10 reason why you should use an acupressure mat
Acupressure is a physiotherapy technique of meditation inherited from ancient Chinese guru masters and it is based on the practice of acupuncture. Instead of the needles penetrating the skin during acupuncture, you will have plastic spikes that apply gentle pressure when resting on the acupressure mat. That gentle pressure will give you a feeling of relaxation and will help you deal with different types of stress on your body. So, what are you waiting to hit those spikes? Here is a list of 10 reasons why you should use an acupressure mat daily.
• Releases endorphin
Laying on the acupressure mat will trigger nerve endings in different parts of the body which in return will activate the release of endorphin in the synaptic junctions. This hormone will give you an ecstatic feeling and it is also well known for its pain killing abilities. This point will be of great value once you realise how joyful your lifestyle will be after you start using the acupressure mat. Researches prove that the stimulation incurred by the acupressure spikes will improve the production of endorphins and therefore guarantees a complete relaxation across all of your body.
• Better digestion
Using the acupressure mat to trigger the stomach or the waist area of the back will help with your digestion issues and makes your life easier if you have any digesting difficulties. A stomach massage after a heavy lunch or before sleep will relax the abdominal muscles and give the stomach more space to process and digest the food. This practice is recommended by physiotherapists and people who have gastro-oesophageal disorders stated that it helps especially with the calming of acid reflux.
• Muscle recovery
Whether you had an exhaustive workout or a tiring activity and you start feeling muscle fatigue, you should consider including a brief time of acupressure in your daily routine.
30 minutes on the acupressure mat will allow you to cover the largest part of muscles and the pressure will allow for quick recovery since the muscles need relaxation for this process.
• Other common diseases and discomforts
Patients suffering from different kinds of physical distress or headaches show a huge improvement after using the acupressure mat for several weeks. The continuous contraction of muscles will add another stress to the body and will eventually cause unbearable headaches that will be eliminated if a session of acupressure is added to your day. It is also quite common that laying on your thighs or will definitely help with sciatic nerve pains and eventually reduce head aches and leg numbness. Migraine in the other hand cannot be fully treated with the use of acupressure mats, however this exercise will reduce the pains caused by migraine or sinusitis etc…
• Improved blood circulation
High blood pressure can cause severe damages to the body and may escalate into fatal issues. Taking care of your blood circulation and pressure is a must to enjoy a healthy lifestyle. First of all, you need to avoid any source of tension, enjoy some good night sleep and, most importantly, consider having an acupressure massage on your mat every night This massage consists of pressure applied by the tiny spikes on the surface that are specifically distributed to provide you with the most comfortable and natural meditation and triggers particular muscles that will relax and give more way to blood circulation and hence the decrease in blood pressure and improvement of blood circulation.
• More peaceful sleep
The main reasons for insomnia are body fatigue and headaches. The most useful and convenient way to get rid of both these factors in favour of your sleep is to start practising acupressure. As we already mentioned, relieving the contractions of muscles will be a huge help towards relaxation and pain free nights. The effect of better blood circulation will also positively affect your peace of mind. Once you start using acupressure mats you will find that your sleep becomes gradually better and by the end of the first month of this routine, you will be enjoying a more comfortable sleep every night.
• Improved mental health
Mental health plays a huge role in the balance of our life and taking care of that will be of great benefit. Our acupressure mats will let you enjoy euphoric 20 minutes of rest with results including the improvement of your physical distress and mental stability. Being under pressure will put more weight on your shoulders and not getting rid of that will eventually alter your wellbeing, therefore considering going for acupressure meditation techniques in an attempt to improve your mental health is where you need to start.
• Embracement of positive energy
The term “positive energy” itself is extreme. Well, it is natural and all gurus know the value of positive energy and its flow in your body. Starting your day with some yoga poses will help you create a shield of positive energy against all the stress and negativity you are going to encounter during that day, you can also add the acupressure part to your practice and consequently have a more enjoyable experience and all the positive energy you will need to lead a healthy lifestyle.
• Convenience for injuries
If you suffer from muscle injuries, we advise you to try going the acupressure treatment way because it may have great advantages in healing your muscles. In case you had broken bones or severe muscle or joint injuries, you will need to consult your personal doctor in order to get the clearance of trying acupressure mats.
• A natural way to relieve pains
To sum it all up, we should state that the combination of the previous reasons leads us directly into believing that the acupressure mat helps you get rid of all the pains bothering you in the most natural way possible. The spikes on the mat evenly apply pressure on the muscle they are applied on and the relief from contractions will entitle you to a better lifestyle. If you have never tried this practice, you should absolutely give it a try and relieve your body from the undesirable pains hence your wellbeing.
