Heavenly Acupressure Mat - Orange
The Acupressure Mat that became so popular it was named “Holiday Present of the Year” in Sweden in 2009 made it across the Atlantic to soothe and relieve tension for stressed Americans. This may be the most appreciated Holiday present you could give someone this year.
The Heavenly Acupressure Mat uses the principles of acupressure to help relieve stress, anxiety, insomnia, and chronic back or neck pain, while at the same time increasing relaxation and an overall sense of well-being. And because no drugs are involved, the acupressure mats may be used safely by people of all ages to address a broad spectrum of physical and emotional complaints.
“Our mats deliver a daily ‘dose’ of wellness without drugs,” reports Benjamin Buadu, President of the Heavenly Acupressure Mat Company. “That makes them a perfect Christmas gift to give to others, or to yourself.” See more detailed results of clinical trials below.*
Each foam-filled, cushioned, Heavenly Acupressure Mat is covered with small, plastic disks with protruding points, in fact each mat has a total of 8820 contact points that, like hands-on acupressure, trigger the release of endorphins and oxytocin within the body. The acupressure mat works by applying non-penetrative acupressure on numerous points over a large area of the body, stimulating the release of endorphins and oxytocin, the body’s natural pain-relieving and ‘feel good’ hormones.
“The Heavenly Acupressure Mat triggers the same ‘feel-good’ hormones that are released during exercise, when we are touched, or experience excitement and infatuation,” says Buadu. You simply lie on the mat on the area of the body affected. “The beneficial effects of the Heavenly Acupressure Mat will be felt from the very first use,” he says. Like acupressure itself, acceptance of acupressure mats is also becoming wide-spread, with their use sweeping across Scandinavia, Western Europe, America and Australia.
Background of Acupressure Mats:
Acupressure, often termed ‘needle-less acupuncture,’ has been an integral part of Eastern medicine for over 5,000 years. Today, acupressure is embraced and considered a valuable and effective complementary medical treatment by the even the most conventional institutions, such as the National Institutes of Health and the American Cancer Society in the U.S., the National Institute for Health Research in the U.K., and other well-respected Western medical institutions.
The basic premise of acupressure is that the human body is full of a life force or energy called “Chi.” If your Chi becomes restricted or blocked, you can become tired, stressed, ill or unhappy. Acupressure mats, the latest and most contemporary take on this time-honored health aid, stimulate the flow of Chi promoting health and a feeling of well-being.
For a fraction of the price of a single acupressure session or massage, you can enjoy the benefits of Acupressure in the comfort of your own home every day. For those facing stress in their lives this may be the most appreciated Holiday present of the year! See Insiders Health Editor’s review for an in-depth, personal review of this product.

According to a 1996 – 1997 study by the Community Holistic Health Center in Carrboro, NC, of the 126 subjects who completed the study, one or more positive effects were reported by 99 of the 105 participants with specific health problems, and by 13 of the 21 participants with no specific health problems. 103 of the total 126 participants experienced positive effects. 98% reported pain relief; 96% reported relaxation; 94% reported improvement of sleep quality; and 81% reported an increase in energy level. Five previous Russian studies from the 1980s found more dramatic health effects including reduction of inflammation, slowing of tumor growth, and other serious benefits, although the American study focused only on pain- and stress-relief, sleep and energy levels.
According to Dr. Tanya Zilberter, neurophysiologist, “the researchers have suggested that, since this type of skin stimulation has been repeatedly shown to elicit reflexes causing release of Endorphins into the blood stream, most of the reported results can be explained by the mobilization of this particular type of endogenous stress- and pain protective mechanism.”
