How are your acupressure mats made?
Our acupressure mats are unparalleled in quality and are 100% eco-friendly. Each mat is carefully handmade using the highest-quality, hypoallergenic natural linen. Each mat also contains a removable cushion made of 100% natural coconut fibre.
Our mats also feature more than 4,500 high-quality acupressure points in the beautiful shape of lotus flowers. These unique acupressure points are made of toxic-free surgical plastic and have been ergonomically engineered to have the greatest relaxation and healing effects.
Many other manufacturers (including many selling on Amazon) sell acupressure mats at relatively low prices. Please beware of these manufacturers! In most cases these acupressure mats have been mass produced and are held together using toxic glue. In addition, the foam pads and acupressure points are made of synthetic materials which contain harsh chemicals and have a strong chemical odour. Using these cheaper mats may result in skin infection, allergic reactions and other health ailments, in addition to greater environmental harm. Many of our customers came to us and bought one of our acupressure mats after having a bad experience with one of these manufactures.

How does acupressure compare to acupuncture?
Acupressure is similar to acupuncture in that they both focus on the same meridians. The key difference between the two treatments is that acupuncture employs the use of needles while acupressure uses pressure and does not pierce the skin. Our mats also provide healing benefits to a much greater surface area of your body.
