I discovered a new website today called, tanga.com. It’s pretty useful. They have sales ranging in all different categories for men, women, and children containing just about anything you can think of. Featured today in their Health and Beauty section for only $17.99 (originally $69.99) plus $4.99 S&H is a quality looking Acupressure Relaxation Mat.
If the pointed plastic looks uncomfortable to you, the effect is actually the opposite. The company claims that when the product is used “regularly for 20 to 40 minutes, you enable your body to release endorphins which in turn stimulates the release of oxytocin, the feel-good hormone. As a result, your body relaxes and releases stress, promoting restful sleep as a result of relief from stressful back and neck pain.”
My husband’s cousin introduced acupressure devices to me last year. Knowing first hand that acupuncture works, I know that acupressure works too. I have seen other mats such as these sold frequently and have always been intrigued. This brand states that they use no glue and no chemicals to manufacture the RELAXAMAT – and it has a 5 year warranty.
For $23 (incl. S&H), I’d say it is a great deal if you suffer from excess stress and/or back and neck pain. Try it out and let me know if you did!
