How it makes me feel after using it. It feels just fabulous. I have become a firm believer in this.
I use it to relieve my chronic lower back pain. The mat doesn’t do much for me; I can’t even feel the little plastic spikes. However, I LOVE the pillow, and I use that under my back or neck, as needed. The relief is wonderful.
I find it relaxing and at times it has put me to sleep. My cat even rolls around on it, silly
I have a lot of chronic issues surrounding pain, fatigue, and inflammation. (Ehlers-Danlos, Fibromyalgia, Migraines, Arthritis). I was skeptical of this but willing to try this instead of another medication change. The first 3-4 mins myself (and my family/friends who tried it) end up rapidly breathing, stiffening up, and feeling like this is a bad idea, lol. I won’t lie; the first few mins (less than 5) hurt pretty bad. I have to be listening to something or watching something to keep my mind off of the discomfort and work on relaxing INTO the spikes. Then suddenly the pain stops, it gets much more comfortable, and I’ve fallen asleep while on it! (So has my family who’ve tried it). It really works on those “trigger spots”. Right now I can do 20-25 mins on it, and then I take a warm shower and go to bed. I am sleeping through the night or only waking up once now (instead of waking up 5+ times due to pain). I’m getting less muscle cramps in my neck and back since I started using it. I won’t lie- the beginning hurts and getting OFF the spikes hurts after you’ve been on it for awhile. But the consistent results I’m getting is worth it. Came in a nice draw-string bag with a carrying strap. Also came with a very nice, heavy-duty hot/cold pack. I also want to clarify that I bought this myself with my own money; I was not given this or reimbursed in any way. I was not asked to make a review, but I wanted to because I have been genuinely satisfied with my purchase. I hope this helps someone out there who may be on the fence of purchasing.
This was a gift for my daughter & at first she was unsure about this & chalked it up to being an odd gift. She was pleasantly surprised how much she liked it once she used it a few times. I'd say it's worth the money!
