I decided to get the suki mat as a natural way to reduce my stress and anxiety. It's doing wonders
I needed an easy way to relax so I got the suki mat.. I am already feeling the benefits. I am using it everyday for about 20 minutes!
My kitty loves it too! :D
I highly recommend
I love the Suki Mat and am surprised at how much relief I get from it
Arrived within the specified time, and the product is top notch. Takes a bit of getting used to, but well worth it!
Love my SUki mat! I've bought 3 for myself, my husband and my daughter
so happy with my purchase, communication was great and the product is very good quality.
Great product which is well constructed and quick delivery. Not a major problem but would have liked an instruction with delivery on how exactly to use mat and how long . Very pleased with product.
I love the suki mat! I sit the while day in front of a laptop so the mat is a great addition to any yoga exercises or back stretches. It really helps me to relax my back even more
Very happy with the mat and quick delivery.... Will recommend to any of my friends thank you.
Best ever, it relax me, giving healthy living.
So my mat and pillow arrived this morning, and as I took it out the bag I caught my finger on the spike and it hurt, so I wasn’t holding out much hope for my back and neck. How wrong I was!! I gingerly laid on it and for a couple of minutes it stung a bit but as I relaxed and took slow, deep breathes the ache in my neck and shoulder blades melted away, and I was only on it for 5 mins. Laid it on my bed earlier and used it for 10 mins and dozed off! Not brave enough to stand on it yet but very impressed so far.
Excellent treatment for cervical arthrosis
This has become addictive very quickly! Very relaxing at the end of the day. Bought to help with tension in my back and husband also using it for his neck
This thing is pretty nifty! I don't know whether or not it would solve any serious problems, but feels nice, has gotten rid of some headaches, certainly helps with muscular pain, and feels great with muscle soreness from exercise. I think its worth the price and definitely provides some temporary relief.
A couple of minutes of letting my body "melt" into the mat and the pain is replaced by a pure feeling of relaxation. It has helped with my chronic leg pain and back pain. You have to give it an honest try.
Really great would recommend it to anyone. Prompt service also.
I use it every night, it makes me focus and relax! If you are in doubt don't be, just get one!
The Suki mat helps me so much with my back pain issues. It looks a little bit scary (if you take a look at my back in the picture) but it's definitely worth every penny. You just feel great after a Suki Session, would highly recommend.
I sent the mat back and got my refund. It didn't work for me. Thank yo
All aspects of customer service have be exceeded, with superb service through out the whole process. I'm loving the Suki mat it's the perfect addition to my self care kit. Thank you!!
Was a bit skeptical before ordering, but now absolutely love my mat. I use every night for the ultimate relax
I use this mat for about 15 mins every morning while laying down on my back and using my meditation app. This has been an awesome addition to my daily routine. It seems to really awaken the body and release good endorphins.
Won't lie, it hurts when you first lay down. I shattered my leg to pieces a year ago and I am fairly tolerant to pain so I would not think it's just me being a wimp! That said after a couple of minutes and letting my body "melt" into the mat the pain is replaced by a pure feeling of relaxation. It has helped with my chronic leg pain and back pain due to my walking gait being off. You have to give it an honest try. If you don't practice and let all of your muscles relax it won't work. Keep trying a little each day, it will be worth it I promise!
First try I was a little nervous but it was actually quite nice and not as painful as I had imagined! Now a use it most days and my body knows what to expect :)
Been using the mat for a week and I find it painful at first but I'm at a stage now where the sharpness is enjoyable. It is very relaxing to the point that some times I fall asleep. For some reason I have dreams every night now ,where as before it was once in a blue moon.
Great customer service, parcel arrived quickly and both me and my partner love using it
For the first 5 min the mat hurts but then like magic that goes away and we have been known to fall asleep on our mats. The feeling in my back and shoulders after a 30min session is amazing and we have been having great sleeps at night after using the mat. We would recommend to anyone who is having trouble sleeping. Love our mat!
