Last year, my friend gave me a birthday gift that keeps on giving in that it's saved me a small fortune. She gifted me an at-home acupressure mat which is perfect for self-care but it also means I no longer have to book in and pay for massage appointments. I went from having no clue what an acupressure mat was to using one of these pressure point sets near enough every night before bed. And the positive impact on my sleep? A real game changer.
As part of the lead-up to the Amazon Prime Day event happening July 12th through July 13th, 2022, Amazon has already begun deducting prices. So right now you can bag yourself a DoSensePro Acupressure Mat and Pillow Massage Set for 37% less!
Since a lot of my life is spent raking up the miles in some of the best running shoes for women, or building up strength and muscle in the gym, I have to factor in massages every now and again to avoid experiencing DOMS. However, this can be a very costly service and with the cost of living crisis heightening this year, I've never used my acupressure mat more.
The mat itself is packed full of tiny spikes that gently press into your neck, back, and head. All you have to do, is lay down and relax. It really is a money-efficient way to invest in your own self-care.
Here is what you need to know about this fantastic Amazon Prime Day deal that's available now...
DoSensePro Acupressure Mat and Pillow Massage Set |
was $63.00, now $39.97 at Amazon
This massaging acupressure pad is both relaxing and revitalizing, and is now $23 cheaper at Amazon. The deal includes an acupressure mat and pillow, a hot & cold pack, and a bag for transporting it, so you'll never need to book in for a massage again.
I love this model in particular because it's been designed longer to benefit taller people (like me). I enjoy taking full advantage of the 29-inch long deep tissue massager mat when I struggle to sleep. After 10 minutes of sinking your body into it, you start to feel a strong sense of relaxation and it has a sleep-inducing effect.
The best part is that because you're laying down, you can simply focus on relaxing and give yourself the time you need to be present after a hectic day at work.
It's also great for improving circulation around your body. Moving into different positions on the acupressure mat helps to stimulate your blood circulation, this is essential if you want to maintain healthy blood and oxygen flow as you age.
If you're looking for ways to save on salon and clinic appointments but don't want to compromise on selfcare, this mat is well worth the money.
