Many Swedish massage therapists use acupressure mats to prepare their clients' muscles before a massage. However, the benefits of the acupressure mat can be experienced conveniently in your own home whenever you like, for less then the cost of a massage or acupressure session.

If you experience back pain, insomnia, migraine headaches, or simply want to relax after a long or stressful day, the hälsa wellness mat might be able to help. These mats are widely used in Europe, primarily in Sweden, where the hälsa mat was designed. The mat contains 8,820 calibrated acupressure points to provide the most beneficial experience.
- How do I use the hälsa wellness mat?
Place the hälsa wellness mat on a flat surface and carefully lay down with your back on the mat. Breathe deeply, relax and distribute your weight evenly across the mat. You may experience discomfort for a few minutes, but this will subside.
For best results, use the mat against your bare skin. First time users may experience higher discomfort levels. In the early stages of using the hälsa wellness mat, you may place a thin sheet of cotton or a t-shirt between your body and the mat to reduce discomfort. As you become used to the sensation, you will be able to remove the cloth layer.
- How do I use the hälsa wellness pillow?
Place the hälsa wellness pillow on a flat surface and carefully lie down with the back of your head and neck against the pillow. Like the mat, you can lie down with your bare skin directly on the pillow or with a thin cloth layer in between to soften the sensitivity of the spikes. If you use your pillow regularly, you will become more used to it and be able to remove the cloth layer.
