What is it?
If you haven't already seen one, tried one, or at least heard about the Shakti mat - be prepared. This mat sold 300.000 pieces last year in Sweden alone. And now the inventor is ready for a world-wide launch.The Shakti Mat’s distinctive design is reminiscent of the Indian bed of nails, an ancient healing practice used by mystics to achieve deep meditative states. Our Shakti mat combines thousands of years of Indian tradition with modern technology to aid in the healing process and help release emotional, physical and mental blockages.When you lie on the Shakti Mat, it prompts the body to produce good hormones such as endorphins and oxytocin. Endorphins are normally released during physical movement and exercise, and help support body against pain. Oxytocin helps you relax and allows you to fall asleep more easily.
How to use the Shakti mat. In order to get used to the Applicator’s spines, your applicator may be placed on the back of a chair or sofa while watching television or doing some other activity. You can then sit against the applicator, positioning your lower (or upper) back against the circles of spines. In this position, your applicator can be used for up to 2 hours.We recommend placing a thin cotton t-shirt between the mat and your back first several sessions to get used to it. Place the mat on a hard surface or on the bed with the firm mattress., sit near the edge of the mat and then lie back slowly. Do not slide or move around once you’re lying down on the pressure points. After a few minutes, your body will feel warm and relaxed. Start with 15 minutes a day and gradually encrease time to up to 30 minutes a day to completely experience its benefits.
What is Shakti?
Shakti from Sanskrit shak - "to be able," meaning sacred force or empowerment, is the primordial cosmic energy and represents the dynamic forces that are thought to move through the entire universe in Hinduism. Shakti is the concept, or personification, of divine feminine creative power, sometimes referred to as 'The Great Divine Mother' in Hinduism. On the earthly plane, Shakti most actively manifests through female embodiment and fertility, though it is also present in males in its potential, unmanifest form.
