How to use Spoonk? The most recommended way to use Spoonk™ is to lie on your back in bed for 30–40 minutes. However, Spoonk™ can treat any sore muscle areas — back, neck, shoulders, head, hips, abdomen, feet, etc. Do not use the mat against your bones. For best effects, use direct skin contact. You can also use a thin T-shirt if your find the sensation too strong. Be careful when using the mat as the stimulation points are sharp! Apply the mat very slowly against your skin and avoid any sudden movements while on the mat to avoid any skin injuries. Accidentally moving on the mat or rubbing your skin against the mat may cause a skin injury.
How does it work? Spoonk™ has 6210 acupressure stimulation points that, once pressed against troubled areas of the body, will increase circulation and relax stiff muscles and decrease pain. In the process the body can release endorphins (pleasurable hormones), which induces a feeling of wellness and a positive attitude. Regular relaxation prevents the build up of stress and manifestation of stress related diseases. Please click here to read our terms and conditions.

In the evening before sleeping, 35 – 45 minutes on the Spoonk™ mat will help you fall asleep, sleep deeper, and stimulate the production of beneficial growth hormones. That is the beauty of having Spoonk™ — it is there when YOU need it!

What is the advantage of the hemp fabric? Hemp fibre is one of the strongest and most durable of all of the natural textile fibres. Products made from hemp will outlast their competition by many years. Hemp is an extremely fast growing crop, producing more fibre yield per acre than any other source. Its plants don’t need fertilizer or pesticides, making it even more eco-friendly and anti-bacterial.
The porous nature of the fabric’s fibres allows the hemp to “breathe,” as well as be water absorbent. This results in the fabric being cool and comfortable in warm weather, and naturally warmer in cool weather. The porous nature of the fibres also helps to absorb odours.
What is acupressure? Acupressure is an ancient healing art, originating in India and developed in Japan as Shiatsu massage. Fingers, thumbs, and tools, such as an acupressure mat, are pressed into the body’s reflex areas, also called pressure points. The pressure stimulates the release of blocked energy and increases the circulation in problematic areas. As a result, acupressure relieves muscle tension or pain while rejuvenating and rebalancing the body.
