Try to choose a place where you will not be disturbed. Put the Pranamat on your bed or floor. Since many people tend to lose track of time and fall asleep while lying on Pranamat, you may wish to set an alarm just before starting. Remember – the first 5 to 20 minutes Pranamat acts as an energizer, and after 25 minutes it acts as a relaxant. For stress relief, pain killing or other specific usage please look at our choice of programs. Our advice is that you lie on Pranamat approximately 30-40 minutes. But if you feel like laying on Pranamat longer or even to sleep on it – it is safe. Daily usage of Pranamat is strongly recommended for rapid health results.
The most common position is to lie on your back on the Pranamat. The nerves branch out from the back to the rest of the body, which means that a back treatment affects the whole body. However, the mat can be used on specific areas of the body. If the room is cool, you may also wish to place a blanket nearby so you can easily cover yourself. Lie down slowly and carefully, leaning on your arms for temporary support. Relax! Try not to move around. Sit back up and lie down again if you wish to alter your position.
You might experience some discomfort during the first moments due to the new sensation. However, any discomfort will subside after 2-4 minutes. The feeling will shift to a warm sensation with light pressure. After using Pranamat a few times, you will be longing to come back home from work and lie down on it, as it is such a relief after a stressful day!
When your alarm sounds or you wish to get up, sit up by reversing your actions when lying down. You may feel many new sensations after waking up. This shows effective local blood flow increase, but will gradually subside. Some people even consider it very uncomfortable at first. That’s OK. It means the Pranamat is doing its job. This is exactly how it works! You will feel the discomfort gradually decreasing in one to four minutes. Remember: it’s worth it!
The first time you lie on the mat you may want to use a special cloth to soften the pressure of the nails. We experience pressure differently depending on the shape and weight of our body. Using Pranamat should feel nicely painful, but not too painful. The lotuses on the mat have rounded tips and cannot harm you if you are using it properly. The main rule of lying on the mat is applying the weight of the body evenly over the whole surface of the mat. You can choose to use it with or without a special linen cloth on the top of the lotuses (see instructions here).
You can use Pranamat 4-5 days a week or, in cases of pain or curing a disease, it can be used for 21 days straight and then allowing your body to rest for 1 week followed by usage 2-4 times a week. Your body needs some rest to avoid addiction. Using Pranamat is like a massage; you do not use it every day.
Pranamat works on your body in many ways, and all you have to do is lie down and relax. As soon as the short period of adjustment passes, you forget about the mat. It can be an ideal time to spend with yourself.
In spite of the fact that our model is laying on Pranamat with clothes on, we strongly and sincerely recommend you to lay on it with no any clothes on – it will give you more healthcare efficiency.
