What is an acupressure mat?
An acupressure mat is a mat that has thousands of spikes and is filled with either foam or a coconut fibre mat. These spikes press on the skin and are meant to stimulate pressure points. A needle mat is often used for self-massage or as an adjunct to acupuncture or massage therapy.
There are many different types of acupressure mats on the market, so it is important to choose the right one for you.
If you want to buy an acupressure mat, you should make sure that it has the right intensity for you and a high-quality cover. An acupressure mat with a cushion is also an advantage because it increases the application possibilities and you can treat several parts of the body at the same time. Especially the neck and back of the head are important to prevent headaches and tense neck muscles. Look for mats that come with tips or a guide to help you get the most out of your session.

The effects of acupressure mats are manifold and acupressure mats can be used for various purposes, e.g. to reduce tension, sleep disorders, stress, cramps, blood circulation and to remove harmful substances. In addition, acupressure mats can also help reduce cellulite, indigestion, anxiety, pain relief and back pain. Finally, they can also be helpful for nausea.
A number of studies have already been conducted on the effectiveness of the acupressure mat. You can find some answers in the article"Studies on the effectiveness of the acupressure mat".
If you are struggling with back pain, you may be looking for relief in all sorts of places. Maybe you've tried traditional methods like massage or physiotherapy, or more alternative methods like acupuncture. But have you ever considered an acupressure mat?
There is some scientific evidence to support the use of acupressure for pain relief. One study found that using an acupressure mat effectively relieved lower back pain. One of the main causes of back pain is muscular tension. This can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor posture, stress and repetitive movements.
An acupressure mat can help loosen muscles and reduce tension-related back pain. The mat works by applying pressure to specific points on the body. This pressure stimulates the release of endorphins, which are natural painkillers. Acupressure mats are a safe and effective way to relieve back pain.

If you struggle with sleep disorders such as insomnia or restless leg syndrome, it might be worth trying such a mat. However, talk to your doctor first to make sure the mat is suitable for you.
Lose weight with an acupressure mat
There is some scientific evidence for the use of acupressure for weight loss. In one study, it was found that using an acupressure mat effectively helps people lose weight.
The main reason acupressure mats are effective for weight loss because they help stimulate the release of endorphins. Endorphins are hormones that act as natural painkillers and have been shown to help reduce stress.
When you reduce stress, your body can function better, which can lead to weight loss. In addition, using an acupressure mat can improve circulation and lymphatic drainage. This can lead to a reduction in water retention and bloating, both common problems that can contribute to weight gain. So if you're struggling to lose weight, you should try acupressure! You'll be surprised at how well it works.
Tension and headaches
This is a difficult question to answer because everyone reacts differently to acupressure. Some users only need a few sessions before you get used to the mat and can relax and relieve your symptoms. For others, it can take weeks or even months to see results.
When using an acupressure mat for the first time, be patient and give your body time to get used to it.
It is also important to use the mat regularly - once or twice a day is ideal - so that your body can get used to the feeling of pressure. If you don't see results after a few weeks of regular use, the mat may not be right for you. There are many different types of acupressure mats on the market. It is worth trying a different one to see if it works better for you.
Is an acupressure mat dangerous and are there side effects?
There is no evidence that an acupressure mat is dangerous. Some people may experience skin irritation or bruising, but this is usually due to incorrect use of the mat.
Pregnant women, people with heart problems, epilepsy or skin diseases such as neurodermatitis or acne should avoid using an acupressure mat.

What our customers say
I am totally thrilled with my new Backlaxx accupressure mat. With the help of the accompanying audio book, I was able to significantly relieve my back pain in just a few days. It is so easy and relaxing that I now look forward to it every evening. My friends who have tried the mat with me are also enthusiastic. I have finally found a product for my daily well-being.
The mat, quality, workmanship, materials, etc. are simply mega. I compared for a long time and finally decided on Backlaxx, and I still don't regret it. My girlfriend didn't think much of it at first and now lies on it more often than I do! So everything is perfect, my expectations have been exceeded and I give it 5 stars.
I've had the Backlax mat for a few days now. I have not yet been able to incorporate it into my daily rhythm. But on the days I have used it, I have already been able to see how it works on the body. I can only recommend it to others. I also like the workmanship and the fact that resources are used sparingly in the production and even in the shipping materials.
