You have likely heard about acupressure, an ancient Chinese technique based on applying pressure in certain spots in the body to release the Chi (Qi) energy.
This, according to these teachings, helps alleviate back pain, headaches, and stress.
Does it work? Well, what I can tell you is that there is already an FDA approved acupressure mat in the US. And they do not approve any product or supplement that claims to bring any benefit if it doesn't. The only drawback is that it costs more than $225.
So I decided to talk to our manufacturers, produce an affordable version that anyone starting with acupressure can use, and try it myself. I don't suffer from back pain or headaches, but I am under a lot of stress so that I would be able to see for myself.
What I can tell you about trying it is that I definitely feel more relaxed after lying down on it for about 20 minutes.
Thanks to its multiple massage pads, it creates a pleasing sensation, which makes your body release endorphins, which in turn creates an overall sensation of well-being.

Lay down on it slowly and placing as large a body surface in contact with the mat and evenly distributed as possible in order to prevent scratching your skin.
It may take a few days to get used to it, or the first minutes of each "session", but the sensation soon turns into a very relaxing one.
