This past May I celebrated 12 years of being in remission from stage 2 nasopharyngeal carcinoma.  Even though it is great to be able to celebrate this milestone from a rare form of cancer, usually only in 2% of the US population, I am reminded daily of the high dose chemo and 40 rounds of radiation I went through to rid my body of this cancer.  While I can handle the fatigue that I still deal with from the chemo and occasional chemo brain fog, I wake and go to bed each night dealing with pain in my neck and shoulders due to muscle atrophy and damage caused by the radiation I had.  Over the years, I have tried countless therapies and medications to help ease the pain and discomfort I feel daily, but nothing seemed to work.  Botox shots ran me over $2000 each, and to notice any difference I would need to do at least two 1-hr. massage appts. a week, which ran me $80 each.  So, you can see this adds up quickly, and usually these would leave with me only temporary relief.  When I looked at how much I was spending for these treatments, I realized it wasn't worth it.  But, I also didn't want to be in so much pain, so I continued to look for ways to help relieve my pain.  At the end of last year, a fellow cancer survivor recommended that I try acupressure.  After looking online, I found the Dosha Mat, and flagged it as something to try.  I didn't want to go and buy it as at the time I was so busy with the girls' homeschool at home and their extracurricular classes and programs. We were always on the go, and I was driving up to 2 to 2.5 hrs a day back and forth.  I knew that if I bought the Dosha Mat, I probably wouldn't have time to really try it, and noticed the benefits of this acupressure mat.

But, like so many people, Covid happened and our "normal" day to day schedule went out the window and we found ourselves home 24/7.  I reached out to the folks at Dosha Mat to see about reviewing their mat and including it in my holiday gift guide, as I knew that it would be a unique product to feature, and one that my readers would benefit from and want to know about -- as a personal gift for themselves, or to gift family or friends who deal with daily pain, like myself.  

Why use an acupressure mat?:

"Acupressure is an ancient Ayurvedic treatment which is similar to massage, acupuncture, and reflexology. Acupressure works by massaging and stimulating key points on the body to promote deep relaxation and healing. 

Acupressure mats benefit the body by relieving tension, soreness and pain in the back, head, neck, shoulders, hips, feet, and other parts of the body.

Our acupressure mats are unparalleled in quality and beauty and are 100% eco-friendly. Each mat is carefully handmade using the highest-quality, hypoallergenic natural linen. 

Each mat also contains a removable cushion made of 100% natural coconut fibre. Our mats also feature more than 4,500 high-quality acupressure points in the beautiful shape of lotus flowers. These unique acupressure points are made of toxic-free surgical plastic and have been ergonomically engineered to have the greatest relaxation and healing effects. The result is a premium-quality acupressure mat that is gorgeous, environmentally-friendly, and will substantially improve the quality of your life.

Acupressure mats are also used to help enter a deep state of relaxation, enjoy deeper and more restful sleep, reduce stress, eliminate headaches, increase circulation, positively affect the nervous and immune systems, help muscles recover faster after exercise, and increase energy levels. Acupressure mats work by causing the body to release endorphins, oxytocin, and other “feel good” hormones which relax the mind and help the body naturally heal itself."


I received the Dosha Mat and read through the instructions online on how to use the mat. They recommend that you use the mat for about 15-20 minutes at time. You can wear clothes if you are new to acupressure, which I was. Then, eventually, you could lay bare skin on the mat. I haven't gone bare skin yet, but my husband has, and he has said that within minutes his body is flooded with warmth -- which I also feel while clothes laying on the mat -- before his body fully relaxed.  I couldn't believe how relaxed this acupressure mat makes your body feel. Right after the rush of warmth comes over your body, it is like your stress just melts away, and you slowly relax.  

The Dosha Mat really does an amazing job at massaging and stimulating key points on the promote to help relax and heal any aches and pains you may be experiencing.  Even though I have dealt with the pain and stiffness in my neck and shoulders due to radiation damage all these years, it wasn't until I started using the Dosha Mat daily, that I noticed a change.  Usually I would say that my pain level was an 8 or 9 depending on the day and weather.  If it was wet or rainy, it would be higher as my arthritis would also kick in.  But, after introducing the acupressure mat into my daily schedule -- I have been using it first thing in the AM after waking, and then again in the evening, right before I go to bed -- I found myself reaching deep relaxation and my pain subsiding, making it more manageable throughout the day.  Yes, I still had pain and tightness, but, it wasn't as bad as I have dealt with. I can finally say that my pain is about a 5, which is a huge improvement, especially after trying expensive therapies and prescription and OTC medications over the past 12 years.  With just the investment of the Dosha Mat, which is only $94.50, you can get full body relaxation at home, any time of the day, which is truly amazing!

I have been using the Dosha Mat for over a month now, and each day I use it, I find my body is more relaxed after, and that my pain from my previous cancer treatment, as well as my rheumatoid arthritis seems to melt away and is more manageable.  This is like a miracle mat, and one that I couldn't live without!  Now, whenever friends and family complain about aches and pains they are experiencing, I tell them they need a Dosha Mat. I then explain what it is and all the benefits of acupressure, before sharing the url so they can get their own acupressure mat. And, with the holidays fast approaching, wouldn't it be nice to gift yourself or someone you love with an acupressure mat, and watch your aches and pains melt away as you lay on this mat, and experience deep relaxation and healing?  You know you deserve it, especially with all the stress that the holidays brings.  Just imagine laying on the Dosha Mat for 15-20 minutes during the day or at the end of the day, and feeling the warmth come over your body, as your body relaxes. It is a feeling that you really must experience..and, now you can in the comfort of your own home whenever you want, when you get a Dosha Mat.  So, what are you waiting for? Head on over to and order an acupressure mat today. And, right now you can save 20% off a mat with their limited time Black Friday offer.
