You may have noticed that some of our items have estimated shipping/dispatch dates. This happens when an item is on pre order. A pre order means that we are currently out of stock but you are able to still place an order so your order is sent out as soon as we receive our stock for that item :)
If you're not sure if your item is a pre order, you can check out the product page on our website for your item and it will say there if it is a pre order.
We try to send out all orders as fast as we can! However, there may be a few reasons why your order hasn't shipped yet. These could be:
1. Your order is a pre order. A pre order is when we are currently out of stock for that particular item yet you are still able to place an order so that it is sent as soon as we get stock on the estimated date :). We notify current pre orders on the product page, at checkout and on confirmation. If you're not sure if your item is a pre order, you can check out the product page on our website for your item and it will say there if it is a pre order.
2. It is a holiday or sales period. In busy periods such as during sales and holidays, our processing times may be longer due to increased amount of orders.
3. There is an error with your order. This could be due to incomplete details, issues with payment or some other reason. If your order is not a pre order (check the product page of your item on our website to check if you aren't sure), it is not a holiday period, and it has been more than 3 business days, please send us an email and our friendly team will look into it asap! firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have multiple items in the same order, we usually send our items together, but in separate parcels as they are bulky. AusPost usually delivers them together, but sometimes they accidentally separate them. If this happens, the other parcel(s) should arrive in the next few days. Please send us an email (email@example.com) if it doesn't arrive within 5 business days of your first parcel arriving.
To track your other parcels, find your tracking number link (this should have been emailed to you) and click on it. You should see a dropdown menu that says, for example, 'Item 1 of 2.' Click that dropdown and then select 'Item 2 of 2' to see the tracking updates of the other parcel.
We have had many of our lovely customers on NDIS plans place an order with us! Our Relax Mats and Mattress toppers are particularly popular for our customers placing NDIS orders. We are not a registered NDIS provider but we can certainly make an invoice which you can pay yourself or send to your plan manager!
Please send us an email, and include the following information:
- Product details (size, colour and quantity)

- Participant name and NDIS number
Our friendly team will then email you back with a link to pay and also a PDF invoice.
Sometimes our return emails and invoices are filtered to your spam/junk folders, so make sure to check there!
Our system only allows for one discount to be applied. This includes but is not limited to offers, sales, promotions, discount codes, vouchers and gift cards. As only one discount to price can be applied, if you have multiple discounts, we recommend using the one that gives you the largest discount :). See our Terms of Service for more information.
To clean your Acupressure Mat, remove the inner foam, and only wash the the outer cover. Gently hand wash with a mild detergent. Hang to air dry. Do not iron, do not bleach, do not tumble dry, do not apply any heat.
Outer Cover: To clean your weighted blanket cover, remove the inner and cold machine wash on gentle setting. Hang to air dry. Do not iron, do not bleach, do not tumble dry, do not apply any heat.
Inner blanket: If you would like to freshen it up, sprinkle baking soda all over, wait 5-15 minutes, then vacuum. We recommend only cleaning the inner more deeply if there are liquid spills or stains. In this case we recommend a spot clean. First vacuum, then use a spray bottle filled with water and a few drops of laundry liquid (approx 1 part laundry liquid to 15 parts water). Spray the affected areas and then let air dry outside until fully dry. Ensure it is completely dry before use, if it is damp it could cause mould issues. Do not bleach, do not iron, do not tumble dry, do not apply any heat.
For minor stains, we recommend spot cleaning. First vacuum, then use a spray bottle filled with water and a few drops of laundry liquid (approx 1 part laundry liquid to 15 parts water). Spray the affected areas and then let air dry outside until fully dry.For a deeper clean, our Mattress Toppers can be cold hand washed. Hang to Air Dry. Do not iron, do not tumble dry, do not apply any heat.
