The Pranamat ECO can be used for back, neck or/and shoulder pain, tension pain and headaches, relief from stress and menstrual cramping. It can even help increase energy, help you fall asleep faster, cellulite reduction and sciatica.

Upon opening the box there is a great user guide along with the mat, it gives suggestions for how to use the mat and for how long. It suggests using the mat up to 20 minutes for stimulation and energy and 20 to 40 minutes for relaxation for tension relief and falling asleep. I would recommend working up to the 20 minutes if you are sensitive to the pressure. Some may be able to easily lay on the mat for 20 minutes whereas another may only be able to do it for 5 minutes. Pay attention you what you body is telling you. You do you.  The guide comes in four different languages Latvian, Russian, French and English

My Pranamat ECO {LAVENDER & LAVENDER $135}

The first time that I used my Pranamat ECO, I laid it down on the couch and I put a pillow under my head, as soon as I laid on it I was happy I was wearing a T-shirt and not a tank top because the lotus flowers are very prickly and the skin to mat contact was a little too much the first time  {I would definitely recommend  wearing at least a light T-shirt the first time you use it} Don’t worry you get used to it quite quickly! I can easily now lay on it with my bare skin and fall asleep!

I suffer from a lot of tension pain in my neck and upper shoulders as well as tension headaches and let me tell you the Pranamat has been amazing!

Recently, I had a really bad tension headache from the back of my skull down my entire neck and tops of my shoulders. I grabbed my Pranamat ECO and I rolled it so it pressed on all the areas with tension. I’m not really sure how long I had been laying on it when I realized I no longer had a headache and I was feeling really good. That was pretty much the moment that I was sold! It’s helped with serious pain in my low back due to an over done workout, seriously within 10 minutes I had zero pain…it didn’t come back.

prana2I stand on the mat while washing dishes, brushing my teeth and putting on makeup {this really helps with energy}.

I lay on it when I have bad cramps and the pain disappears after about 5 or so minutes.

I used to help the degenerative/buldging disks in my neck/uppr back {AMAZING relief!}

My husband and have both used it on long car trips! It has been amazing at relieving that back ache you can get after being in the car for hours!

The Pranamat ECO is also great for sore muscles after an intense workout, by simply laying the sore area on the mat you almost feel relief immediately!

I use it every single afternoon when the kids go take naps and have quite time. I put it on the couch and put pillows under my head and knees and relax! Couple this with some lavender essential oil in a defuser…prefect! Since getting this mat I have noticed a huge change in my pain, stress and relaxation!

And my kids LOVE it!

The Pranamat ECO can be used when practicing yoga, however try to stick to a restorative practice. I have personally loved this mat for legs up the wall…talk about relaxation!

I completely love this mat and highly recommend it if you suffer from anything I mentioned above! My 72 yo mother is so impressed by it that she has ordered one of her own to help with her fibromyalgia and arthritis, just in the times she has used it a my house she has had so much relief!

Don’t let the $135 price tag bother you…this is worth EVERY SINGLE penny!

I want to extend a HUGE Thank You to Pranamat ECO and Dmitry for sending me this amazing mat!!

*Although Pranamat ECO did send me these products to review I was not compensated  for this post.  All thoughts + opinions are 100% my own.
