The practise of Acupressure is from Eastern roots, it is a long-standing and well trusted practice. In western culture, the practise is quite new however it dates back 2,000 years and is now adopted by reputable practitioners around the world. The Muscle Mat mimics this ancient technique to reproduce the benefits and make the practice of acupressure more widely available.
Children tend to really enjoy using The Muscle Mat, because they relax in to it very quickly. It may help to calm and relax them, making it great to use after school, or at bedtime. Always assist, or supervise, while they are getting on, or off the Mat. Consider using the mat with a shirt on for their first use so that they can get used to the feeling.
