The original Swedish Acupressure Spike Mats can be used however you see fit and for all sorts of ailments. The Flex shown here has 100% soft spikes. Looking for something harder? Try the Classic (100% hard), or the Combi (50% soft spikes, 50% hard spikes). All mats come in two pieces which link together, so you can mix and match.
The Spike Mats can be used for the following ailments and benefits:
- Muscular aches or tension
- Stiffness in the upper body
- DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) from weight-lifting or exercise
- Treating muscular pain
- Increasing blood flow
- Receiving headaches
- Releasing oxytocin – the body’s ‘happy pill’
- Releasing endorphins – hormones which provide the body’s natural pain relief
- Relaxing and meditation
How to use
We suggest building up use of the Spike Mat so your body becomes accustomed to it. Remember, the spikes are designed to be sharp and dig into your muscles, but cannot harm you. Try starting with sessions lasting around 5 minutes, and if necessary, support your head with a pillow or cushion. If you like, try placing a towel under the mat to soften the pressure of the ‘nails’ and experiment until you find the right level of pressure. You can also start by wearing shirt until you get used to it.
Once you have become used to the feeling and want to enjoy a longer session of use, use your Spike Mat for 20-40 minutes at a time, several times a week. You can use the acupressure mat every day if desired. It should feel “nicely painful” to achieve its effect to start with, similar to a deep-tissue massage which loosens you up, and ‘warming’ after that.
In any doubt, please check use with your healthcare professional to see if Spikemats are suitable for you. Read the instructions, general medical advice and user guide here:
