I just bought this acupressure mat based on the recommendations here. I have found it works best when I lay on my bed with it. I also really like to stand on it while watching tv, it's quite relaxing. I didn't have any pain when I first tried it out but I would suggest starting with small chunks of time to adjust to the pressure. This would make a fun gift!
Yes to all of the above! I mostly lay on it before bed while reading. (After about 15-20 min, I can't keep my eyes open, I'm so relaxed). I'll use it on long car rides, sit on it during the work day to stay calm/ease anxiety. My aunt uses hers on her face for TMJ/pressure headaches. I have stood up on it (slowly!) for a few min for blood flow and total calm... it can be used in so many ways, Liz Pearce !
This mat is amazing. You lie on it (carefully - it’s pokey!) and literally feel your entire body relaxing. I ordered it from Buddhi- my friend’s company that’s also a great cancer survivor & thriver community)
I love my accupressure mat, feels amazing on a tense back! My kids (age 7 and 12) have used it too!