When you first receive your Relax Mat, you may need to iron it to get any creases out caused by transportation. For most stains and spills, simply wipe away with a wet cloth. You can use a small amount of gentle detergent mixed with water to wipe away more stubborn stains. Regular vacuuming is recommended. Do not place furniture on the Relax Mat, as this may compact the foam and it will not be able to fully rebound.
We recommend a cool hand wash with a mild detergent and hang to air dry. For a quick freshen up, you can hang on the washing line dry in the sun to help freshen it up, as UV rays are a great disinfectant!
When you receive your Relax Mat, it may have some folds or creases due to the way it is packed. We recommend opening it and lying it flat for 1-6 hours. We then recommend using an iron/steamer on minimum heat and max steam settings to iron out the folds. Do not hold the iron in one spot. Instead do multiple passes if you need extra ironing to remove a stubborn crease :)
Older 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 and supervise, while they are getting on, during their session and when they get off the Muscle Mat. Consider using the mat with a shirt on for their first use so that they can get used to the feeling. It is not suitable for small children under the age of 10.
Weighted blankets should not be used on children under 10 as they could be dangerous and could cause serious injury or death. Small children under 4 should never use weighted blankets.
Here at Muscle Mat, your health and safety is of utmost importance. We receive messages daily asking if our acupressure mats or weighted blankets will help with certain medical conditions and if they are safe to be used. We find that many of our customers say that they find relief, however we cannot give medical advice. While acupressure and weighted blankets are generally safe and of low risk, we always advise to talk to your doctor before using them if you have any medical conditions. Similarly, we cannot give medical advice relating to your condition and the possibility of the mat or blanket helping with your specific condition, and recommend that you speak with your doctor first.
We generally advise against using the Muscle Mat as a safety precaution while pregnant, as there is some evidence to suggest that it may induce labour. Every pregnancy is different, so choosing to use an acupressure mat while pregnant is a decision to be made with your doctor to ensure there are no risks. Some women find acupressure mats help in the early stages of pregnancy, however please discuss with your doctor first.
Acupressure mats are based on the concept of acupressure. The practise of acupressure is from Eastern roots, where it is a long-standing practice. In Western culture, the practise is quite new, however it dates back 2,000 years and is now being adopted into people's lives around the world. The Muscle Mat mimics this ancient technique to reproduce the benefits and make the practice of acupressure more widely available. The Good Body has an awesome write up about Acupressure mats that you can find here.
We find that unless you have an extra deep mattress, most fitted sheets have enough extra room to fit the mattress topper :). If your mattress is extra deep or your sheets are very tight, you may need to use extra deep sheets or sheets of the next size up.
We find that our toppers are quite neutral in terms of heat. They are not too hot or too cool. We have customers from Far North Queensland who love them and also customers from Tasmania who likewise love them! Many customers have commented that they are great for all seasons.
A great tip is to use flannelette sheets in the cooler months; and cotton, linen or bamboo sheets in the warmer months!
Our Mattress Toppers are very popular for caravan and campervan beds! Caravan beds are notoriously uncomfortable, and we have had lots of customers tell us that their Muscle Mat Mattress Topper has greatly improved the comfort of their mattress.
The ends of the topper aren’t rounded like some caravan mattresses, but the topper is flexible and so this isn't an issue once sheets are put on.
If your mattress isn't a standard size, we recommend measuring the dimensions, and then matching it as close as you can to the sizes we offer. The dimesions are in the description on the mattress topper product page here: musclemat.com.au/luxury-mattress-topper
If your mattress is in between 2 sizes (e.g. larger than a Double but smaller than a Queen), we would recommend getting the bigger size.
We get a few questions about what size to get depending on your bed. For example, sometimes people wonder if they have a Queen sized bed, should they get a Queen topper? The answer is YES :). We recommend getting the same sized topper as your bed.
We cannot guarantee that our topper does not contain any allergens. For example, it does not contain latex directly but is made in the same facility as latex products. For this reason, we do not recommend using it if you have any allergies to certain materials.

1. It is the weekend - our business days are Monday to Friday. Please be patient and we will be in contact as soon as we can :).
