CAN KIDS USE THE ALIGNMAT?

Kids can use the AlignMat to help relax and sleep better. We suggest they wear shirts or socks the first time until used to the feeling.

  • Place them in the water and lightly clean.
  • Hang out to dry naturally (do not put in dryer).
  • Once dry, put the foam base back in the sleeve. Don’t touch the points! Avoid by rolling the foam to get the bottom of your mat cover over the top.
  • Fold the foam in half and grab the corners of the mat. Shake gently until it is back in the mat material and close velcro strips at the top. 
  • Wash at least once a month if using regularly. 
  • Daily or weekly cleaning can lead to damage.

For a light clean, use a brand new toothbrush and gently rub against the pressure points. Don't use too much force to avoid damage to pressure points. 

 

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE MY ALIGNMAT?

Your AlignMat can take a little time to get used to. The lotus-shaped pressure points may cause some discomfort at first. This should only last only a few minutes. After that, the body starts to enter a relaxed, warm state. 

If you have sensitive skin, we suggest wearing a shirt the first few times you use your AlignMat.

Try 10 minutes on the AlignMat to start. As you become more used to the mat and pillow you can spend hours on it! You can even fall asleep on your AlignMat.

 

CAN I USE MY ALIGNMAT ON MY BED? 

You can use your AlignMat on any semi-flat comfortable surface, such as your bed. When starting, we suggest you use a softer texture like your bed. Your bedroom floor, car seat or office chair all work wonders for your neck and back pain.

 

BONUS TIPS: 

Getting the full benefits of the acupressure mats will depend on the body part you want to use it for, and how often you use it. 

For this reason, we have all the facts you need to know about acupressure mat use for a variety of body parts. 

The list below will guide you through your journey and bring you great results. 

 

Chest and Abdomen

This pose should be part of your daily routine. Chest pain relief will make your day, and life even better! Opposite to the back position, switch sides right after lying on your back on the acupressure mat. 

The spikes should be in contact with the whole area of your chest and abdomen. You will enjoy a quick relief on the muscles and the inner organs will have more space. This makes inhaling, exhaling and food digestion easier and more relaxed. 

This can be useful if you have any stomach pains (such as acid reflux) - it never hurts to try! A brief period of rest on your chest and abdomen on the acupressure mat will put you in ease and make most of your stress go away.

Hamstrings

Hamstrings are the largest muscle complex in the body and assist with keeping the body erect. Taking care of these muscles using your acupressure mat is easy to do. Just sit legs flat on your mat for great results. You can also include your buttocks, lower back and even your hips and thighs for maximum benefit from this practice. Either lay flat with the mat directly under your buttocks and hamstrings, or just sit with your legs stretched. This will help with pain and numb legs by improving blood circulation. It also has great effects with pain reducing on sciatic nerve pains.

Quadriceps

The other support muscle for body posture is the quadriceps, located in your front thighs. This large muscle takes a huge load of body support. It gets stressed a lot during day activity, or even after a few squats and leg extensions. 

The best option is to help these muscles recover after a leg workout is to use your acupressure mat. Lay flat facing the floor against your mat laid down. The spikes will work their magic around this area and release any hips, thighs or quadriceps pain. This helps with the recovery and gives you great results with time. Grab your acupressure mat, lay it abeam your thighs and enjoy a thigh massage in the most natural way told by Guru masters.
