The AcuTech Mat — Holistic Wellness Redefined

Our precisely constructed AcuTech Mat effectively uses the science of acupressure to promote wellness and relaxation by enhancing blood flow in muscles and tissues.

Thousands of massage points cover the AcuTech Mat. These meticulously designed (tiny) spikes apply pressure to bodily parts that come into touch with the surface. 

Just 15 minutes on the mat, you'll get a better night's sleep and wake up rejuvenated, as if you've just had a massage.

Benefits

When your body senses pain from the mat, your brain releases endorphin chemicals, which are basically the body’s natural pain killers.

Below are some of the benefits of using AcuTech Mat

  • 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 and stimulates the body to release feel-good chemicals
  • Promotes better sleep: By promoting healthy blood flow, our mat can stimulate the release of endorphins that promote relaxation and lead to better sleep 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 through the meridians, thereby restoring health and balance.
  • Helps in muscle relaxation: 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. 
  • Works as a natural pain reliever: Many health practitioners advocate acupressure since it has been shown to release endorphins. Endorphins are sometimes referred to as "the body's natural painkillers" since they help to relieve pain and induce bliss.
  • 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. 
  • May reduce back and neck pain: When lying on your back, our mat can help stimulate acupuncture points on the back and neck that can help reduce pain.

How to use it? 

Acupressure mats can take some time to get used to. The spikes are sharp and might cause some discomfort initially before they warm up the body and make you feel good. 

You will grow accustomed to the sensation and have more leeway with this guideline as time goes on.

Place the mat on a suitable surface. Your bed or sofa is a good place to start with. Once you get more experienced with it, you may place the mat onto the floor.

Try sitting on it. You can also place the mat on the chair by inserting the loop (provided at the back of the mat) around the head of the chair, so that your butt and lower back have direct contact with the mat.

Tip: wearing a light shirt or placing a thin fabric over the mat will help you acclimatize to the feeling of the mat. For best results, we recommend using the mat in contact with bare skin. 

Breathe slowly and lie down gently on the mat. Place your neck on the elevated cushion (provided for neck support) with your weight evenly distributed on the mat. 

For comfort, ensure that the spikes do not press against the skull.

Our AcuTech Mat also comes with three detachable panels which can be used separately for targeted areas like feet, hands or upper back by unzipping them. 

Begin by using the mat for 5-7 minutes at a time and gradually increase as you become more comfortable. Use the mat for 15-20 minutes for best results.

Use consistently. AcuTech Mat takes time getting used to, but once you get comfortable using it, it will become your go-to personal massage therapist!

Finally, we'd like to point out that these mats are unlikely to do harm to anyone, our high quality AcuTech Mat is made from 100% cotton that has been dyed with natural hypoallergenic colors, filled with natural coconut fiber and covered in spikes created from 100% HIPS plastic.

Some Consideration: We advise against utilizing or sleeping on the mat for more than 30 minutes.
