How ACUMAT Works?
The impact of ACUMAT is based on principals of reflexology and acupressure
technique. Firstly, the specially designed pointed lotus petals of ACUMAT
simultaneously affect biologically active points and meridians, as well as the area
of skin related to the organs and systems. Secondly, ACUMAT increases the
release of oxytocin and endorphins, which improve blood and lymph circulation,
relieve muscles spasms, reduce pain and have a positive effect on general
emotional state. Finally, ACUMAT stimulates the supply of noradrenalin into the
blood, which activates the sympathetic centers of the autonomic nervous system,
as well as pituitary, hypothalamus and adrenal cortex. This helps to speed up the
metabolism and strengthens the anti-inflammatory activity of the body.

How To Use Your ACUMAT?
IMPACT ZONES OF ACUMAT ARE:- BACK, SHOULDER,NECK,WRAIST,HIPS,FEET AND HANDS. The most common position is to lie on your back; as the influence on theback has a beneficial effect on the entire body.Put your ACUMAT on the bed or floor. Take off your shirt. Slowly and carefully lie on your back – do it gradually, leaning on the hands for support. Bend your knees, and while lifting the pelvis, move it forward and tightly press the lower back to the ACUMAT. You can leave the legs bent at the knees or straight them. Place a small pillow or a roller under your neck for your head not to throw back. If you feel discomfort in the back, stand up and lie down, taking the optional position. Mild pain at the beginning of the session on ACUMAT is completely normal. That pain will disappear with time. Cover yourself with a blanket for you to feel as comfortable as possible. You can turn on soft music, close your eyes, use breathing techniques, do anything that will help you to focus on feelings, let go of thoughts and allow your muscles and mind to relax. Distribute your weight evenly across the mat. The first time you lie on the ACUMAT you may want to use a light cloth or wear a thin shirt to soften the pressure of the lotuses. Begin slowly, without causing unnecessary discomfort to yourself. It may take several days or weeks before you can start using the mat without cover on it.
Frequency of Use
For treatment of acute pain and for a best results it is recommended to use ACUMAT 2 times a day during the first 3 weeks. Afterwards, use ACUMAT when you feel the need, or at least 3 times a week. Duration of treatment depends on you. Please note the one session takes from 10 to 45 minutes. It is safe to use ACUMAT longer. You can even lie on the mat for a few hours, but the desired effect is normally achieved in 20 minutes. The first 10-15 minutes on the mat will be a powerful stimulant, but after 20 minutes the relaxing qualities of ACUMAT are made clear. You can use the mat at any time, but do not use it after a heavy meal, when the body’s resources are mobilized in the abdominal area, making therapy less effective. The ideal time for the session is morning, the first few minutes after waking up, when the body and mind are still between sleep and wakefulness. ACUMAT will help you to wake up and start the day in good shape. For people who enjoy a midday rest, ACUMAT is an ideal way to relax and recuperate.It can be used in the evenings as well, but only when you are used to the mat and are more used to being relaxed by it instead of being awakened or stimulated by it. If you are at the start of your program, using the mat at night might make you too energetic to sleep.
Tips for better Use
