‘FINALLY found my solution for deeper sleep’: Amazon shoppers are reporting better sleep and targeted pain relief with this acupressure mat (and it’s currently less than £23 in the Amazon End of Summer Sale)
Acupressure has been used for centuries as an effective way to release pain. Similar to the ancient traditional Chinese practice of acupuncture, acupressure applies pressure to hundreds of points in your body all at once.
An acupressure mat is an accessible way to try out the practice from home. A foam mat with hundreds of spikes on, the unique design targets thousands of acupressure points at once, resulting in natural pain relief and relaxation.
If you’re looking to see what all the hype is about, then the Supportiback Wellness Therapy Acupressure Mat is an affordable but highly reviewed option. It may sound like an instrument of torture, but Amazon shoppers are raving about the benefits calling it ‘a brilliant product’ and ‘really beneficial for back pain and promoting sleep’.
The Supportiback Wellness Therapy Acupressure Mat is now on sale for £22.40 and can help release endorphins that block pain, and help relax the muscles in your back, neck and feet
What’s more, the Supportiback mat is now on reduced in the Amazon End of Summer Sale for only £22.40 down from £33.48- a savvy saving of 33 per cent.
While a massage admittedly looks and sounds more appealing than a mat with plastic nails, the hundreds of reviews suggest it really does work. And, at under £23, it is a far cheaper alternative to deep tissue massages.
If you’re looking to relieve tension in your upper and lower back, treat tight muscles and melt away stress, then incorporating the Supportiback Acupressure Mat into your daily routine could provide some serious benefits.
While lying on a bed of nails doesn’t sound the most comfortable experience, the brand has come up with features to make it as comfortable as possible, including contoured alignments that follow your natural shape to target and relieve upper and lower back pain.
The brand recommends lying down on the mat for 10-15 minutes a day. While some users experience a little pain at first, as it subsides, many have reported their body loses tension and starts to feel more relaxed. Many reviews say to wear a t-shirt on your first go.
‘I was amazed at how quickly I got used to the mat. Literally the second time I used it I didn’t need to wear a t-shirt. It’s a prickly yet nice kind of pain, and you can feel the warmth running through your back as the blood circulates to the area.’
The mat helps you relieve back pain, stimulate nerve endings, improve blood circulation, and de-stress after a long day
With over 1,300 ratings and an average score of 4.5 out of 5, the Supportiback Acupressure Mat has impressed hundreds of shoppers.
One delighted customer wrote: ‘Wow! I was extremely sceptical as to how it would work, but it arrived this morning and having lay on it for 40 mins I can safely say for the first time in 3 years I feel pain-free and have done for 5 hours. It works miracles, I enjoy the sensation too, it’s sharp at first and stings for a few minutes when you get off, but it’s not painful at all.’
Another agreed, writing: ‘After a simple 15 minutes of sitting down on the mat I certainly feel more relaxed, less stressed and less tension. I am sure I will start to see the real results as I continue to use it where I aim to use it on bare skin.’
A third even commented on how it helps you sleep better, writing ‘Finally a solution for deeper sleep’.
‘since I started using the mat before I go to sleep for about 20 min in bed, I have had the BEST sleep I’ve had since I was a teenager.’ They went on to write ‘my sleep is so much deeper than its been in years.’
