What to look for when buying a mat

You will find that there are a variety of mats available on the market and that when you are looking at buying an acupressure mat, the prices can range from $20 up to $300 plus.

Things to consider:

NO nasty chemicals – It is important to consider that the mat will be used on and against your skin and you don’t want any cheap nasty chemicals that could cause irritation, allergy, infection or damage to you or your skin.

Spike Quality – The quality of the acupressure spikes is also very important. If purchasing a mat ensure that there are NO cheap spikes created out or unhealthy chemicals. The plastic should be of medical grade quality that will not break or collapse. They should be designed so that they won’t pierce your skin. Check the review of the buyers to see if anyone has had any of these types of problems with their mat.

Quality Materials – Will the materials last multiple uses and cleanings. Are the materials and quality durable as well as environmentally safe products used, especially as you are using this on your body over a period of time, it needs to stand up to consistent pressure and use over time.

Ethical employment – As most of these mats are made in countries like India and China, it is important to make sure the company from which you have purchased this product is committed to fair employment practices in the creation of the acupressure products.

Pricing – You don’t have to spend a fortune to get a quality mat. But remember you want the mat to be a quality item and to last a good period of time. My mat was a Christmas gift so I didn’t have to buy it which was an awesome plus for me.

Instructions for use – There are a number of ways that an acupressure mat can be used. It can be used on different parts of the body, for relaxation, exercise yoga, meditation. Ensure your mat comes with instructions for use including any do’s and don’ts for its use.

Caring and Cleaning: Check that the product can be easily cleaned and cared for in a reasonable manner. Can you wash and clean the pressure spikes of the product without it being damaged? Make sure there are care instructions and recommendations for keeping your mat hygienic included with your purchase.

Warranty: What kind of warranty is offered with the product purchase? Check if there a trial and return period or a quality or manufacturer guarantee.

  1. Those mats with the acupressure spikes are really interesting, I haven’t seen anything like them before.
    I like the purple one with the 5 year warranty, and the prices of them all are fair.

    It’s great that you had a video to see how she does her massage work. I’ll have to show these to my daughter, she works for the local newspaper and is in front of her laptop all day. She gets a sore neck and back often.

    Thanks for the information it was an interesting read.

  2. Hi Mary, thanks so much for this review. I’ve never heard of Shakti Mats before. I suffer from Migraines and this seems to be really helpful. My favorite is the Original Shakti Acupressure Mat and the price is reasonable. Thanks for sharing!
