People that have heart problems, high blood pressure, and pregnant women should NOT use the Shakti mat. How Long Do You Have to Lie on the Shakti Mat?

Look for an acupressure mat with foam padding and 6,000 to more than 8,000 spikes to hit as many pressure points as possible. We reviewed acupressure mats for features including materials, spikes, size, and extra features like an included pillow or a carrying case. Constructed with durable, easy-to-clean materials, the mat features an ergonomic design to add to the overall comfort. At 28.5 x 16.5 inches, it's large enough to target several areas at once, yet extremely portable thanks to the addition of a carrying bag. Use it on the floor as well as on a bed, couch, or chair depending on your recovery needs. Lie down slowly: Lie down with your weight evenly distributed on the mat. This will help you avoid injury from the points.

It is a better choice for pain-sensitive people that can not endure the first few minutes of lying on a thinner mat without any cushioning. Acupressure mats are gaining popularity as an at-home, holistic treatment tool for post-workout recovery and overall stress relief. Similar to acupuncture, acupressure is intended to help chi (Qi), or energy, flow freely through the body by stimulating the body's pressure points. I must admit, the first few times I used the Shakti mat, I found it quite uncomfortable. Laying yourself down onto a spiked mat can feel like you’re subjecting yourself to some form of a bed of nails, medieval torture.

And with regular use, you may find that your overall quality of sleep improves, allowing you to wake up feeling refreshed and energized. The general idea behind a Shakti Mat (and its competitors) is that the multiple spikes attached to each mat are specially designed to target your muscles in the most relaxing way. Now, we realise that 'multiple spikes' and 'relaxing' don't exactly sound like they naturally work together in a sentence, but the pain isn't actually all that bad (we'll get into that properly in a minute...). It doesn’t take long for the sensation to shift though – likely because the brain is releasing endorphins or some other feel-good chemical! Then the entire area floods with warmth and lying on the Shakti Mat begins to feel utterly delicious.

One brave Cosmopolitan UK staffer was keen to try out The Shakti Mat and said: "Initially I was wary of gently lowering my bare skin down onto a thousand pointy, metal spikes, but after doing so slowly, I was surprised to find it actually didn't hurt all that much. At first, the sensation was similar to being sunburnt but after a few minutes (and some deep breaths), I got used to it and started to – dare I say? – enjoy it." Like our writer said, some deep breaths were required before she got used to the mat and began to feel its results. But certain breathing techniques are certified wellness tactics and are often used in other practices like meditation and yoga to relieve stress and help you relax. Do not put away the Shakti Mat if you don’t experience pain relief after the first session. This is not medication, it’s a natural method and it’s not a magic potion. Acupressure therapy is similar to acupuncture, but the spikes on the mats do not puncture the skin. The unique design of acupressure mats allows them to hit and stimulate thousands of points on your body at once, which can lead to pain relief and relaxation. When using a Shakti Mat, it is important to remember not to press too hard as this could cause discomfort rather than relief.

The Shakti Mat can be used in combination with other relaxation techniques such as yoga, deep breathing exercises, or even listening to calming music while lying on top of it. Combining these different methods can create an even more powerful effect that will help you feel refreshed and energized after each session. 3. Adjust Pressure Settings While there’s not a specific time limit for lying on an acupressure mat (under 30 minutes is frequently recommended), lying on spikes for too long can cause bruising or damage to the skin’s surface.Materials: Acupressure mats are made from a range of highly synthetic and eco-friendly materials. The materials used to make the mat are usually one of the biggest factors in the price. You’ll want to look for a mat within your budget made of durable materials you’re comfortable using. Acupuncture is puncturing the skin with needles; acupressure is applying enough pressure on an acupuncture point to stimulate it," explains Sahar Hooti, acupuncturist and founder of AcuCare Clinic. She adds that this stimulation can reduce your stress, improve sleep, boost energy, relieve muscle tension and ease pain, thanks to the needles helping to regulate levels of cortisol, the stress hormone. The mat consists of hundreds of plastic spikes which are made from food-grade polypropylene material. These spikes are arranged in rows and columns on the surface of the mat and provide a gentle massage when you lie down on it or press your body against it. Each spike stimulates specific areas in your body by pressing into them gently but firmly, creating pressure points that can be beneficial for relaxation and healing purposes. The more spikes on a mat, the easier it is to adjust to the treatment and the more pressure points you’ll hit. Most quality mats have anywhere from 6,000 to more than 8,000 spikes.
