Features and Benefits:
+ INCREASE ENERGY LEVELS + VITALITY + BLOOD FLOW. The 7,992 acupressure points stimulate vital muscles which follow ‘meridians’ or energy channels of the body, which some scientists think may be linked to the myofascial tissue around our muscles. Acupressure has been shown to help with fatigue and to increase energy levels.
+ ACTIVE RECOVERY FOR ATHLETES. Perfect for active individuals and athletes who run, bike, swim, golf, lift weights, workout or practice yoga to stimulate a healthy blood flow throughout your entire body. For those suffering from sports injuries, results of a study conducted at the University of Otago revealed promising findings that acupressure decreased the reported pain scores in athletes with acute injuries. The Ion Wellness Acupressure Mat is used by elite athletes to reduce muscle tension which helps relieve soreness.
+ DEEP RELAXATION THAT IMPROVES SLEEP. Softens the tension in muscles.
+ NATURAL PAIN RELIEF & ECO FRIENDLY. Natural form of pain relief. Acupuncture is with needles that pierce the skin, acupressure is non-invasive with manual pressure used to massage the acupoints. Use of an acupressure mat is found to have little or no side effects. Built using eco-friendly, heat press technology.
+ CONVENIENT. Convenient carry bag for travel and storage. Acupressure mats roll up just like a yoga mat, so they’re compact. Throw the bag in your car to lay on before and after marathons, bike races, or any workout.
How to use it:
- Sit on the mat anywhere that you would normally sit down – whether on a chair, while driving or on the couch to have the mat function as a cushion to facilitate blood flow to your legs.
- Stand on the mat to start your morning off on the right foot to activate the vital energy channels in your body through this critical reflex zone. Massaging your feet’s pressure points is good for your health.
- Lay on the mat before bedtime to have the best night’s rest that you have had in awhile. The acupoints relax the muscles in the back and neck to allow your body to sink into a truly relaxed state.
