FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IT IS THE MAVENTMAT USED FOR?
HOW DO I KNOW IT WORKS?
Acupressure is a long-standing and well trusted practice from Eastern roots. While this practice is reasonably new to the Western world, it dates back 2,000 years and is now adopted by reputable practitioners around the world.
The Maven Mat mimics this ancient technique to reproduce the benefits and make the practice of acupressure more widely available. If you’d like to learn more about how The Shakti Mat has helped others experience the benefits of acupressure
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
When using The Maven Mat, thousands of spikes apply pressure to your skin and muscles. If you’re like most, this experience can be uncomfortable and prickly at first. This will last a couple of minutes before a tingly sensation occurs, similar to deep heat, as the area warms. Discomfort then evaporates, muscles start to feel relaxed, and tension eases. This process can lead to feelings of bliss, and a state of such deep relaxation you may even nod off to sleep.
As humans, we all have different sensitivity to pain. For some people adjusting to The Maven Mat can take just a couple of minutes, while for others it can take a couple of sessions. Over time, you will adjust to the initial discomfort, as your body learns to respond more readily to the pressure applied by the Mat.
For most, the experience can be uncomfortable at first. Often the body goes into 'resistance mode' due to any stress you may be carrying physically or mentally. After around 3-5 minutes, however, discomfort tends to transition into relaxation. Everyone is different. So while your friend might take to The Maven Mat straight away, you may take a couple of weeks to adjust. Our top two tips for newcomers are...
Tip #1: Relax and give in. The more you resist the spikes and tense yourbody, the more it will hurt. Use your breath to calm the body, or try distracting yourself with a book, podcast, or TV show.
Tip #2: Be patient with yourself. Don't expect to be a perfect Shakti-er straight away. Rise to the challenge knowing that with time and commitment you will soon love the experience and won't want to miss a session.

HOW DO YOU USE IT?
The Maven Mat works on contact. When you place the Mat against your body, the spikes exert pressure on your skin. For your first session, start by applying the Mat to your neck, shoulders, back, or legs, as these areas are the most commonly affected by tension. However, any area of your body can be targeted. There is no limit for time or frequency of a Maven session, and it is completely normal to fall asleep on the Mat.
We recommend you aim for 15 minutes or more to experience the full acupressure effect. For your first few sessions, you can wear a thin t-shirt, or place a pillow case over your Mat while your body adjusts. However, bare skin is best to experience the full Maven sensation. Use your Mat on any surface. Common places include in bed, on the floor, on a seat, or on a couch. Softer surfaces provide more 'give', so this is a great place to start.
