How many spikes on the acupressure mat?

So a simple question, how many spikes on the mat? The Anti-Aging Acupressure Mat contains exactly 6534 food grade plastic tips.

Why is the number of spikes on the acupressure mat important? It’s not so much the number of spikes on the mat that matters as the distance between the spikes. The research on the acupressure mats was done on mats with a specific distance between the spikes. If the distance on a nail bed is too different from this distance, you cannot be sure that the same results will be obtained from using the acupuncture mat.

As many of you may have read, extensive research into acupressure mats was conducted in communist Russia, leading to their widespread availability in pharmacies as part of government programs. With the collapse of the Soviet Union, this research disappeared and the only available research now widely available was done by Tanya Zilberter and Jim Roman in North Carolina. Tanya had witnessed the popularity of the mats in the USSR and wanted to scientifically prove their effectiveness in her new country.

The results of their conducted study showed that out of 126 patients, 98% reported pain relief, 96% improved relaxation, 94% improved sleep quality and 81% increased energy. (1).

It is important to repeat this spacing to ensure similar results can be achieved with other products such as the Anti-Aging Acupressure Mat.

It’s also important to check what the spikes are made of when looking at the plastic spikes on an acupressure mat. Anti-Aging only uses food grade plastic and not cheap ABS plastic and you can read our blog at ‘Acupressure mats and food grade plastic‘ Here.

It is also important to check how the spikes are attached to the mats. Cheaper mats sometimes use toxic adhesives that liquefy and can be absorbed by the skin when exposed to heat and human sweat.

The Anti-Aging acupressure mat won the prestigious comparison award as the best acupressure mat in both 2016 and 2017.
