Acupressure Comfort Mat; Helping with Discomfort During Menstrual Cramps

Acupressure Mats Help with the Discomfort Of Menstrual Cramps

      Have you ever thought about using an Acupressure Mat and Pillow Set to help alleviate menstrual cramps?  Well, the good news is that it’s natural, it’s safe, and super easy to use.  And only takes about 10-20 minutes a day to get you feeling like your old self again.  Many studies have shown that in lieu of taking hormonal medication or swallowing pills, one could use an acupressure mat with the pillow to help with the discomfort associated with period pain. It’s a great alternative to help ease common monthly symptoms of discomfort, irritability, dizziness, and cramping, just to name a few.

Research Studies     

A research study on acupressure done in Berlin, was published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.  Over two hundred women participated.  They wanted to better understand the benefits of using this original ancient technique to help alleviate symptoms of menstrual cramps.  After six months of acupressure treatments, it was found that over half the participants had reduced period pain.

    The best way to use the mat to get maximum results is to do the following:  Lie down on the floor and take the acupressure pillow and tuck it in the small of your back.  The pillow itself is semi-circle and contoured so it should fit snugly in the lumbar region of your back.  Stay in that position for a few minutes.  Remove the pillow and still lying down, place it under your knees.  Keep it there for a few minutes as well.  Then, if you can, try lying face down with the acupressure mat in your belly region. Again, stay there for a few minutes.  Remember not to overdo it your first time out.  You’ll want to work your way up gradually with time-of-use.


Those are just some of the benefits.  In addition to easing the pain and cramps associated with menstrual cycles, the use of an acupressure mat can also help with other types of muscle cramps and tension and can even help you sleep better.  Finding the right acupressure mat is not that hard but you’ll need to find the one that fits your body shape and of course keeping in mind a nice soothing color for the ultimate experience.
