How to use

The Hero Shrew Acupressure Mat and Pillow are used to help with back and neck pain relief, deep relaxation, tension relief and restful sleep. With more than 6000 acupressure nails on the mat and more than 50 on the pillow, you can relax your way to pain relief. You can use them either as a set, or separately for any amount of time from 20 minutes to as long as you wish every day. 

The acupressure nails will provide targeted stimulation to your body to help it heal itself. For the first few minutes once you lie on the mat and pillow, you may feel a little pain and then you will start experiencing a warm sensation and an amazing feeling of deep relaxation. Your tensed muscles may start pulsating as if you are having an acupressure treatment. What is actually happening is that the nails stimulate the body to release endorphins and trigger the body to heal itself. 

You can use either at various locations depending on where you feel pain or tension.  For best results use direct on skin.

For the Back - place the acupressure mat at your back and relax on it, legs down or folded:
