Relieve Your ACHES And PAINS With A @Doshamat Acupressure Mat

Turning forty next week has it's pros and cons!  
I've honestly gotta say, the past forty years of my life have been a roller coaster!  I've experienced some simply amazing moments and some really, incredibly hard times.  FOR REAL!  It also means that my body has seen 40 years on this earth and it's starting to feel a little worn already!  
I'm not joking!

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about this product.
Some days, I feel incredible!  I feel like the vibrant 18 year old that I think I am in my brain.  And some mornings I roll out of bed and feel like an 80 year old woman.  Aches and pains in my back, neck, shoulder knots from stress, etc.  THIS IS ME...just being real!  And honestly, my husband, who is only a few months younger than me (yes, he married an older gal) has been experiencing some AGING pains in his lower back & sciatic nerve area.  Getting old sucks!
So have you heard of an acupressure mat?  
I'm talking about Doshamat Acupressure Mats.
I'm not going to lie.  My first attempt at standing on the acupressure mat for five minutes (this was the suggested starting time) was a little rough.  These lotus flower TIPS are shockingly painful at first.  They poke into every single pressure point on the bottom of your feet.  But I took some deep breaths and managed through it.  The bottoms of my feet were speckled with little tiny pin like pokes (not through the skin) that showed exactly where each lotus petal tip was pushing on the bottom of my feet.
My kids, of course, were super intrigued.  They insisted on trying it out, of course being monitored by me.  There were some screams and lots of giggles.  The best reaction was my 14 year old bonus son...he cracked me up the most.  
He was an immediate pessimist about the acupressure mat.  Funny thing, I explained how it worked, what it's supposed to do and he stepped on to try it out himself.  Yes, it hurts at first.  But I told him to take some deep breaths and try to think about being light on his feet.  When he got off the mat, he exclaimed how shocked he was, that he actually did feel better!  He's been doing a lot of marching (he's in marching band at school) and he said that this actually made a difference (for the better) in how he felt, even after only 5 minutes.  

How Do Acupressure Mats Work?

I sat last night on this Doshamat Acupressure Mat while watching TV and even though I had some clothes on, I could still feel the lotus flower tips pushing through the thin fabric and into my skin.  It really is the weirdest thing, but it does relieve stress and relaxes your body.  
When we were done watching our show, I was ready for bed...and fell immediately asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow.  Coincidence?  Maybe...or maybe it was because the tension & stress from my day had somehow melted away on this Doshamat Acupressure Mat.
I've been building up a tolerance for staying on the mat for longer than 5 minutes.  Recommended use is between 15-20 minutes and also on bare skin (instead of through clothes) like bare feet.  Like I said, I think this does take some time to build up to this point...but I can definitely see myself getting to that 20 minute point and even wanting more eventually.  Plus, I am trying to do this first thing in the morning (for energy and to start my day out right) and about 20 minutes before bedtime, so I can immediately crawl in bed and enjoy the benefits as I sleep.
What would you be willing to pay to have some of your aches and pains dissolved after only 5-20 minutes of using an acupressure mat?  The Doshamat Acupressure Mat is under $100 and to me, that's well worth the investment of less tension in my body, a better nights sleep and even a more pain free life experience.  
I mean, for $100 bucks, it's worth the shot, right?  
Oh yeah...and did I mention these acupressure mats have been known to also help with weight loss, increased circulation and a reduction of cellulite?

It's the type of gift that keeps on giving!

If nothing else, it's worth the giggles from the kids when they attempt the five minute trial if nothing else.  Just kidding...kinda!  These acupressure mats really do make a difference!  I'm shocked (I was kind of skeptical too) and so very thankful!  
This will be something I will be using on a daily basis from now on!
