Acupuncture for Lower Back Pain Relief, Relaxation & a Better Nights Sleep

Acupressure Mat for Pain Relief and Muscle Relaxation

Acupuncture is an ancient (developed in Asia over 5,000 years ago) and proven treatment method for all types of pains, tension and stress.

“Acupressure” is a non-needle form of acupuncture with no puncturing of your skin. Acupressure & acupuncture are ever growing in popularity mainly due to the fact they are a totally natural choice for those suffering from pain or stress.

Pressure points are scattered all throughout your body, when pressure is applied or insertion of a needle in acupuncture triggers the release of muscle tension, tightness, fires a release of endorphins and most importantly a reduction in pain. Acupressure can be performed by oneself by using your fingers or thumbs to apply pressure to these particular pressure points in your body.

A great and simple alternative to the “self-massage” type of acupressure is the use of an acupressure mat. A padded form mat, (often including a pillow) which is covered with thousands of small plastic spikes. Most mats will contain 5,000 + spikes or “acupressure points”.

These mats are safe & simple to use, require no skill or knowledge of the location of pressure points. Commonly self massage is limited by finger and thumb fatigue, which can set in after only 1 or 2 minutes. That’s why these mats are so amazing. You simply lie down, relax and feel your tension, stress and pain melt away. Standard or recommend use time would be from anywhere from 5 to 25 minutes. Depending on how accustomed your body has become to the experience.

The simulation of the mats to your body increases activation in your nervous system, blood circulation, the uptake level of oxygen in your body which as an added bonus helps to improve the quality of your sleep, digestion and metabolism.

I religiously use my mat before bed each night, and I find it helps me relax and fall asleep much faster and often while lying on the mat before getting into bed. I also occasionally stand on the mat in the mornings or at nights to help relief from sore or tired feet if I’ve been standing or walking more than normal.

Acupressure mats are also used to help:

  • Relieve stress
  • Relieve insomnia
  • Relieve headaches
  • Relieve muscle tension
  • Relieve back pain
  • Relieve neck pain
  • Relieve shoulder pain
  • Relieve foot & heel pain
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Improve blood circulation
  • Promote relaxation and well-being

In a Hillsborough North Carolina research study on the benefits of using an acupressure mat, Dr. Tanya Zilberter reported the below impressive results:

  • 98% reported pain relief
  • 96% reported relaxation
  • 94% reported improvement in the quality of sleep
  • 81% reported an increase in energy levels

As any suffer of chronic pain knows that there are many pain relief products out there, but if you are searching for a totally natural and reliable product which won’t require a continual expense or side effects then I highly recommend you start using an acupressure mat for both body and mind relaxation. Hopefully you will find using your mat can ease your pains instantly.
