I have been using the Pranamat massage set for the last few weeks and I wanted to share with you my review. I was initially really interested on reading up about the Pranamat as it had loads of good reviews, for relaxation (who would say no to a daily massage!) as well as for reducing neck pain. I suffer from a recurring neck pain from a historic accident.
Pranamat ECO is the world’s #1 acupressure massage set. “It provides deep, intense massage in comfort of your own home. Massage has multiple benefits for health and self-care; it releases muscle-tension, improves skin-tone, eases headaches and migraines, improves the quality of your sleep, and makes you feel happier and healthier!” what’s not to love about that.
When the pranamat arrived I was initially surprised at how spiky the spikes were! I was worried that it was going to hurt and that I wouldn’t like it. The set itself consists of a mat and a pillow and to ease yourself into it, you can start by using it with a thin t shirt and leggings, rather than on bare skin. You can also use it on a soft surface like a bed, rather than on the floor. I decided that I was going to go for it though, and used it on my bare skin and on the floor.
So it takes about 5 minutes to get over the prickly sensation and it then becomes like a warm tingly sensation. Afterwards I definitely felt relaxed.
How does it work? Pranamat say “When you lay down on it, thousands of acupressure points thoroughly massage your back; relieving tension, knots and spasms in the muscles. The sensation you have after using Pranamat ECO is very similar to that of a classical massage. Stunning results can be observed after just a few sessions!”
I have been using the Pranamat massage set for over 2 weeks now, as part of my daily routine. I look forward to my half hour session. I have found the most relaxing way to use it is when I am warm and comfortable, so I use it on the bed with the covers over me. I listen to something relaxing on YouTube and really find that afterward I am totally relaxed and able to go straight to sleep. Prior to using it, I would sometimes struggle to sleep after a busy day. It is definitely fitted unto my life and given me some “me time” which was well needed, and for that I am very grateful.
I spoke to a friend who saw my Insta post about Pranamat. She has been using it for a year and says the longer terms effects are amazing, she no longer has any back or neck pain and that she notices they start to creep back if she misses a few session. In terms of my own neck pain, I have not had any since I have been using the mat. Have already recommended to a friend for her back pain.
This Pranamat was gifted in return for an honest review.
