How It Works
The Spoonk Mat is based on the principles of the Indian bed of nails and Japanese shiatsu massage. They may stimulate specific reflex points throughout the body to release blocked energy, ease tense muscles and create deep mental and physical relaxation. On your Spoonk Mat, 6,210 small spikes provide equal pressure on the body. You simply lay on it, ensuring that your “trouble areas” are covered by the mat’s spikes—and the mat does the rest! The mat’s spikes may stimulate blood circulation, relax tense muscles and induce "feel good" hormones (endorphins and oxytocin) that release feelings of wellbeing and calm.
What is Acupressure?
Acupressure is an ancient healing art, originating in India and developed in Japan as shiatsu massage. Traditional Chinese medicine uses acupressure as one of its techniques to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. Fingers, thumbs and tools such as an acupressure mat press body points called reflex areas. When reflex areas on the body are pressed, it prompts the body to increase blood circulation and release blocked energy. As a result, acupressure encourages the body to balance itself, easing muscle tension and relieving pain.
Frequently Asked Questions:
When is the best time to use my acupressure mat?
It depends. If you would like to energize yourself for the day, you may want to use your mat in the morning. If you feel stressed and need time to refocus and rebalance, you can use your mat during the day. If you are exhausted or overwhelmed and have trouble falling asleep, you may use the mat before going to bed. That’s the beauty of having your own acupressure mat—you can give yourself an acupressure treatment whenever you need it, whenever you want it. Regardless of when you use your mat, the results include increased blood circulation, a sense of calm and a feeling of health and wellbeing.
How does the Spoonk Mat help my body relax?
For how long should I lie on the Spoonk Mat?
The Spoonk acupressure mat has 6,210 plastic spikes. When these spikes are applied to your skin, they stimulate the nerve endings which stimulate blood flow. With increased blood circulation, your body becomes warm. Tight muscles relax. Muscle pain subsides. Feelings of stress and anxiety dissipate. A sense of calm settles in.
If you are new to acupressure, Spoonk recommends beginning with a 5 or 10 minute session. Once you become accustomed to the sensation of the spikes pressing against your skin, gradually lengthen your session to 15, 20 or even 40 minutes. To experience ongoing physical and emotional benefits, Spoonk recommends a daily session of approximately 25 minutes.
Is the acupressure mat safe for children to use?
Children older than seven years of age can benefit from acupressure treatment. It calms them and helps them to relax. Some children use the Spoonk Mat at bedtime. Children should be supervised by an adult while using the mat. Because a child’s skin may be more sensitive to the spikes, a child may need to wear a T-shirt to be comfortable.
Is the acupressure mat safe for pregnant women?
If you are pregnant, consult your physician before using the acupressure mat. Spoonk cannot recommend the Spoonk Mat for pregnant women although they know pregnant women who use it.
I have high blood pressure. Should I use the mat?
Some people report that their blood pressure decreases after a session on their acupressure mat. Spoonk recommends that you consult with your physician and consider that he or she monitors your blood pressure levels before and after using the Spoonk Mat. The Spoonk Mat is neither a substitute for blood pressure medication nor is it a cure for your medical condition.
