Shakti Mat - where it all began
The Shakti mat is "in", no question about it. Used regularly and correctly, it can work wonders. It is commercially available both as an acupressure mat and as an acupuncture mat. For the sake of simplicity, the term “acupressure mat” is used in this article.
We all know today that conventional medicine is not the last word. The suppression of symptoms does not change the cause of the disease - regardless of whether the disorder is of a physical or mental nature. More and more we are reflecting on traditional procedures that have been around for a long time.
The acupressure technique, which has its origins in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), causes blocked energy (Qi; also Chi) to be released and activated throughout the body. Quickly noticeable results: pain relief and relaxation.
For centuries, acupuncture/acupressure, especially in Asia, have been helping people to relax and get going. Here, people knew early on about the great importance of inner balance and improving or maintaining health.
Luckily, people here in Germany are increasingly turning to the old knowledge of acupressure and are achieving amazing results with it.
What does a Shakti mat do?
The Shakti mat is a kind of nail mat with pointed hard plastic nubs. When you lie on it, the pressure is distributed over these many small spikes, which in turn stimulate the skin and underlying tissue. This stimulation also reaches the organ and nervous system along the meridians.
With regular use, the mat has a whole range of advantages in the end result. It helps improve energy, reduce pain, and promote relaxation and the all-important healthy sleep.
The acupressure mat is promising if it is not exclusively responsible for relaxation, especially with the following disorders and diseases:
- Headache migraine
- neck/back pain
- Sciatica pain in leg/back
- Fibromyalgia pain
- stress-related disorders
- sleep disorders
- general tension
Endorphins (happy hormones) are also increasingly released. spread their beneficial effects like the body's own painkillers - without any artificial chemicals. As a result, your energy levels can also improve and the body begins to heal. And: If you are relaxed, you live more consciously and are less susceptible to illnesses of any kind.
Acupressure at home - daily if you wish!
Shakti Mat - your application possibilities
Depending on the desired effect, you can use the Shakti mat in a wide variety of ways. The classic: lay your back on the acupressure mat for 20 - 30 minutes and relax. You can either enjoy the silence or listen to wonderful music or a podcast.
The feet and the associated nerve tracts also benefit by standing on the mat (approx. 5 minutes) or walking over it (keyword: foot reflex zone massage). The latter, however, needs to be practiced carefully, otherwise it can become a bit painful.
To treat cellulite ("orange peel"), simply use the Shakti mat as a seat on the chair.
Some mats are equipped with an additional neck support, which additionally stimulates the neck and the back of the head when lying down.
If you work a lot on the computer, your hands and arms are under a lot of strain. Simply lie face down in front of the Shakti mat and support your forearms and hands on the Shakti mat (approx. 15 minutes). This prevents u. numbness and provides lightness in the forearms and hands.
The acupressure mat also helps with feelings of anxiety and digestive problems. To do this, lie down with your stomach and/or chest on the prickly surface (approx. 10 minutes). Relaxation soon spreads in the chest area or the necessary relief plus a pleasant feeling of warmth in the case of digestive problems.
There are many possible uses.
Important: Pregnant women should avoid using it as certain acupressure points can induce premature labor. During and after birth, on the other hand, there is nothing to be said against it.
