Our Acutech mat is designed to produce similar results as acupressure massage. Its 4000+ plastic spikes apply pressure on many different parts of the body at once, helping release tension and promote blood flow. When your body senses pain from the mat, your brain releases endorphin chemicals, which are basically the body’s natural opioids. These endorphins then interact with opioid receptors in your brain to reduce the perception of pain.
Below are some of the benefits of using the AcuTech mat:
Soothes headaches: The spikes on the neck cushion press against the nape of the neck, where a key acupuncture point for headaches (GB20) is located, which can help relieve headaches.
Reduces lower back pain: When lying on your back, our AcuTech mat can help stimulate acupuncture points on the back that can help reduce back pain. To relieve lower back strain, bring both knees up to your chest and rock left and right to massage the acupressure points on your lower back.
Helps in easing neck pain: Our AcuTech mat comes with a semicircular cushion which can be placed on the nape of your neck to release neck pain. This is equivalent to a neck massage which can help calm tight muscles and release tension around the neck.
Lowers stress and anxiety: A simple act of lying on the mat may help to manage some of the effects of stress and anxiety on the body. Pressure on acupuncture points mobilizes energy inside the channels, stimulates communication between the nervous system and the body to release feel-good chemicals.
Alleviates foot pain: Each foot contains over 7,000 nerve endings, and different zones correspond to different organs in reflexology. Our AcuTech mat provides natural healing by activating the reflex points on the soles of your feet and promoting blood flow, allowing fresh nutrients and oxygen to the muscles within your feet.
Promotes better sleep: By promoting healthy blood flow, an acupressure mat can stimulate the release of endorphins that promote relaxation and lead to sleep that will come more easily and is of higher quality.
Enhances energy levels: The energy meridians in the body and mind can be influenced by pressing against the acupuncture points: the spikes on the mat unblock the obstructed flow of energy and blood and reestablish normal flow through the meridians, thereby restoring health and balance.
Helps in muscle relaxation: After a few minutes laying or standing on the AcuTech Mat, endorphins begin to flow throughout the body enabling the user to enter into a state of euphoric pleasure and total relaxation.
Works as a natural pain reliever: Many health practitioners advocate acupressure since the method has been shown to release endorphins. Endorphins are comparable to opioids in how they operate. They are sometimes referred to as "the body's natural painkillers" since they help to relieve pain and induce bliss.
Improves blood circulation: Increased blood circulation helps you recover faster and be healthier. Providing more blood supply to your muscles means muscles get more oxygen and nutrients so they can heal faster. It also helps in removing the toxins and lactic acid out of your system.
Since our three-paneled AcuTech Mat is customizable, you can use it on any portion of your body. It may be unzipped and folded for easy storage, and any section of it can be used as needed.
