Don’t let the January blues get the better of you in 2010. Keep that de-stressed feeling longer with the Yantra acupressure mat from Lifes2good. Working on the principles of the ancient healing powers of acupressure, using the mat for just 20 minutes per day may help boost your overall health by raising energy levels, increasing metabolism, relieving stress, improving your night’s sleep, and easing aches and pains.
The Yantra Mat design consists of 210 spiked flowers with 8,820 acupressure contact points, which are calibrated to provide equal pressure at all points. You can use the Yantra Mat in a variety of ways to target specific parts of the body. Lying on your back on an even surface with your head or legs elevated by a pillow stimulates the acupressure points along with the spine and can soothe back problems. Lying on your stomach on the Yantra Mat can improve your metabolism and loosen tightness in the diaphragm and respiratory muscles. You can also rest the side of your face against the mat to relieve tightness in the neck and jaw or place the mat on a chair to loosen tension in the lumbar region and buttocks.
The Yantra Mat retails for €49.90 and is available from leading health stores, pharmacies, and sports stores nationwide including Elverys Sports, McCabe’s pharmacies, Sam McCauley chemists, Unicare pharmacies, The Health Store, and Hickey’s pharmacies or direct from Lifes2good on 1890 351010 or visit www.yantra.ie
