Here is what you need to know before you start using your Mysa acupressure mat

Your body will find out how to use Mysa in the manner and frequency that is most suitable for you…learn to listen to it!

To start using your Mysa:

• Find some time to devote only and exclusively to yourself, without any interference or noise. Turn your mobile phone off!

• Choose a well-ventilated room with a stable temperature (not too cold and with no draughts)

• Wear comfortable clothes made of natural fabrics. If you are wearing no clothes, have a blanket with you.

• If possible, do not use it immediately before or after a main meal. It would be preferable to be on an empty stomach or at least not to use it in the hour before or after a meal.

• When exercising with a Mysa mat or pillow, learn to listen to your body and the messages it is sending. Stop treatment if you feel your heart is beating faster than usual or experience any dizziness or weakness.

The very first minutes should be devoted to achieving a state of perfect relaxation: relax the ankle, hip, glute, abdomen, back, chest, arm, neck and head muscles until your whole body is completely relaxed.

When should Mysa be used?

Many users find it to have an energizing effect on them and therefore use it in the morning to “charge” themselves with physical and mental energy. Other users enjoy its relaxing and sleep-inducing properties and prefer to use it in the evening to lighten the load and fall into an immediate deep sleep.

It is advisable not to use it too close to a main meal.

Here is what could be experienced in the first few seconds on a Mysa mat:


  • Warmth
  • Pain in certain areas of the back
  • Acute pain in the vicinity of “protruding” bones (shoulder blades, spine, hips)
  • Palpitations
  • Dizziness
  • Profuse sweating
  • Weakness
  • Drop in blood pressure

All these symptoms suggest acupressure is having a profound effect on the autonomic nervous system, which controls the internal organs and the blood vessels.

If you find such symptoms to be too hard to bear, stop the session and shorten the following ones, gradually increasing their length, heeding the messages sent by your body.

How to handle the initial pain

It is however quite normal to experience some discomfort when you first start using your Mysa!

Nevertheless, your body will get accustomed to it as you keep on using it. Already after the tenth minute compared to the first and after the fifth session compared to the first.

Do not be afraid then if you experience what feels like an unbearable pain! It just means your pain threshold is lower than average! Persevere, relax, try to maintain your position and think of something else.

After a few minutes and a few sessions, the initial pain will turn into a pleasant feeling of widespread warmth as your muscles naturally loosen up and your brain reacts in a way that allows you to feel less pain and more pleasure and relaxation.

If the first few times pain is too severe, place a thin cloth between the microtips and your naked body (e.g. a thin sarong, a thin sheet, a silk towel, etc.) or wear some very light clothes.

If you suffer from psoriasis, place a thin cloth on the mat or stick a plaster on the affected area of your body.  

Finally, if you are on anticoagulants (blood thinners) or are uncertain about your general state of health, please speak with your family doctor.
