Using Your Muscle Mat
The most common areas to use your Muscle Mat on are your back, feet, neck and shoulders. Apply weight from these areas onto the mat to feel the warmth, relaxation and pain relief that the mat can provide.
We recommend starting use on your back as this is the most simple way to use the mat. Lay your Muscle Mat and pillow on a bed or the floor. position the pillow directly on the back of your neck.
Lay yourself onto the mat ensuring even weight across the points of the mat. The first few minutes on the mat may be a little uncomfortable however this subsides quickly. If you find the mat too sharp initially, place a thin sheet on the mat.
The first 5 minutes of use on the mat may feel very prickly however this will soon become a nice warmth.
For the first few days we recommenced using the mat for around 10 minutes as you build up a tolerance. After a few sessions, you should really start to feel the benefits of the mat. The effects should become more apparent the more you use the mat.
After you have started to get used to the feeling of your Muscle Mat we recommend increasing your time spent on the mat to at least 20 minutes. You will start to find how the mat best works for you. Some people lay on the mat as soon as they wake up to loosen their muscles ready for a great day and some people use the mat just before bed to relax, ready for an excellent sleep.
After 2 weeks, you will have learned how the mat effects you personally. Some people find it best in the morning and others find it best at night. At this point, lay on the mat as long as you like. Enjoy!
