It involves application of manual pressure on specific points.

Acupressure mat helps in the following:
In mid19th century Russian Celebrity Ivan Turgenev in his novel “Eve” described the application of a bed of needles during surgery to control patient’s blood pressure and keep him relaxed.
Tanya Zilberter, Ph.D. the author of ‘Reflexo-Therapy From Kutzenov Applicator to Shakti Ma’ believed that acupuncture was the theory behind that procedure.
Zilberter’s research reveals that Kuznetsov, a Russian music teacher invented the first acupressure mat. Kutzentsove suffered from a severely impaired peripheral circulation and muscle spasm to the extent he faced difficulty in moving his limbs. He found his cure in acupuncture, but the cost of the treatment was beyond what he could afford. In desperation, he tried to perform acupuncture on himself, but failed because reaching all the pressure points on his back was not an easy feat.
His misery and desperation brought him to a novel idea. He prepared a sheet of tire rubber with embedded office pins each quarter of an inch apart and lied down on it adjusting his posture until he attained the right pressure points. He called his new invention ‘Iplikator’ and filed for a patent in 1979. Since this invention thousands of clinics in Russia replicated the Iplikator’ and it was featured in famous magazine ‘Invention and Rationalization in 1981. Later it was approved by department of health in Russia.
Modern Day Acupressure Yoga Mat:
Later Sweden took the lead and invented the modern day acupressure yoga mats. In August 2009 a Swedish manufacturer organized a mass meeting of 3000 users sitting or lying on acupressure yoga mats forming a sunbeam singing mantras in a park in Stockholm. The event resulted in an entry in the Guinness Book of Records and was also reported in The New York Times.
