USE EVEN PRESSURE

Distribute your weight across the mat.

POINTS ARE SHARP

Be careful when handling the mat or rolling it out to avoid scratching yourself or snagging other items.

MINIMIZE MOVEMENT

Once on the acupressure mat, avoid scooting or sliding. Relax and let the points do all the work!

START ON A SOFT SURFACE

Try using the acupressure mat on the couch or bed and then move up to harder surfaces as you become more comfortable.

USE A THIN SHIRT

Start with a thin layer of clothing to get used to the sensation of the acupressure points.

WORK UP TO BARE SKIN

For best results, lay on the mat with bare skin. You’ll build up a tolerance to the points over time.
