acupressure
[ak-yoo-presh-er] noun:

a type of massage in which pressure on the specific bodily sites described in acupuncture therapy is used to promote healing, alleviate fatigue and sleeplessness, improve circulation...

"I often use the mat in my business, as it is an excellent way to start a massage session, especially if there is a lot of tension. Sometimes you can experience an endorphin high from the acupressure mat, especially when lying on it for the first time but with regular use, you become more relaxed. I usually recommend the mat to people who have sleeping problems, muscle tension, or general pain."

q & a


Can anyone use the shanti® mat?
Yes, almost anyone can use the shanti® mat! Do consult your doctor first in case of documented medical diagnoses or concerns, and also consult your doctor if you have any of the below conditions:

* heart disease
* pregnant
* low blood pressure
* if you are taking blood thinning medication

 

How do I use the shanti® mat?
As a new shanti® acupressure mat user we recommend that you accustom your body gradually. And start out with the back position. Place your shanti® acupressure mat on a soft surface, a bed will work well, so will the floor or  even a chair. A pillow or rolled-up towel should be placed underneath your shanti® acupressure mat to support your neck. Carefully lie down on the acupressure mat in a comfortable position so that your skin rests in contact with the points. Relax. Breathe deeply.

 

How long will it take before I feel the benefits?
This is very different from person to person, but you should feel benefits after the first use.

 

Can I only use the shanti® mat on my back?
No, the shanti® mat can be used all over the body. From the back, nerves radiate out to the whole body which means that a back treatment gives effect to the entire body. However, the mat can be used on specific problem areas of the body. Please see "how to use" for more information. There is also a brochure that comes with your shanti mat that will describe in detail how to use the shanti® mat.

 

Can I clean the shanti® mat?
If you need to wash your shanti® mat, please hand wash it in lukewarm water and hang to dry. Please do not use washing machines or dryers, as the plastic spikes can be damaged.

 

How many pressure points does the shanti® mat have?
The mat consists of 230 flower nails, and each flower nail has 27 points. A total of 6210 points. Each pressure point is equally sharp.

 

How does the shanti® mat promote relaxation?
When lying on the acupressure mat, the flower nails put pressure on your acupressure points. Your blood circulation will start to improve and muscle tension will dissipate. This indicates that your body is releasing endorphins and oxytocin. Endorphins are your body’s “feel good” hormones that are usually released during exercise, sex, and massage. Oxytocin on the other hand gives a deep sense of relaxation and allows you to fall, and to stay, asleep more easily.
The shanti® mat is an effective and easy to use acupressure pain relief device. The plastic spikes are precisely arranged to best stimulate the body’s internal abilities to heal itself!

 

Is it painful to use the shanti® mat?
For the first few minutes you may experience some pain, this pain will subside. If your skin is very sensitive, you may want to start out with a thin cloth between yourself and the shanti® mat. However, this will lessen the effect of the treatment. As humans we all have a different sensitivity to pain and certain medical conditions can make us more sensitive to pain. Try it out until you find the right level of sensation. The “nails” of the mat have a rounded tip and cannot harm you. But even those with a low pain threshold can use the shanti® acupressure mat.  It then becomes especially important to listen to your body’s signals and place something between the shanti mat and your skin, if the pain your experience becomes too much.

 

Is it dangerous to lie on the mat for too long?
No. To start with we would suggest that you lie on the mat for 10 minutes, if you feel like you can lie on it for longer, please do so. Gradually increase the time spent on the mat.

 

For how long and how often should I use the shanti® mat?
Initially, around 10 minutes on the mat may be enough, but you can gradually increase your sessions to 20-40 minutes.  It is not harmful to spend longer time on the mat, or even if you fall asleep on the mat.  Use your shanti® acupressure mat whenever you have time and feel the urge. As with any therapy or exercise, regularity is the key to success! That is why we recommend daily use of the shanti acupressure mat for optimum results. With regular use, deep, chronic tension and stress can be released and you can experience a long-lasting sense of ease and well-being. Regular use also promotes the release of endorphins and oxytocin, and therefore helps us to be more relaxed, sleep better, and be happier! shanti® acupressure mat is beneficial for all ages.
