Hello! I hope you all had a good Tuesday. Mine was busy as usual. I've noticed over the past few weeks that when I'm stressed out and spread to thin my mantra has been "just keep swimming, just keep swimming". Yes that's from Finding Nemo. Hey whatever helps right? :)
So have any of you ever tried the Yantra Mat? It's an acupressure mat that has 8,820 plastic spikes on it. It's based on Chinese medicine and nail beds. Yikes! But it's supposed to help with stress, back & neck pain, fatigue, headaches, and muscle tension.
In minutes, you’ll feel warmth along the parts of your body touching the mat – that’s an increase in blood flow, a natural response to acupressure. Improved circulation means lower blood pressure and better nutrient delivery.
Additionally, the Yantra Mat’s 8,820 acupressure points provoke the kind of clarity and focus that usually comes with prolonged meditation or intense physical activity. A more relaxed state further improves circulation.
Not surprisingly, people fall asleep on the Yantra Mat all the time."
"Acupressure may even induce the release of endorphins and oxytocin, the body’s own pain-relieving and happiness hormones. And there is some evidence that it increases metabolism as well."
Have a good night ya'll!
