Acupressure is the practice of applying pressure to specific points on the body. A few minutes of lying on the Sleep Induction Mat stimulates acupressure points along your back. This quickly increases blood circulation, which eases your body into a deep relaxation response. The result: improved sleep quality and tension release.
How to use it
Lie on the mat about 10 minutes before you want to sleep. Relax, breathe deeply and find your zen. Use it to relieve tension in your head and neck, massage your feet and stimulate energy. Slowly increase your time to 30-40 minutes as you get comfortable.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What does it feel like?
When you first lie down on the mat, your nervous system will react because, well, you’re resting on gently pointed spikes. This is when you want to relax and breathe deeply. After a few minutes, the pressure will be replaced by the spread of warmth, indicating increased circulation. If the sensation is too intense, try wearing a T-shirt or placing a thin towel over the mat. Stay on the mat through the initial discomfort, and you’ll be rewarded with a natural relaxation response.
How long should you lie on an acupressure mat?
Start about 10 minutes before you want to sleep, and slowly increase the time up to 40 minutes as you get more comfortable. Ideal time on the mat will vary from person to person, so feel free to experiment.
How often should you use the Sleep Induction Mat?
Some people use their mat daily, while others use it as needed when they want to relax. It’s the perfect size to roll up and bring with you on the go, whether you’re traveling or want a quick mid-day recharge. Find a routine that works for you.
Are there any side effects?
Acupressure mats are safe to use as directed. Avoid using the mat if you have broken skin or a skin rash. To prevent scratches, lie down gently, and don’t slide against the mat. After an acupressure session, some people may feel soreness or redness at acupressure points. These side effects are temporary. Talk to your doctor if you have a medical condition before using an acupressure mat.
