Benefits Of An Acupressure Mat – Why Ajna Is The Way To Go!


When you have a headache, what is the first thing you do? You press on your temple. Well that specific act has been studied by the Chinese for over 5,000 years.

Traditional Chinese beliefs rely on balance, for example “ying and yang”. When these powers are thrown off your body is susceptible to disease or pain. Acupuncture and accupressure renew your body by creating Qi.

Qi is believed to be the energy flow from your internal organs to the superficial tissues of your bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and skin. Meridians are the channels that this energy flows through and A-Shi are incredible points of unspecific locations.

By triggering these points you are able to return balance to your body.

The First Acupressure Mat.

Ivan Kuznetsov was a man who had chronic pain all over his body and would have to receive acupuncture sessions quite often. These sessions became very expensive, so Ivan taught himself how to perform acupuncture on his own body.

Because he was unable to reach important areas on his back, Ivan created the “Iplikator”, a sheet of rubber with a thousand pins pierced through 1/4″ apart that he would lay on. This idea worked so well, Ivan patented the idea in 1979.


Ajna Wellbeing has created a high quality, eco-friendly mat made of 5,252 specifically designed spikes to create positive movement within your body, activating its natural healing response.

The ABS plastic safe spikes lay atop antibacterial coconut fibre filling ensuring pleasure and longevity of your mat. The filling is surrounded by a linen and cotton cover for maximum comfort.

AJNAMATS come with a free carrying bag to easily transport your mat from your office, gym, or home! You can take the mat out of the bag, lay it on the floor of your office, and relax while listening to that hour long conference call. By the time your phone call is done, you can conveniently throw it back in your bag and get back to work, releasing all of those unfavorable pains that were clinging to you.

The size of an Ajnamat is 28.7″ height by 17.7″ width and only 1″ thick!

You are able to hand wash the cotton cover of your mat with cold water and a light detergent, then hang to air dry.

ajna-poseSteps To Comfort.

Looking at a mat, full of spikes, can be very intimidating. You know that many have gained relief, but you are unsure to follow in their footsteps.

Let’s take it easy! When you first receive your mat, lay it down on the bed and throw a thick shirt on. The shirt will protect your skin and the cushion of the bed will ease the pressure.

Okay, so that feels pretty good right?

Let’s take it a step further. Grab your mat and head into the living room. Place your mat on the couch with the bottom of the mat on the back of the couch. If you are willing, use a thin shirt this time.

Not too bad?

Depending on your bodies reaction, you can relax with your head back on the couch for 20 minutes or you can move to the next step.

The most successful position for your AJNAMAT will be on a hard floor surface such as wood, linoleum, or tile. You can wear whatever thickness for your top that you feel comfortable with. Sit down and roll your back onto the mat. Place your arms off to the side, so that your shoulders and back are completely touching the spikes. Lay there for about 20 minutes. For users with chronic back problems, relaxing 20-40 minutes will give you the best results.

There are so many options for this mat! You can add it to your yoga, step on it for 15 minutes after a long day, or add pillows or towels under mat to apply pressure! Have fun and use your imagination!

Buyers Reviews.


There has been one complaint of the spikes being to painful and actually poking a customers finger when they went to lay on the mat.


Because of the quality of the AJNAMAT, buyers are thrilled with the spikes being more efficient and not as painful, as other mat they have tried in the past.

A lot of buyers use the mat before bed. Many have said that you have to get used to the spikes at first, but after a couple tries they are able to lay on the mat with bare skin.

Suggested use of the mat for meditation or yoga, and some have even fallen asleep on it.

Buyers with sciatica would not know how to deal with the pain, had it not been for this mat!

    I have suffered back pain for years. I have battled sciatica and had a discectomy which did bring some relief, however, I still suffer chronic lower back pain. I took a complementary health class in college when I was getting my bachelors degree in nursing. We discussed acupuncture and acupressure. We tried a few small experiments. I was fascinated! I would really be interested in trying this product. Great post, great information.

    1. It is portable and easy to use, I love it! There are a lot of mats, but I feel that AJNAMAT is the most effective. Chronic back pain is no joke! I have been finding different ways to deal with it, but AJNAMAT sure helps!
