It seems that in today’s society, more and more people suffer from pain. I would venture to say that at least 4 out of 5 people suffer from a pain of some sort in the neck area, shoulders, or back. The reason? There are many contributing factors of pain, which are too numerous to mention in this review. Suffice it to say that we often over-do it when taking on some task or another, without thinking of the consequences. More times than not, those consequences result in some type of pain in our body. I never believed that stress, or a stress related activity could cause such tremendous pain, but have adjusted my attitude lately about this form of pain. Well, now you can relieve many forms of pain with a product called the Heavenly Acupressure Mat without the expensive medical costs or drugs, and in the comfort of your own home.

I am sure that you have heard of acupuncture before. This is where little needles are inserted into your skin at critical points on your body to relieve the pain. Well, acupressure, an ancient form of Chinese healing therapy, is similar in concept, but without the invasive procedure of inserting anything in your skin. This therapy has been around for over 5,000 years. The premise of acupressure is that your body is full of a life force called “Chi”, which flows through your body, and when your “Chi” becomes blocked or restricted you can become ill, tired, stressed, or unhappy. Your “Chi” can be restored, however, by applying pressure to certain points of the body, by using the Heavenly Acupressure Mat, thus promoting health and well-being throughout your entire body.
The Heavenly Acupressure Mat uses the Sankofa symbol from Ghana, West Africa, which means REVERSION and translates into “a return to or towards an earlier condition, practice, or belief”. The Heavenly Acupressure Mat can help you to reclaim your health to what it once was. Treat yourself to 20 minutes on the Heavenly Acupressure Mat every day for a positive reversion.
Many people who suffer from ailments such as Back & Neck Pain, Stress, Anxiety, Insomnia, Poor Blood Circulation, Muscle Tension, Headaches & Migraines, and even excess weight can use this Heavenly Acupressure Mat to help relieve the pain and restore balance to your body.
How does it work, you ask? Acupressure mats stimulate your skin, which in turn triggers the production of endorphins and oxytocin – your body’s own natural pain-relieving and feel-good hormones. Without the use of harmful drugs, these hormones are released, thus relieving any pain or stress. While I cannot guarantee that you will feel 100% relief immediately, with continued use of the mat, you will begin to feel better with each session.
The most common reasons for using an acupressure mat are: Pain Relief, Stress Relief, Increased Energy Levels, Relaxation and Better Sleep. With regular use, you can also reduce inflammation, and lose weight.
In a research study on the benefits of acupressure mats by Dr. Zilberter in Hillsborough, North Carolina, the following results were reported by the participants:
- 98% reported pain relief,
- 96% reported relaxation,
- 94% reported improved sleep,
- 81% reported an increase in energy levels.
The Heavenly Acupressure Mat size is 29 x 17 inches, with 8820 points, and the coordinating pillow is 12 x 9 x 2-3 inches, with 1638 points.
The Acupressure Mats are available in several colors: green, blue, black or gold. The Heavenly Acupressure pillows come in either: black, blue or green.
The Company cautions individuals who are pregnant, have a blood disorder or are using anticoagulants, suffer from epilepsy, or have a skin disorder, sun burn, or open wound NOT to use this product without the recommendation from your family doctor. Also, it is NOT recommended for children under the age of 6, and supervision by an adult is recommended for all children under the age of 10 who use the mat.
There are several basic acupressure mat positions:
Lie flat on your back with your legs extended. For more pressure on your lower back, bend your knees with feet flat on the bed/floor. This is the position that I used my mat. I placed the mat on my bed upon retiring for the night. Actually, I fell asleep on the mat, and when I awoke, I removed the mat. Using the mat in this position also helped relieve my back pain. I actually felt refreshed after my session on the mat.
Lie on your stomach with your arms under your head or alongside your body. Breathe slowly and deeply.
Neck and Shoulders
For maximum contact with acupressure points, roll-up a towel and place it under your neck and the acupressure mat, or you can order the optional pillow. While I did not have any difficulty with using the mat from the very beginning, I did feel some discomfort using the pillow until I placed a cloth over the pillow. I needed to use the cloth over the pillow for several days, but my body has adjusted where I no longer need the cloth now.
Check out all the benefits of using the Heavenly Acupressure Mat on the Company’s website. Following your session on your Heavenly Acupressure Mat¸ you will want to drink some water to help your body remove the toxins that were released during the session.
Once you become acclimated to the acupressure mat, you can then introduce the mat to your other body parts such as your hips and thighs, lower back and face. See the basic positions section for instruction on using the mat to target your whole body.
The Acupressure Mat is easy to maintain and clean. Since it is manufactured with high quality materials and includes a 100% natural cotton cloth exterior, non-toxic ABS plastic acupressure points, and foam rubber cushioning, you can simply remove the foam pad and hand wash the mat with warm water using a soft brush. Hang the mat to dry – do not put in the washing machine or dryer as it may damage the points on the mat, and do not dry clean it. The Company recommends while you are not using your mat that you hang it on your wall or store it in a dry place out of the reach of children.

I must say that using the Heavenly Acupressure Mat helped to relieve the stress of my day and my back pain. I love the convenience that this mat offers, as well, as you can use it on any surface that is flat: floor, bed, or even on your sofa. I used mine while in bed watching television late at night. I do believe it also helped me to sleep more sound. I would definitely recommend that you get one of the Heavenly Acupressure Mat and save yourself that pain in the neck and back.
