The pranamat is a wonderful acupressure tool for self-healing, relaxation and revitilisation that restores the energy flow of your body. It is a combination of ancient wisdom, bio design and modern technologies.
Acupressure is an ancient healing art that has widely and successfully been used within many different cultures for thousands of years. It involves applying physical pressure to certain points on the body to improve circulation and promote a state of enhanced physical and mental health.
How does the pranamat work? Its design is based on the principles of acupressure and reflexology, and the pranamat works on the premise that the tiny lotus spikes stimulate active nerve centres and intensify the local blood flow and lymph circulation. This reflective action triggers the release of endorphins that are effective in blocking pain, producing analgesia and a sense of wellbeing. In particular, oxytocin, the hormone of love, peace and calmness, is released. This hormone is our “happy pill” and is naturally released during sex, breastfeeding and massage. When the level of oxytocin rises the level of stress hormones in the body falls.
Regular use of the pranamat helps you to relax and stimulate a quicker self-healing process of your body by:
~ increasing your energy levels
~ helping with depression and stress
~ acting as a powerful pain killer
~ easing muscle spasms, reducing muscle tension, and easing spinal problems
~ compensating for lack of physical activity (e.g. plane flights, prolonged travel by car, prolonged work at the computer, illnesses connected with immobility)
~ helping to improve metabolism and help to reduce fat and cellulite
Whilst there are a number of different acupressure mats on the market, I prefer the Advaita brand as it has superior eco-friendly design components compared to any other acupressure mat on the market :
~ 100% natural and eco-friendly linen, cotton and coconut fibre
~ No glue is used to attach the spikes (lotuses)
~ The dyes used in coloring fabrics for Pranamat do NOT contain AZO
~ No rubber foam used as a filler
~ Nature- and human-friendly
~ Non-allergic materials
Regular use of a pranamat can help to bring about a more happy, healthy and therefore naturally beautiful you.
