Lotus Healing Mat Review

Shakti Mat TM - The Original (Green)

Bring Bliss to Your Holidays with the Lotus Healing Mat Ease pain, stress and muscle tension this season with proven Tibetan pressure technique 
PROVO, Utah – November 18, 2010 – When you think about the upcoming holidays, do the words stress and pressure come to mind? Get through the season with just a little less anxiety and a few more moments of calm and peace with the Lotus Healing Mat. This innovative breakthrough in holistic healing promotes wellness and relaxation by targeting key pressure points across the back to improve blood flow and circulation.
According to research from the American Psychological Association, three-fourths of American adults report moderate to high levels of stress, and this number rises during the holiday season. Additionally, the annual Holiday Slumber Index by found that one in six Americans will lose sleep due to holiday-induced stress. 
Throughout the holidays and all year long people all over the world are using the Lotus HealingMat to aid both physical and emotional balance. Using the methods of acupressure, the ancient Chinese technique for applying pressure to specific points on the body, the mat’s 6,000 therapeutic points stimulate the nerve endings encouraging the release of endorphins, the body’s natural anti-stress and anti-pain hormone. 
Acupressure has been used for centuries to induce relaxation and manage low energy, insomnia and high stress, as well as to bring relief to those suffering from muscular tension, migraines, digestive problems and depression. While ideal for reenergizing and revitalizing, the LotusHealing Mat can also help to promote the body’s natural healing process by boosting the immune system, increasing metabolism and decreasing inflammation. 
Each mat is covered with specifically-placed spiked disks resembling the lotus flower, which is said to signify a perfect state of mental health. Hundreds of these disks along the mat create thousands of contact points that quickly improve blood and energy flow to cultivate a sense of complete tranquility. The Lotus Healing Mat’s design principle promotes a positive state of well being by encouraging calmness, healing and relaxation throughout the body and mind.
The Lotus Healing Mat, available in five different colors, is a compact, flexible, and high-quality self-nurturing mat that can be used by anyone at any time or place. It takes only moments to feel energy flow and begin a journey to total relaxation and rejuvenation. The mat is made of environmentally friendly materials, making it absolutely safe and allergy free. The Lotus HealingMat is the perfect holiday gift to bring the body into balance, awaken the senses and foster inner stillness.

I know the description is a little outdated (since it’s no longer the holidays), but I think it applies to any time of the year. We’re always experiencing stress from busyness with children. Stresses in my life right now are birthday parties and preparing for my husband to be away for 2 weeks. Then there are the sports that my son is already involved in, and that won’t get any easier with spring soccer and summer t-ball coming up. And let’s not forget about the early summer vacation with my family. Whew, that’s a lot to think about. But we all know what it’s like to have so much going on and a lot of stress.

The Lotus Healing Mat is made to take the stress out. The little prickly disks are like acupuncture. They help do all the things acupuncture promises- relaxation and rejuvenation. I found that my hardest thing to do was to find quiet time to actually use this mat. It’s nice, it’s well-made, I love the idea. But I rarely have quiet moments in my home when I can relax. I do like the quality of the mat. It had a thick cloth pad over a thick foam mat. And the whole thing can be rolled up and tied. Along with the headrest, it all can be rolled up together and won’t take up much room that way. It would be easy to store under a bed. So if you’re looking for something to help you in your relaxation time, the Lotus Healing Mat is the right product for you.
