My neck … my back … no we’re not referring to the early ’00s song by Khia. If you find yourself griping about body aches and pains, welcome to the club. Your first initiation task? Purchase this acupressure mat. It’s sure to become your new at-home savior, and here’s why.
As Juhi Singh, acupuncturist, Chinese herbalist, integrative health specialist, and founder of The Juhi Ash Center, shared with us, “Acupressure is the ancient technique for opening the flow of energy in your body. The ritual identifies certain points along invisible channels in your body known as meridians. Meridians carry our jitters and joy throughout our bodies, and blockages cause mental stress and physical distress.”
Practicing acupressure is said to relieve neck, back, and shoulder aches, reduce headache pain and stress levels, promote better sleep, and increase energy. This acupressure mat provides similar benefits to seeing a specialist but all from the comfort of your home. It has gentle stimulators that activate different points throughout the body to help alleviate pain.
