Also known as a Shakti mat, this is one of the most relaxing healing aids that we use at Peak Fitness.
This modern bed of nails stimulates many acupressure points. In the 1980's Russian studies showed consistent pain relief for complicated fractures and concussions, reduction in surgical pain, reduced joint pain, improved respiratory function, and all with no side effects.
An American study of 200 users 98% reported pain relief, 96% reported relaxation, 94% reported improvement in the quality of sleep, and 81% reported an increase in energy level.
We commonly use these mats for relaxation work and also to improve circulation and awareness of different areas of the body.

And they’re easy to incorporate into myriad exercises, helping you utilize lateral movements (which can combat injury and overuse), stabilization work (necessary for proper posture, form, and bulletproofing your body), and instantly make a workout more effective.

WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO USE MY BLACKROLL® POSTURE?
Initially, the best way to use your POSTURE is for a short time, for about an hour at a time, since untrained muscles can easily become strained and. (If you loosen your POSTURE, you can wear it longer.) The frequency of use of POSTURE (stronger extension and longer periods with your POSTURE) can be increased over time once the muscles are in better shape and good posture becomes more natural even when not wearing POSTURE. Once your body has achieved good posture without help, you can reduce the use of POSTURE (more gentle extension and shorter periods wearing your POSTURE).
HOW TIGHTLY SHOULD I ADJUST MY POSTURE?
Your POSTURE should be adjusted to the point that pleasant stretching reminds you of your posture, but without stressing your muscles to the point of discomfort or pain. For short periods of time, you can also adjust your POSTURE to tighter positions.
HOW DO I WASH MY POSTURE?
POSTURE can be washed with like colors in the washing machine at 40 degrees Celsius.
HOW IS POSTURE'S QUALITY GUARANTEED?
Chiropractors, physical therapists, and athletes collaborated on the development and function of POSTURE. When used correctly (in intervals), POSTURE is good for your health. It exerts gentle pressure to guide your shoulders to the correct position instead of relaxing the muscles. This allows you to train both your posture musculature and muscle memory, getting assistances in finding the right posture. Muscle memory helps the body return to a healthy posture on its own more easily.
WHEN SHOULD I NOT USE POSTURE?
If you have back or neck pain, ask your doctor of physical therapist before using POSTURE. Children under 12 years of age should not use POSTURE.
