Acupressure on the Mysa Mat and Pillow as a natural remedy for joint pain
Joint pain can be caused by a degenerative disease (osteoarthritis, osteochondrosis, etc.) or by inflammation (arthritis, spondylitis, etc.).
It mostly affects older people and is characterized by the slow wear and tear of the cartilages, ligaments and joint capsules.
The main symptoms are usually: pain, stiffness, swelling, decreased range of motion, deformity.
Many practitioners have told us that using a Mysa Mat can often help conventional therapies in case of joint pain.
There are also plenty of articles, in magazine and websites, explaining how acupressure can provide relief by boosting local blood flow.
We have therefore selected the methodologies that have been described to us as the most effective ones.
Here is how to use the Mysa acupressure mat to relieve joint pain in the comfort of your own home.
The Mysa mat (or the Mysa Thermo Pillow) must be pressed against your bare skin, using your hand to push the microtips against the sore joints and applying a steady and uniform pressure.
The Mysa product most suitable for this type of treatment is the Thermo Pillow, especially the one with bio-magnets (Mysa ThermoMag Pillow).
It is advisable to remove the mat or pillow (vegetable-fibre padding) from its case and only use the latter, in order to apply a longer-lasting and more comfortable pressure.
Approximately every 30 seconds, move the case with the microtips by a few millimetres. This will allow acupressure to achieve a more complete stimulation of the affected area.
To treat joint inflammation, it is recommended to use Mysa in conjunction with anti-inflammatory creams: Mysa will indeed boost the effectiveness of the pharmacological treatment.
In case of inflammation, do not warm up your Mysa.
We suggest short but frequent sessions, repeated over the day.
In case of acute pain:
Use Mysa for 5-7 minutes, every 2-3 hours, when pain is most severe.
In case of chronic pain:
We recommend 5-10 minutes, 2-3 times a day.