I've had lower back pain off and on for years. I also get tension headaches. The first time I laid on this matter I loved it! I laid on it for about fifteen minutes and my headache was gone. It says to start off laying on something soft. But I dived right in and laid on the floor with it. It wasn't painful or uncomfortable at all. There are little loops on the mat and decided to sew buttons on the opposite side so I could fold it up. That worked out great.
Love this mat so much, I've purchased multiple sets for friends and family members!
I purchased this because I've had chronic back pain for 15+ years. After numerous surgeries, injections in my spine, back, pain meds etc. I've finally had enough of medical doctors and decided to go a more homeopathic route. If you have a low pain threshold it will take some getting used to. The first time I used this mat I had on a thin cotton shirt and the disc w/spikes took about 10-15 mins to adjust to, once I relaxed my back felt much better. I even got both my daughters (ages 11 and 13 to try it) the younger one fell asleep within minutes. I think it is well worth the cost.
I think this is amazing. I'm not sure that it does much for pain, but it is super relaxing. I can see why people say they fall asleep on it.
have had lower back and hip pain for the last few years. This mat has been the best pain relief I've had. After using for two weeks, every other day, I feel my chronic pain is now manageable. It seems to bring blood to the area that you place on it. It gets hot and then after 20 minutes you feel better. I suggest not using the whole mat at first. For me I wear a t-shirt when I want to target my hip. I liked it so much I sent one to two of my relatives who have similar problems. The sharp points can be a little scary but stick with it.
I write very few reviews. Only when a product is exceptional do I bother. I was suffering from sudden, unexplained low back pain. I have two babies and my functionality was nil. I could not sleep at night between feedings because of the pain. I am not into holistic health all that much but based on other reviews and desperation, I ordered the mat and neck roll set. All I can say is phenomenal. For temporary pain relief, stress relief, and sleeplessness, nothing I tried beat this crazy product. Especially for breastfeeding mom's who can't alleviate pain with medicines, this mat rocks. I went straight in with no shirt for about 5 minutes and worked my way up to 20 minutes each night before bed. One of the best purchases I have made.
My favorite thing ever!!! I suffer from migraines and tension headaches which cause tightness in my neck/shoulder muscles. This acupressure pillow is PERFECT for relieving that tightness/pain. I have fallen asleep on it on multiple occasions because it brings me such relief. The mat is awesome too, but I get much more use out of the pillow. Highly recommend!
This product is really great. The first time I used it, I felt lighter and relaxed. Each time I use it now I feel so relaxed and stress free. If my back is tight, it alleviates the pressure. The feeling is hard to describe as it is prickly and you can feel the circulation, but it is a nice feeling.
I was a little doubtful but because of the reviews I got it. No regretting this purchase. This is amazing. It hurt a little at the beginning but then is just a pain taker
AMAZING for stress and pain relief! I look forward to helping relief my pain (fibromyalgia, migraines, high stress) and improve my functioning further with the help of this. Even my totally skeptical partner loves it, and wants a set of his own. If you, or a loved one, has regular pain or high stress, especially chronic, this is a great natual weapon in that battle! It's well made, no noxious odor, and has clear written instructions. Also, my massage therapist is impressed! Don't buy another brand of this. Do yourself a favor and BUY SUKI!
Happy to recommend this to just about anyone. I get terrible headaches, usually 5 days a week and I swear to the utmost that I lie down on this pillow (mat too) and my headache us gone after about 10 minutes! No joke. I don't find this mat as unbearable or painful as some report but everyone is different. My husband uses it at night for his back pain and he's also amazed at how well it helps.
One of the best purchases I ever made to relieve my gastro symptoms. Get ready to fart like a Queen
Long haired people: put your hair up if using the neck pillow, or use a hand towel over the pillow as your long hair will get caught in it. other than that, it works great, I use it weekly at least. Takes away aches in my back, de-stresses me. If you can work up the courage to stand on it, I highly recommend it! Start out with socks on first though, don't just go all in to begin with.
