Back discomfort, stress, and sleep issues can all be relieved with acupressure mats, which even celebrities like Miranda Kerr use.

Most people's to-do list does not include lying down on a mat with needles. Acupressure mats, on the other hand, claim to loosen muscles, relieve tension, promote sleep, and even help with cellulite! David Beckham (46), Miranda Kerr (38), and Pink (41) all have mats that they adore. Do they, however, work?

What is an acupressure mat, and how does it work?

The size of an acupressure mat is comparable to that of a small bath towel. When you buy it, it usually comes with an acupressure pad and a cylindrical neck cushion. Plastic needles are dispersed across the surface, applying pressure to the skin and muscles.

What is the mechanism behind it?

The mat employs acupressure principles but does not target specific areas. It distributes its focus evenly throughout the entire surface, effectively delivering pressure on acupuncture sites that promote blood flow and ease stress.

The needle mat can be worn with the upper body exposed, but a T-shirt or a piece of cloth between the mat and the back is also recommended. Approximately 6,000 tiny spikes protrude from the surface of the skin. It's very natural to experience some minor discomfort at first. However, after a brief period of familiarization, this dissipates. Users spend an average of 20 minutes on the needle mat. The time can, however, vary. Two to five minutes is adequate if you stand with your feet on the mat like actress Miranda Kerr does on Instagram.

What exactly does an acupressure mat do?

The effects of an acupressure mat differ from one person to the next. Depending on the state of one's body and mind. For some, it is solely physical, while for others, it aids in mental relaxation. The mat, for example, can help you relax after a hard day at the office by bringing your focus back to your body. It can also help relax the fascia and ease nagging tension.

It improves blood circulation in both the feet and the legs. It produces a sensation of peace if you use the mat shortly before bed. Stress reduction, improved sleep, enhanced energy levels, and relief from back pain, neck discomfort, and headaches are all advantages of using an acupressure mat.
