I have had a bad back for a number of years and although there may be many different causes, some of it is probably genetic since my mother has suffered from back problems ever since I can remember. The weight and strain of pregnancy is definitely taking its toll on me as well! Regardless of whether you have back ailments, the Lotus Healing Mat uses pressure points to also help reduce stress, increase energy, blood flow and metabolism. Although I am pregnant and can’t lay flat for long periods of time to get a true sense of the potential of this product, it was relaxing when I tried it and I am looking forward to really putting it to the test postpartum. I will probably also have my mom give it a whirl when she is in town for a couple weeks in January to see if she notices any improvements in her back, pain or energy.
My mother has seen great success with shiatsu and acupuncture over the years, so I believe that the accupressure this mat provides has the potential to help provide a non-medicinal alternative towards energy and health. I am excited to see if the mat helps me feel a little extra energy after my little one arrives and the increased metabolism it advertises will also be welcome to get these preggo pounds off! The mats and pillows are available in five different colors and have tie strings and a handle for easy storage.

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 SleepBetter.org 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 Healing Mat 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 Lotus Healing 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 pointsthat quickly improve blood and energy flowtocultivate 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.