Summary: I purchased this mat to relieve back pain from computer work. The bristles looked intimidating at first and I did not like the jnitial sensation. But after 5 minutes the prickles slowly dissapear and a good stimulating effect happens. I have used this for 3 years and every time I use it I fall asleep on the mat. I'd say it works good. The mat works better than the pillow. It appears the bristles need pressure for them to work properly. Pros: 1) Good quality mat. 2) Effective. 3) Mat is more effective than pillow. Cons: 1) Can be shocking to use at first.
I never wrote a review, but boy when this thing just got to me 10 minutes ago, I swear the pressure that was mounting on my back and my neck with all the ongoing stress this mat almost sucked all of that pressure in a matter of 5 minutes, I could start breathing fully once again! my back and my neck started breathing back again!! much better than a massage I can't believe this!! I am WOW'ed, give it a shot it is not a joke when they say it could the life-changing product, worth every penny.
I literally couldn't sleep because of severe back pain that kept me up throughout the night. This device has done something to my back and put me in a total state of relaxation! It feels so good to be able to sleep!
Happy with this product. The spikes are nice and hard. The padding is just a thin piece of foam. So I wish the padding was a little thicker. Otherwise it feels amazing. Like the pillow and mat set.
Most of the reviews for this cover the basics, but I thought I would put in a few details. First of all, I am a very overweight individual (300+ lbs), so I was skeptical of it working due to the size and my weight, but that seems to have little change. This thing is incredible. It does take time to get used to the fact that you are lying on thousands of little plastic spikes designed specifically to stick into your back, so give it time. One thing I experienced, that I'm not sure is common, but several times I have fallen asleep on the mat. This poses a little difficulty, as I've found upon waking up and moving that my whole back feels as if I've gotten a massive sunburn for five to ten minutes after getting up. I'm curious to see if anyone else has experienced this. Now I just set a timer before I use it, to be safe.
It takes a minute to get used to. It’s best to start in a chair and progress to the floor. I suffer with a lot of neck and shoulder pain and it seemed to help a lot with that. But one day I had a severe migraine. Nothing I took helped to alleviate the pain. So I pulled out this mat and looked at the directions and it recommended standing on it if you had a headache. I’m not gonna lie, standing on that mat was difficult, boy did that hurt. So I would stand like a minute or two and then step off and then step back on. I did that for about 10 or 15 minutes and then I realized that the migraine was completely gone! So now this is my go to device when I have a migraine. I have a pretty high tolerance for pain so for me this mat is kind of like a hurts so good kind of thing. I can’t say that it helped for sleeping all night but I CAN say that it relaxed me enough to fall asleep immediately.
I am a 64 year old lady with moderate RA and sciatica. The only approach to managing my pain is holistic. The acupressure mat and neck roll gives almost instant pain relief to the point I have to be careful not to fall asleep. If it’s pain management or just relaxation after a long day I highly recommend this product.
I purchased this item last week after seeing an advertisement on it. Figured why not. Couldn’t hurt and it has good reviews. I’ve used it while laying in bed, on the floor, and couch. I have to admit it feels really good. Not sure if it’s helping with my back and neck pain but I’ve only used it for a week. Hopefully it will work to reduce some pain. Not expecting miracles of being pain free. I would recommend this product. It’s decent price. Again, it feels good laying on it. Even the husband agrees when he tried it out.
Holy Crapoly! I ordered this based on the fact that it had so many good reviews and while I had high hopes for it, it far exceeded my expectations! I've been using it daily for about 3 weeks now and my chronic pain/discomfort that I've dealt with for more then 20 years has subsided to the point where I couldn't even tell you when the last time I remember feeling discomfort... and yes my sleep has improved too...its the craziest thing...anyway for the price, I highly recommend you give it a whirl if you have chronic back, neck or even hip issues...
