WHAT HAPPENS ON THE SUKI MAT?
Here’s your body’s natural response when you lay down on the Suki Mat:
- 10-20 seconds: Your body encourages blood move to the back
- 2-4 mins: Your back gets warm from your blood flow
- 6-10 mins: The former stimulates a physiological response from the body to ease stress and soothe tension.
- 10-20 mins: The physiological response helps support relaxation in muscles, tension relief, and leaving you feeling blissed out.
By this time, the pain-relieving benefits of acupressure should begin to be felt. Many users experience decreased pain, boosted metabolism and relief from inflammation.
The pressure exerted by the tips on the body stimulates the release of endorphins and oxytocin. Stress levels decrease, sleep is facilitated, physical and mental tension melts away and there is a marked improvement in blood and lymph circulation.
The Suki Mat is a soft mat fitted with special tips that, through the countless therapeutic properties of acupressure and reflexology, can help relieve stress and fatigue, reduce muscle tension in the neck, shoulders and back, boost blood and lymph circulation and facilitate sleep.
Many of our customers, however, lie on their Suki acupressure mat simply to enjoy moments of deep relaxation, relieve physical and mental tension and devote a little time just to themselves...
According to the principles of acupressure, when the 6000+ small tips (made exclusively with non-toxic and non-allergenic materials) press into your skin, they make the nervous system send a series of impulses to the brain via the spinal cord, triggering the release of endorphins and oxytocin.
Endorphins are commonly known as the "hormones of wellbeing" as they are capable of blocking the transmission of pain signals, thereby generating a sensation of wellbeing and reducing muscle and joint pain. Oxytocin is instead known as the "hormone of love and serenity" since it brings about a feeling of general calmness along with a mild drowsiness (which can be of great help against stress, fatigue and sleep disorders).
Acupressure also boosts blood and lymph circulation, resulting in an increased inflow of blood to muscles and organs (beneficial against poor blood circulation, cellulite, etc.).
THE SUKI MAT CAN HELP WITH THESE AILMENTS
Tension in the back or back pain can have many causes. Stress, office work and sports are common reasons. Often the pain runs down to the neck and shoulders. Frequent massages are a popular way out. These are expensive in the long term. The one-time investment in an acupressure Suki Mat costs as much as a massage, but has a similar effect with each use.
Many organic and physical ailments have their local origin along the spine. The use of the Suki Acupressure Mat is usually a new, not yet tried use, which can be very helpful in pain relief.
