The Mysa acupressure mat and pillow as a helping hand to relieve the symptoms of Gastritis
Many Mysa users have reported experiencing a reduction in the discomfort and the symptoms caused by gastritis…a very unpleasant and annoying disorder caused by the “nice” Helicobacter Pylori.
More and more practitioners and naturopaths resort to Mysa’s acupressure to treat their patients suffering from gastritis.
They have suggested a few ways of using our Mysa, which have proven to be particularly effective.
First of all, which area must be treated?
It is a limited and well-defined one: i.e. the stomach and the pancreas. The microtips must therefore target the upper abdomen and the upper back.
In each session, it is necessary to treat both areas, alternating between them, for the same amount of time and with the same intensity.
Lie prone (on your stomach) on a Mysa mat or pillow, targeting specifically the upper abdomen, for a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 20 minutes.
Then, turn around and lie supine (on your back) for a further 5-20 minutes, targeting the upper back.
A session should entail lying on each side two-three times.
Time and frequency of treatment
In case of acute gastritis:
3-5 times a day for 5-7 minutes on each area until symptoms disappear.
In case of chronic gastritis:
2-3 times a day. More precisely: 7-15 minutes in the morning, 5-7 minutes in the afternoon and evening. The morning session is very important as it is more effective than the later ones.
It is recommended to go on until symptoms disappear. You can in any case continue treatment for at least a month up to a maximum of 2 months (and then stop for a while), preferably every other day, if not every day.
Alternative use on the abdomen:
If you cannot lie on your stomach, you can still use the Mysa mat or pillow (ideally only the cases, without the internal padding) by pushing it with your hands against the upper abdomen. Alternatively, you can attach the case with the microtips with a bandage or you can lie on your back and press the fabric with the microtips against the upper abdomen using a heavy cushion (some practitioners use a sandbag or some other equally heavy material…).