Totally works. I can lie down on it for a good 45 min. I have severe sciatica and I get relief from using this. Neck roll does hurt a bit but I've slowly gotten used to it
Well, it’s NOT comfortable, at all, but it’s not about comfort it’s about pressure points. Takes a while to get use to. I find no use in the pillow that comes with it. I prefer to stand on it and get pressure points activated rather than laying on it. If you can make it past 10 min you will feel the effects. But man....it’s hardcore to get use to.
I’m a skeptic. We actually got this for my husband as he has back, nerve, leg issues. I’ve had two children and two epidurals. The upper back was a regular epidural and it aches and prevents me from popping the vertebrae there. The second is my lower back and was a spinal that I really believe they messed up, bad. It hurts constantly and I can’t bend my back barely at all. It affects tons of things like tying shoes, putting on clothing, wiping during the restroom. This thing is amazing. The first time I used it I stayed on it 30 minutes on the floor. I kid you not I fell asleep. It was so relaxing. I laid in bed and rotated my back and EVERY THING POPPED. It’s better than any experience I’ve ever had. It was pure heaven. I can’t believe it did that. When I’m lazy and I don’t use it I can tell as my back aches the next day and it’s harder to fall asleep and get comfortable in bed. Worth every penny I spent and thinking of getting a second so we can use it together instead of using it back to back after the kids go to sleep. I even lay with my head under the TV as your head stays stationary so I could watch tv upside down. Time goes by so quick. It does hurt initially and you may have trepidation every time before you lay down. But man the pain is so minor and fades to this delicious warm tingle. I crave it now. And the small amount of time on it to experience the results I have is worth anything. Will be telling everyone and their mother about this. Amazing results. Beyond impressed. Just wowed.
So I must admit, I'm one of those people that read the 1 star reviews first. Why? Who knows. However, based on mostly raving reviews and much back pain, I decided to give it a chance. I was already convinced I'd be with the 1 star peeps, either in tears because it hurt, or annoyed because it didn't do a thing for me. First try I put it on the bed and went without a t-shirt (based on reviews saying clothing hinders the results). It felt strange of course, but not painful. I decided to turn it up a notch and put it on the hardwood floor. Oh boy! And here's where I shocked myself...it didn't hurt! It felt weird of course, but in a good way! Long story short, this is my go to after hours of gardening. I've probably only stayed on for 15 minutes tops (only out of time constraints with other things to do), but the feeling it gives me can be summed up to...it turns my back into soft butter! Seriously, lately my back has been in knots during the day at work because of stress. I lay on the mat and HELLO butter. I love this mat and I'm so glad I didn't end up in the 1 stars. :)
Very good product, it really helps my back pain. I using it every day.
Everyone's positive reviews are totally accurate. One thing I did hear in the reviews was how it aids in mobility. I've been suffering for months with a tight and cramped back. I was unable to touch my toe let a lone palm the floor. After a few sessions I can once again fold myself in half and hug my legs.
This mat is AMAZING. I have had awful back and neck pain for the past few months, but I did not want to shell out the money to see a chiropractor of masseuse unless I absolutely had to. I ran across this item and saw all the great reviews. I figured it was worth a shot! However, I HATE needles, so I was both excited and nervous to try it out. All I can say now is WOW! I have only used this product for about a week at this point, and I am currently lying on the mat on my bare skin on top of my mattress. I can lie down for 20 minutes, and once that time it up, I do not even want to get off the mat. The spikes hurt upon initial contact, but shortly thereafter, you begin to feel a very warm and soothing feeling as your blood rushes to the surface. The feeling is very cozy and alleviating! Once I get up, my pain is gone, and I am able to function appropriately. Now, I recommend this product to everyone I know who suffers from knots and back.neck pain!
this thing is life changing! i was hesitant at first but OMG it's so relaxing. i could lay on it all day! i prefer the mat to the pillow, but i usually use both.
