First and foremost, what is acupressure? In many ways it's similar to acupuncture, which is used to treat chronic pain issues and a wide variety of other conditions by manipulating specific "acupoints" in the body to alleviate pain. Where acupuncture uses needles, acupressure utilizes "pressure" on these key points throughout the body, reports WebMD.
Acupressure mats and pillows were created to deliver targeted therapy to help treat neck, back and foot pain, fibromyalgia pain, stress relief, improved circulation and more. But traveling with something the size of a yoga mat can be limiting for some people, and while they are great for at-home use, those who need to take their acupressure therapy on the road now have a solution.
The Kanjō Travel Acupressure Set includes a compact acupressure mat, acupressure pillow and a carrying case that folds down to find into any carry-on or backpack. Both the mat and pillow have plastic stimulators over the surface of each piece that are designed to target aches, pains and spasms.
The Kanjo acupressure mats have already been a huge hit with our customers, and this new travel pack can help you bring your drug-free pain relief therapy on the road. If acupressure has worked for you or has the possibility to give your spouse/qualified dependent a new way to treat pain, it's a smart FSA-eligible buy for any time of the year.
