i’m addicted to plastic. not bottled water, or credit cards, or action figures. no, i love each of the 6,210 plastic disks glued to a cotton pillowcase stuffed with a rectangular slab of foam.
i’m talking about the stress-relieving spoonk acupressure mat. their website states “the most recommended way to use Spoonk™ is to lay on your back in bed for 30–40 minutes.”
but in case a product suggesting you lie down isn’t enough, the mat is good for your health. resting on its stimulation points increases circulation, releases endorphins, and shifts blocked energy. it also soothes muscle tension and soreness.
trust me, it feels awesome and comfortable, although i understand any doubts. i use mine nightly before bed. truth be told, i already sleep like it’s my job, but now i begin doing so even faster. sometimes i pass out while still lying on the mat.
you can also lie facedown, roll it under your neck, stand, or rest your feet on it while seated. if any option feels too intense, slip a t-shirt between your skin and the mat.
i trust the “if you don’t use it, you lose it” theory about our bodies. cells, organs, and muscles get into trouble when left unsupervised. prodding them with spikes keeps them engaged.
everyone should own one since we’re all stressed and eventually wind up in bed.
i love the spoonk’s overall simplicity. you just put your body down and gravity does the rest. there are no gears or batteries or weird replacement parts. all the plastic pieces are still snug on mine after more than a year of daily use. since it’s light and barely takes up any space, storage and transport are easy.
go check out the spoonk mat. i’ll be here, chilling on a few thousand plastic spikes.
