Do Acupressure Mats Hurt?
The first time you lay on your Dakini Acupressure Set it will feel somewhat uncomfortable and you may only be able to stay on for 5 minutes or so, this is totally normal! You may experience a prickling sensation when you first lay down, followed by a feeling of warmth in the areas that are being targeted. There is no need to worry though; this sensation is just increased blood circulation and muscle tension being released. The good news is that the body quickly gets used to this sensation and you will be able to relax and stay on for longer the more you use your mats.
