How Acupressure mat works

Acupressure mat works by applying non penetrative acupressure on numerous points over an area of the body. 

Pressure from the spines on the mat activates the body's own production of two substances: endorphins - "natural painkiller" hormone and oxytocin - "feel-good” hormone. 

Endorphins relieve the pain and give a sense of physical well-being, while oxytocin help relax and wind down.
Endorphins are among the brain chemicals known as neurotransmitters, which function to transmit electrical signals within the nervous system. 

Stress and pain are the two most common factors leading to the release of endorphins. However, when the body is out of balance due to chronic stress, it often experiences an endorphin deficit. Then it needs help to fight stress. 

During the Acupressure mat session the endorphins (hormones of happiness or "natural pain killers") are released. Endorphins are effective in blocking pain and producing analgesia and a sense of well-being. With high endorphin levels, we feel less pain and fewer negative effects of stress. 

When levels of oxytocin rise, the levels of stress hormones in the body fall. Damaged or worn tissues are repaired and new cells grow where they are needed. Our pain threshold is raised, blood pressure falls, worries and anxieties decrease, sexual desire increases and we optimize our body’s performance and durability instead of manipulating it. Our body returns into physiological balance and we feel relaxed.
