Today I am introducing you to Ajnamat Organic Accupressure Mat. Ajna is the competition of my previous mentioned Pranamat ECO, but offers more affordable products. Ever since I discovered acupressure mats on Instagram, I fell in love with them and dreamed of owning one. I never thought of two different ones, but well.. Now I do! I honestly never knew if these acupressure mats would fit my body’s needs, but it really does. Today I am sharing my review with you, which can help you with deciding if you’d like to invest in these products, or not.
During the organisation of my Summer Yoga Challenge #SummerVibingYogis2, one of my co-hosts reached out to Ajnawellbeing on Instagram regarding sponsoring our challenge. They agreed and offered each host an Ajnamat Organic Accupressure Mat. We could choose our favorite colour (we all chose pink, hehe) and were very excited for it to arrive. None of us had ever tried a mat like this, so we couldn’t wait to try them out!

My opinion about Ajnamat Organic Acupressure Mat:
As mentioned above, I was very excited for my Ajnamat Organic Acupressure Mat to arrive. It took a few weeks for the shipment to arrive and I was very happy when the mailman rang my doorbell. I could finally try out Ajnamat!
I decided to lie down on it. At first I wore a sweater because I didn’t know how the spikes would feel on my skin. I could feel some pressure, but it didn’t felt special yet as the sweater was too thick for the spikes to get through the tissue. I decided to take it off and to lie down only wearing a sports bra. The feeling is painful at first, because your skin is not used to this feeling of pressure. But after a while you get used to it and the feeling of relief comes through. You can really feel your back relieving with each breath you take. I started with 5 minutes to begin with, but now I can use it for much longer.
It’s best to use Ajnamat for at least 5 minutes to enjoy the benefits of it.
When I am going through a stressy period and/ or feel tired, my lower back feels more painful than normally. This means that I need some back stretches to relief the pain, but also to lie down on my Ajnamat. I prefer to use it after my yoga practice and while watching Netflix.
After my Ajnamat session I feel a huge relief and tingly feeling in my back. That feeling makes me feel zen and happy.
I sometimes have heavy legs and that feeling gets worse by evening. That’s why Ajnamat is perfect for me! I also use it while watching my favorite tv-shows. The feeling of pressure on my legs is heavenly!
Would I recommend Ajnamat?
YES! I totally recommend Ajnamat Organic Acupressure Mat since I can’t get enough of mine. I am talking positively about it to my fellow yogis, my students and my followers/ readers.
