How to Use Mysa
Lie on the Mysa mat in the comfort of your own home whenever and as often as you want. Rest your back (or any other area of your body) on it for 20-50 minutes, depending on the condition you wish to treat and the amount of time at your disposal. Each Mysa acupressure mat comes with a user guide to help you reap the full benefits of acupressure.
All Mysa mats measure about 85 x 45 cm (32 x 17 inches), whereas our Thermo Pillow is considerably smaller than an ordinary bed pillow. They are not designed to be slept on for a prolonged period of time. However, they contain no electronic components and can be used anywhere. You can place them on a bed, carpet, armchair, sofa or chair and lie/sit on them while watching TV, meditating, reading a book, etc. You can use them in the morning (and enjoy the benefits of acupressure for the whole day) or in the evening before bedtime (in order to relax and facilitate sleep).
Set aside at least twenty minutes and, at a time of your choosing, go to a quiet room or one with soft music playing in the background. Place your Mysa acupressure mat on a bed, armchair or any other comfortable surface, take four deep breaths and forget the world outside. Relax your body and enjoy the wonderful sensation its microtips will spread all over your body!
You can lie on it as often as you want. We recommend using it at least three times a week for a minimum of 20 minutes. However, this will depend on the therapy and the condition you wish to treat. It is important not to place the mat on an uneven surface and not to move or roll your body when lying on it. If you wish to change position, simply sit up and lie down again in the desired position. Drink plenty of water to allow your inner energy to rebalance.
The Mysa mat should not be used by pregnant women and, more generally, by anyone suffering from: Skin lesions or irritations such as sunburn, inflammation, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis or open wounds — Chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or thrombophlebitis — Coagulation disorders (haemophilia) — Any type of heart disease — Low blood pressure — Hypersensitive skin. Furthermore, the Mysa mat should not be used by anyone taking anticoagulants (warfarin, enoxaparin, heparin) in order to avoid the risk of developing a subcutaneous haemorrhage or haematoma.
Learn to listen to your body when you lie on your Mysa acupressure mat and you will understand how to reap maximum benefits from it.
1. After each session, it is advisable to continue relaxing by drinking fluids or to lightly exercise in order to "re-awaken" your body.
2. Tolerance to the discomfort caused by acupressure differs from individual to individual and can also vary due to temporary circumstances (illness, altered physical or psychological state, medication, changes in body weight, etc.). Therefore, the first time you use your Mysa mat, wear some light clothes (such as a t-shirt) and do not lie on it for more than 10 minutes (better still, if around midday). This way, you will be able to precisely assess your level of tolerance to the mat’s tips and your body’s reaction to them.
3. You should not discontinue any medical treatment prescribed by your doctor or other healthcare professional when starting using the Mysa mat.
4. We recommend you always ask your family doctor whether you should begin to use the Mysa mat or even stop using it in the unlikely event of any adverse reaction, however minimal.
5. By encouraging the release of oxytocin, the Mysa mat can cause drowsiness. It is therefore recommended not to drive after using it.
6. Only use the Mysa mat as explained on this website.
