Exactly how you use it is entirely up to you. You can use it lying on your back or stomach, standing or while sitting on the floor or a bed/sofa. We suggest that you roll a towel and put it under your lower back beneath the mat to get the maximum effect at that point. You can also roll up a towel and place it under your neck to get the same effect. Experiment until you find the position that suits you best.

The time required varies between individuals and occasions. From 15 minutes and upwards depending on whether you want to stimulate different areas of the body or use one position the whole time. When you use it to rest on a soft surface, such as in bed, you can use it for a long time. Many people fall asleep quite happily on an Acuswedemat. You will soon find out for yourself what works best for you.

“Acuswedemat is fantastic! It covers not just the back but also the neck and bottom and it’s much more intense than the other acupressure mats I’ve used. It’s actually rather addictive and it make’s me wind down and relax before going to sleep.”

If you are an active horse rider, you know that certain muscles – for example in your lower back, shoulders and neck – get a lot of wear and tear. Many prominent riders therefore use Acuswedemat both to prevent and relieve pain and tension. If your shoulders and your back are tense, your ability to impact your horse correctly will suffer. Acuswedemat offers a natural and long-term solution for those who want to prevent problems with stress or pain and achieve perfect balance and flexibility. 

Acupressure works as good on horses as it does on humans. Our acupressure blanket for horses, Accuhorsemat, is used by many elit riders within all disciplines. The result of our infrared camera study which was made on horses, shows with astonishing results that Accuhorsemat really works on horses as a preventive, maintenance and treatment standpoint as well as it is a perfect tool for better recovery. Acuswedemat and Accuhorsemat will help you and your horse to always perform better together.
