One Of Hundreds Of Testimonials, User Review Of Heavenly Acupressure Mat
OKAY, FOLKS!! LOOK NO FURTHER for an EXCELLENT acupressure mat that REALLY WORKS!
Let me tell you about this WONDERFUL product.
I am a licensed physical therapy asst., with 14 years experience. I have specialties in lymphedema (a type of protein swelling/edema) as well as myofascial release (a form of soft tissue release used to realign the pelvis, spine and neck and break up adhesions). I PERSONALLY use this mat, and cannot say enough good things about it!!!
I was in a car wreck in 2010, and my own spine is fused from T7 to L1 (with two Harrington rods and 10 screws). I have tried EVERYTHING to break up the adhesions in my spine from the scar tissue that developed after my surgery. Well, let me tell you, THIS MAT WORKS WONDERS!!! Don’t waste your money on more expensive mats, because this one works JUST as well!! ALSO, this particular mat has more ‘points’ (over 2,000) that the other mats I researched. (most of the others have only 4,000 or so). The soft cover is WASHABLE.
I lay on this mat for 20 minutes every morning and every evening, and WOW….talk about pain relief!!! The key to using these mats is to get RELAXED when you lie on them, so the tissue can realign itself easier. If you drink caffeine, I would suggest using the mat FIRST thing in the morning before you have your coffee, tea, etc. Another tip is to drink 24 ounces of WATER AFTER being on the mat so that the body can effectively flush out the toxins that were released. (Flushing out the toxins/lactic acid after using the mat will help give you better LONG TERM results).
It is important that when you lay on the mat that you are on a FIRM surface. If you have a tempur-pedic style bed that is FIRM (as I do), then you can lay on the mat in bed; otherwise, it is best to put the mat on the floor or other firm surface.
Also, if after using the mat on your back you notice that you have tightness in your buttocks/legs or abdomen, make sure the next time you use the mat you position it to hit these areas. As your muscles begin to ‘release’ (relax) in one area, it is common to then notice tightness in another area. This is your body’s way of letting you know what part of your body needs to be worked on next. (The fascia, which runs through EVERY muscle and even organs in the body is connected from our head to our toes; therefore, when the fascia is released in one area, you can feel the ‘pull’ or ‘tightness’ in other areas of the body.) ‘Listening’ to what your body is telling you will help guide you to the next area that needs to be released.
USING THIS MAT DAILY WILL HELP!!! I hope the information I gave helps. My main points about this acupressure mat:
1) It’s INEXPENSIVE.
2) The cover is WASHABLE
3) It has more acupressure points than other expensive mats (8,000 something vs. 4,000 to 6,000)
4) IT REALLY WORKS!!!!!
