How long does it take for an acupressure mat to work?

Like most health and wellness tools, acupressure mats do not have a one size fits all regimen. Our bodies all react differently to treatments, and although there are guidelines to help you stay on track, the effectiveness of each treatment and how long it will take to show results for you personally is yet to be observed.

This means that even if you study your research thoroughly and do everything correctly, it all still boils down to your current state of health and how your body will process the experience.

Luckily enough, there are a few things that can help you better your chances at making an acupressure mat work faster for you. These include:

  1. Your reason for using one.
  2. How severe your situation is.
  3. How consistent you are.
  4. How accurate your angles are.

Your reason for using one

There are many reasons people opt to utilize an acupressure mat and they can be rather contrasting. Perhaps your motivation falls under any of the following:

As you can tell, some of these reasons are a bit heavier than others and would naturally take a little more time to take effect. Which brings us to the next factor.

How severe your situation is

Sometimes the severities of our insomnia, discomfort, anxiety, etc. are not very substantial. In these situations, you would most likely need less time on the acupressure mat compared to users experiencing more progressed indications. Here is a timetable guide that you may adjust as you see fit:

For mild situations, we recommend to start between 5 to 10 minutes per session.

For moderate situations, extend it between 15 to 20 minutes per session.

For severe situations, go for 30 minutes per session.

It is important to note that if you are focusing on more sensitive spots, or are still a beginner, keep your pace slow and listen to your body.

How consistent you are

If you have recurring symptoms, we highly recommend using the mat daily. In fact, if you prefer, you may use the mat multiple times in a day. Just be sure that each session is no longer than 30 minutes to ensure that the spikes will not leave impressions on your skin.

How accurate your angles are

Acupressure therapy uses different pressure areas to target certain points of your body. You must apply pressure on the right spots in order to treat specific ailments. This is what makes a mat so convenient. Because of its wide coverage and multiple points, it would be hard to miss your target.
