The Relax Mat®
Patent Number 5899868

Position 
The Relax Mat® gives you more control in pressing out tight spots as marked on the muscle diagram on the previous page. Some do this technique by laying down with a hand held under the Relax Mat® or the Relax Mat® over a firm pillow or a towel (rolled up bath towel). Do whatever works well for you and your body make-up. You'll know when you have it right because it will feel good.

Press 
You will use only one knob at a time. The higher or the lower knob can be used. Press along the occipital "as marked" or into the upper shoulder on the mat adding 2-3 lbs of pressure, hold for 7 seconds. Some clients say they can feel the tightness melt away.

Stretch 
 Do your favorite stretches, provided by your health care professional.

Aquatherapy 
This technique can also be used in aqua therapy. Lay back in comfortably warm water. Lay back against the compression tool and press into the marked areas on the diagram. You can use it with our without oil. Simply place your hand under one of the knobs and press it into these areas. Whatever works well for you.
