What: Acupressure Mat for Health and Wellness
Company: Spook Space


Acupressure is an ancient healing art, originating in India and developed in Japan as shiatsu massage. Traditional Chinese medicine uses acupressure as one of its techniques to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. Fingers, thumbs and tools such as an acupressure mat press body points called reflex areas. When reflex areas on the body are pressed, it prompts the body to increase blood circulation and release blocked energy. As a result, acupressure encourages the body to balance itself, easing muscle tension and relieving pain.



The Spoonk™ Mat is based on the principles of the Indian bed of nails and Japanese shiatsu massage. They may stimulate specific reflex points throughout the body to release blocked energy, ease tense muscles and create deep mental and physical relaxation. On your Spoonk™ Mat, 6,210 small spikes provide equal pressure on the body. You simply lay on it, ensuring that your “trouble areas” are covered by the mat’s spikes—and the mat does the rest! The mat’s spikes may stimulate blood circulation, relax tense muscles and induce "feel good" hormones (endorphins and oxytocin) that release feelings of well being and calm.

Review: 

Since I had my son, my sleeping has failed me. I wake up constantly and I'm always complaining of aches and pains. whenever there's a natural method that claims to help I'm willing to try it. When my Spook Mat arrived, I couldn't wait to open it up. Upon opening the package and laying it on the floor to examine it my boyfriend and friend looked at me like I was insane. They both informed me of how painful this mat looked. Let me tell ya, this isn't true.

As I laid down on the mat I felt the spikes and they were bearable. They didn't hurt at all and they were actually soothing. I felt really relaxed and tried it with my shirt on and off. Of course the boys wanted to try it as well and they were impressed!

Most of the mats are made from 55% Organic Hemp and 45% Organic Cotton. The spikes are made from recyclable ABS plastic. This is also made in the USA. This is definitely worth trying!