Ok y’all - here you go: I’ve been using this mat for about a week (I missed a day) and I have to say I’ve been raving about it. Let me break it down for you: 1. My over-the-top headaches have been less frequent. Jabout 9 years ago I was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation and deal with ongoing headaches. Regularly they will become full on migraines - I’m on a daily med but I’ve still had to resort to OTCs. NOT THIS WEEK PEOPLE! I took 2 (count them 2) Excedrin migraines all week. 2. My flexibility has increased dramatically. Another fun part of the Chiari is back problems - but this bad boy seems to be helping. I don’t know how but it’s magic. 3. You lay on this mat for 5 minutes and your body goes all warm. Supposedly it’s because the blood flow is increasing. I say it’s magic. 4. My energy levels have increased and I feel so much calmer during the day. Again, magic. Now for the cons - 1. My back issues haven’t totally gone away but I have a chronic disorder and it’s only been a week so I can’t expect unicorns to jump out of the spikey things. I’ll keep at it. 2. I’m a little bummed it didn’t help with sleep so far like some other reviewers said. Ah well. 5/5 stars AND I’ve told pretty much everyone I know about this thing. It’s a solid win for me and for anyone that is dealing with neck, back or headache issues.
In all honesty this thing is a lifesaver when ever your back or neck pain is acting up. Every time at night or day when I’m in a lot of pain I just lay on this for about 30 mins watching a show and I don’t feel any pain for that time. After you get off your skin kind of feels as if it has icy hot on it, it’s a little painful but not too bad. This won’t fix your problem but it will fix it when your on it, and that’s exactly what I needed it for (:
I am loving my mat but still easing into the discomfort. I found that having it around my neck is still really too much stimulation! Ha but I am sure it will get easier with time.
This wasn't a pleasant experience... OUCH
Just hurts a lot..
I ve had my mat a week, I haven't really noticed any overall change. A bit early to leave a review
I love the feeling when finishing, my back is at a total state of relaxation. However I feel it doesn't have any permanent benefits. Maybe that's just how I feel now after 2 weeks of using
Its the best feeling to lay on the mat, in bed, after a warm shower just before falling asleep.........utter bliss.
Brilliant service. My first try went better than I expected (thought it was going to be very painful initially but it wasn’t). It feels so great now and helps calm my body and put it into a relaxed state. 100% would recommend to others.
Using my Suki Mat is part of my bedtime routine every evening. 10 minutes on the mat at night and I can’t stop falling asleep. It’s is so relaxing and calming, I don’t want to miss it anymore. Don’t forget to wake up and remove the mat before you turn around, otherwise it might get painful...
i can only say I'm glad I found the Suki
There's nothing I can really fault with the Suki mat. It's everything that is advertised. Spikey, puts hundreds of dots onto your skin and turns you red. I can't say that I've found the feeling blissful but it's not a bad feeling. Feels like deep heat on an intense level. I've had such good sleeps since using the mat and all I can say to people who are skeptical: just try it, and if you don't like it I can guarantee at least one person you know will gladly take it from you.
We were a bit skeptical but had it recommended by a friend. And wow what a recommendation - for the deepest most relaxed sleep ever, and for having your feet fully unwound, there is nothing better. Suki is awesome!
I've only had my Suki mat for a little over one week but am really enjoying it. I use it for my back, then neck and shoulders. It is an 'interesting' feeling for the first minute or so but then becomes relaxing. When I've finished I definitely feel a really relaxed sensation. Would recommend
Lets be simple about this - i love it :-)
Takes some getting used to at first, but golly sure does work. I am thrilled!
I love my mat. I use it for 15-20 mins in the evening on my back and sleep like a dream. The feeling of warmth and relaxation is wonderful. I also use it every morning to stand on for 10 minutes. I find this painful! But notice the impact on my feet for the rest of the day - they just have more feeling. I would highly recommend this mat.
