pricking sensation during the very first few minutes on the areas being treated. But all pain or discomfort is quickly replaced by a pleasant feeling of relaxation.
When using the Acupressure mat you can expect:
We suggest that you start with 15 minutes. When more accustomed to the Acupressure mat 20-40 minutes per session is standard. However, it is not dangerous to exceed the time limit. Many people fall asleep on the mat and that is perfectly safe. We recommend regular, if possible daily, use.
There are no real side-effects. Just after the treatment you can notice some redness (due to increased blood circulation) on the treated area which will disappear within a few minutes.
The points may feel irritating to sensitive or inflamed skin. You may ease the sensation by placing a thin cloth between your skin and the Acupressure mat. You should immediately stop the treatment if you feel you are getting worse.
Children tend to like it a lot. They calm down and relax. Try using it at bedtime, but always under supervision.
The Acupressure mat is a very safe device, though if you have some chronic disease / condition, please, contact your doctor prior to using the Acupressure mat.
If you are pregnant always consult your midwife before using the Acupressure mat.
Yes, the Acupressure mat can be hand washed with soap and a brush (if needed) and rinsed with plenty of water. Allow to hang and drip dry. Avoid washing machines and tumble dryers as the plastic points may get damaged.
