The Dr. Kez Acupressure Mat Australia can also be used to target other areas of the body including arms, thighs, calves, and hamstrings. You can lay on it, roll on it, sit on it, stand on it, stretch on it. Ahhh the possibilities!
Acupressure is based on the concept of life energy which flows through “meridians” in the body and applying pressure, non-invasively, to acupressure points with the aim to clear blockages in these meridians. Acupressure restores balance to the body's energy flow, stimulating energy, vitality, and a sense of well-being in the body.
Inspired by acupuncture in traditional Chinese medicine, Acupressure Mats are a modified version that you can do at home. The unique design actually hits thousands of acupressure points all at once, resulting in natural pain relief and relaxation. The spikes on the mat may look uncomfortable, but the gentle, pressure of the mat allows the body to relax and release endorphins, creating a life force within the body. The first few times you use the mat, it may feel uncomfortable for the first 5-10 minutes and you may then feel a warming sensation after your skin has adapted and your muscles begin to relax. Remember, you can use a cloth barrier as an option if it becomes too intense.
The Dr. Kez Acupressure Mat Australia Cover
The Dr. Kez Acupressure Mat Australia cover is 100% cotton and features a natural, eco-friendly, 100% Organic Coconut Fibre inner core which:
- promotes airflow

NOTE: Acupressure Mats and Pillows are unable be returned due to hygiene reasons. Thanks for understanding!
What a great question to ask, "How to Use the Acupressure Mat Australia?" If you are new to the Acupressure Mat experience, it may feel a little uncomfortable to have thousands of points pressing into your skin and you may feel some initial pricking sensation during the very first few minutes on the areas being treated. But all pain or discomfort should be quickly replaced by a pleasant feeling of relaxation. We recommend wearing a t-shirt or placing a towel or sheet down first. This will decrease the intensity of each point to your body. As you gain more experience, you will be able to use the mat directly on your bare skin, which is where you will get the most benefits from.
Place the mat on a flat surface like the floor, couch or bed. To make yourself more comfortable you can place a yoga mat or rug underneath for more cushioning. If you still require a form of comfort or support, try using pillows or a cushion for your head or legs. Lie down with your back on the mat and the pillow supporting your neck. Then bend your knees, keeping your feet flat on the floor. This will increase contact between the mat and your lower back, but you can stretch your legs out if that's more comfortable.
Dr. Kez Acupressure Mat Australia Recommendations
It is recommended that you start with a minimum of 10 minutes and increase the time by 5 minutes with each use until you reach 30-40 minutes. Of course, if you can handle more at the beginning, go for it! The longer you lay on the mat, the longer your body has to gain all the benefits. If you fall asleep, that is A-OK! Just remove the mat when you wake up. It is safe to use for longer periods.
You may find that after use, your skin has little tiny impressions from the spikes. If you want to play dot-to-dot with them, you will only have about 45-90 minutes before they fade, depending on your skin and the amount of time spent on the mat.
Your skin may become slightly red after use due to the increased blood circulation which will fade after about 30-60 minutes.
Getting an extra pillow? A few minutes on the D-shaped Acupressure Pillow is all it takes to begin to stimulate acupressure points and start to feel the benefits. These can include dramatically increasing circulation, assisting pain relief, enhancing recovery, aiding mindfulness and supporting general vitality as your body responds. And all you have to do is enjoy a lovely little lie down to get the good things happening!
- Place under the neck for helping to increase blood flow to the neck and brain which assists with relieving tension, headaches and migraines

- Lay on your tummy for assisted digestion
- Lay with the Acupressure Pillow horizontally down the spine for help stretching and opening up the chest muscles
- Stand on the Acupressure Pillow (with bare feet if you dare!!) to ease sore feet and increase blood circulation after a long day of standing. Great for the relief of achy feet and Plantar Fasciitis.
- Can be used on multiple areas of the body such as under the arms and in between the legs to help stimulate meridians throughout your body
How to use the Acupressure Pillow:
- Choose your body position where you want to place the Acupressure Pillow
- It starts with a tingling feeling on the skin and them a warmth washes over the area as the blood circulation increases.
- Lay for 10 mins to as long as you like!
- Close your eyes for deeper mindfulness
- Once you are finished, slowly rise from the Acupressure Pillow
- If you have an Acupressure Mat, it's a great idea to lay on this at the same time to maximise the meridians throughout your body
- If you are using the Acupressure Pillow to stand on, you can keep your socks on for less intensity and if you want to ramp it up, go bare! If you like, rock forward and back to help cover all of your heels and toes and even act like a Stalk and go one leg at a time! Tree Pose anyone?

Acupressure Mat with Pillow
Oh my goodness, this mat is pure bliss. I use it morning and night and feel simply fabulous. I find by using in bed at night before going to sleep it assists me for a more restful nights sleep. I even fell asleep on the mat when I used it during the day. WOW......thank you Dr Kez
Acupressure mat with pillow
I have been suffering from nerve pain down my leg coming from my lower back. I have extremely sore calf muscles, due to compensating for my pain. I ordered one of these mats and my nerve pain has dramatically reduced to very minor and my sore muscles have now gone. I lie on this mat each night for 30 minutes and usilise the pillow under my calf muscles and i cant thankyou enough for the relief i get. Highly recommend.
I am so pleased I purchased this acupressure mat and pillow. I have finally found chemical free relief from my frequent migraines. I feel such a sense of relaxation that I’ve woken up to discover I’ve taken a nap on my mat. Comes in a handy carry bag which is large enough to pop in a towel and carry with you when travelling or to the office for use in your lunch break. Love it so much I brought one as a gift for my wife. Highly recommend this to my family, friends and colleagues.
Soo far Iam working toward full use of the mat on a hard surface - but I have already had some nice energy releases