I love the Suki Mat it helps me sleep a lot better now a friend told me about it. It took me a few days to get used to it without a shirt on but no Pain no Gain. The customer service is great.
Slightly painful but worth it
Purchased the Suki Mat and pillow. Swift delivery and couldn’t wait to use it. Initially it was quite painful, but now I can’t wait to get home and use it. It’s an addictive part of my day now. The benefits are amazing. Very happy.
Very impressed. Thought it was going to be more painful first off..
I purchased this out of desperation. I've had sleep issues for years now, but am too stubborn to see a doctor and just never wanted to end up hooked on a sleep aid. I practically lived off melatonin but it's started to not work anymore and I needed something else. This seemed harmless, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I use it before bed, for 20-40 minutes. I usually read a book to pass the time. I was skeptical that this would work for me - it sounded weird, and I figured I would try it for a week or two and that it wouldn't work and I'd end up throwing it away. Now I use it every night, and theres no lasting grogginess that always seemed to come with melatonin or zzquil. Just normal happy sleep. It also helps with muscle tension which is a huge plus. I'd guess this mat works differently for everyone, but it's been amazing beneficial for me.
Has done wonders for my back and overall relaxation state at the end of a long day. Hurt a bit until I got used to it but totally worth the adjustment. Helps clear a cluttered mind.
Okay, I will admit it is intimidating looking, and if used carelessly it can hurt, BUT every single person who has tried this (essentially everyone who has been to my house since I bought it) always loves it. Sure, they say ouch at first, but try taking it away from them. This set is SO relaxing. Great for pain relief, and I've also had success using it for digestive issues as well. If you're into holistic or alternative medicine at all then this set is absolutely indispensable. The only people I wouldn't recommend it to is anyone on blood thinners - it is HIGHLY unlikely this will cause you to bleed but erring on the side of caution, since, you know, blood thinners.
So I bought this for anxiety and stress relief. I love it! Laying straight on my back is often something that helps when I feel my stress getting too high. I've been looking at trying this mat for awhile and so I jumped on it. In just one use I already feel some anxiety relief (and more than just laying on the ground). The sensory input of the points really helps! Obviously, be smart. Your first use should not be bare back jumping down on the thing. I started with a tshirt and felt the pillow on my bare neck and then quickly took off my shirt as I had a camisole on. I then focused on my breathing and relaxed. Start with a tshirt, then lighter shirt, then bare skin. If you're one that likes weighted blankets than this is another sensory input that you might like and even at the full price is worth it! As we all know anxiety medication only goes so far and often it's our lifestyle and coping skills that make the biggest impact!
I've had lower back pain off and on for years. I also get tension headaches. The first time I laid on this matter I loved it! I laid on it for about fifteen minutes and my headache was gone. It says to start off laying on something soft. But I dived right in and laid on the floor with it. It wasn't painful or uncomfortable at all.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!! Whenever I can’t sleep I put this on my back and listen to a meditation. It puts me right to sleep! It hurts at first but then you get used to it. My body even craves it! I love the pillow it comes with. I use that I’d my neck is ever sore.
I have fibromyalgia and have spent hundreds of dollars on various pain remedies throughout the years. Most things haven't really helped, including physical therapy -- the only thing that would provide relief was Tylenol and scalding hot showers. This mat appears to be invented by a sadist and it definitely HURTS, but with regular use my pain has become much, much better. It also helps relieve pain when it happens, but I've found it to be more useful in reducing pain generally rather than addressing a particular pain spot. My best evidence of its effectiveness is that I get extremely thirsty after massages and the same thing happens when I lie on the mat for 20-40 minutes. I don't know what the thirst means (a quick Google says something about the lymphatic system?) but I take it as a sign that this mat actually does something for my knotted-up muscles. I love the mat so much that I made the following meme. I hope it helps in your decision on whether to purchase this.
