During first few minutes it's common to feel a pricking warm sensation on the areas being affected. But all pain or discomfort is quickly replaced by a pleasant feeling of relaxation.
We suggest that you start with 15 minutes. When more accustomed to the Shaktimat 20-40 minutes per session is standard. However, it is not dangerous to exceed the time limit. Many people fall asleep on the mat and that is perfectly safe. We recommend regular, if possible daily use.
It is possible that the Shakti Mat can contribute to the following:
Decrease in pain
Yes, when needed you can handwash the mat using detergent in luke- warm water. Allow to hang and drip dry. Avoid washing machines and tumble dryers as the plastic points may get damaged.
Nerves branch out from the back to the rest of the body, which means that a back treatment effects the whole body. However, the mat can be used on specific ‘problem areas’ of the body.
Children tend to like it a lot. They calm down and relax. Try using it at bedtime.
We cannot recommend the usage to this particular group of people. Always consult your physician if you have a heart related disease, before using the Shakti Mat.
We do not recommend it for pregnant women. Always consult your midwife before using the Shakti Mat, if you are pregnant.
The points may feel irritating to sensitive or inflamed skin. You may ease the sensation by placing a thin cloth between your skin and the Shakti Mat. You should of course back off and stop the treatment if you feel you are getting worse.
