How to use The Shakti Mat
Place your Shakti Mat on a flat surace or on a bed. A neck pillow is useful or a rolled up towel underneath the mat to support your neck. Ruth White Yoga blocks
are especially useful, as the softer recycled full and half blocks allow you to adjust the height. Lie so that your your skin rests in contact with the points. Relax and breathe deeply. If you are sensitive to pain you may like to try with a thin cloth between yourself and the mat, not too thick otherwise you will not feel the benefit of the Shakti Mat pressure points. Start with 10-15 minutes then progressively increase to longer sessions, typically 20-40 minutes.
There are detailed instructions included with each mat.
