Shanti Acupressure Mat

Why use a Shanti acupressure mat?

Regular use of your Shanti mat will assist in releasing deep, chronic tension and stress promoting the release of endorphins and oxytocin aiding in relaxation and better sleep.  When lying on your back on the mat nerves radiate out to the whole body giving a back treatment that is effective for the entire body.

Experience a long-lasting sense of ease and well-being.

How to use your mat

It is recommended that you accustom your body gradually starting out with the back position. Place your shanti acupressure mat on the floor or bed. To support your neck you can use a pillow or rolled up towel. Carefully lie down on the acupressure mat in a comfortable position so that your skin rests in contact with the points.

Relax. Breathe deeply.

At first you may experience some discomfort but this will quickly subside. If your skin is very sensitive, you can start by putting a thin blanket between yourself and the shanti mat. ( this will lessen the effect of the treatment).  Distribute your weight evenly over the contact points. Start with just 10 mins then gradually increase your sessions to 20-40 mins. You will soon get used to lying on the mat and look forward to how it feels with direct contact on your skin!

Lying on your back – stimulates acupressure points along the spine soothing back problems

Sitting in a chair – loosens tension in the lumbar and buttocks

Feet – stand on the mat distributing your weight evenly. This position works on the reflexology zones giving an overall effect on the entire body. It also enhances stability and helps you to feel more grounded. This is one of my favourite uses for the mat. It is extremely grounding giving you a wonderful feeling of connecting to the earth.

Lying on your stomach – get very accustomed to doing back treatments first as this position can be intense and powerful. It can improve your metabolism and loosen tightness in the diaphragm and respiratory muscles.

Neck: A  pillow or rolled-up towel should be placed underneath your shanti acupressure mat to support your neck. This position is very good for relieving tension in the shoulders and, in particular, for relaxing the trapezoid muscles that run all the way up to the base of the neck.

Keep your shanti acupressure mat where you can see it and use it every day!

With regular use of the Shanti Accupressure mat blood circulation improves relieving muscle tension and pain from aching joints.
