Acupressure mats are generally placed on a flat surface like beds, couches, or on the floor. If you are using your acupressure mat on the floor, feel free to use additional pieces of cloth in order to provide cushion, so long as you feel comfortable with the sensation.
Once you lie down, make sure to comfortably position your back (or any part of the body you are targeting) evenly on the spikes.
The length of each acupressure session can be scaled. For beginners, we recommend using it daily for at least 5 minutes; for intermediate users, we recommend using it daily for at least 15 minutes; and for advanced users, we recommend using daily it for at least 30 minutes.
The sensation produced by using an acupressure mat is known to produce a flood of endorphins. Just like exercise, the stimulation caused by the tiny spikes causes equally tiny reflexes in your skin, this encourages your body to release endorphins. Endorphins are the hormones primarily responsible for making you feel healthy and happy.
