Would definitely recommendedDate published: 2019-01-17Rated 5 out of 5 by Chuck from This massage mat is everything it promised to be a I enjoy using this product because it lives up to its advertising promisesDate published: 2019-01-15Rated 5 out of 5 by Versha from Sciatica and Neck Pain Got one for my in-laws 2 weeks ago. They are struggling with sciatica and they find it relatively easy to use but so far they haven’t seen any improvements but not surprising if as suspected the nerve is trappped down the leg. However it does help alleviate the knock on back pain for them. I have for the last 3 years had A severe knot in my neck and was thinking about surgery as the disc has worn out Tried the mat one session it completely freed up my neck pain, it came back with a vengeance the next day but has for the last week disappeared so the may has made a massive difference for my neck pain and generally the stretch (on medium) for me is great. Have bought. 2nd one for us. My wife and kids use it and they love it too Everyone is different so no idea if it will work for you but it is worth a try in my view givenDate published: 2019-01-13Rated 5 out of 5 by Islam from Great product I bought this 3 weeks ago and I m happy with this product..Date published: 2019-01-12Rated 5 out of 5 by Summer69 from Great Does exactly what it claims to do.

Hoping to be de everyday once I get rid of my cold!Date published: 2019-01-08Rated 5 out of 5 by PhoenixB from Stretch mat I bought this to help me get back into yoga after being unwell, it's easy to use good quality and has good programs on it, I've used it everyday and really do feel the difference in my back, hips, neck and shoulders.

She had a sore back and she says it's much better now.Date published: 2018-12-28Rated 5 out of 5 by Al1313 from Great product I bought this 2 weeks ago and used it every day, it is a fantastic product and really does stretch you but not in an uncomfortable way. I have tried all 4 programs and if I position my body higher or lower on the mat then it feels different again and stretches different areas. It is easy to fold and put away and get back out when I use itDate published: 2018-12-19Rated 5 out of 5 by Nazrul from Excellent for the back I have intermittent back pain, and this product is amazing, rally helps to relax the muscles and works from the shoulders to the low back. I found that its best to start with the low intensity and then work your way up to increasing intensities. Also best not to use it in a full stomach.Date published: 2018-12-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Vicky123 from Fantastic I work in care and suffer with sciatica. This mat is the best thing I’ve ever bought. Stretches out my back after each shift I work and my twinges from sciatica are now almost none existent. Would massively encourage anyone who suffers with sciatica to invest in this brilliant product.Date published: 2018-12-14Rated 5 out of 5 by Belinda from CFS and spine curvature I have 4 spine curvatures and a fatigue syndrome which makes yoga too hard for me. So, the varied intensity settings and programme on this mat are really good and have helped me to start gently. My chiropractor reviewed the mat and approved. Hoping this is going to help me strengthen my back between treatments. Very pleased with thisDate published: 2018-12-05Rated 5 out of 5 by Binankii from Brilliant! I absolutely love this mat, I have been using it every day for a week now and can’t get enough. I find it very relaxing and easy to use, the results are not instant but I can feel it really stretcing my back every time I use it. Well worth the money spent.Date published: 2018-11-30Rated 5 out of 5 by Claire Joffe from I love it! This is the best money I have spent for some time. I have used the mat every day since it arrived a week ago. I feel better for doing the stretches and have even noticed improvements in my posture already. The health benefits are significant - increased flexibility, focussed breathing and relaxation whilst using the mat, general feeling of wellbeing. I haven't missed a day on the mat. I am now going to buy one for my sister.

Very easy to assemble and get on with anywhere, anytime. Feels like a deep tissue massage at the same time. Need to give it a few more weeks to fully scope out the claims of this mat. Would have liked more information on which muscles are involved in the workout as I am very tight in hip flexors and hamstrings. Well made concept. A bit on the pricey side but if if does the job and gives me flexibility lost due to a desk job then price wise it is invaluable. Loving it so far. Good guarantee too.Date published: 2018-01-24Rated 5 out of 5 by noknics from this mat works wonders for your back great for people with back problemsDate published: 2018-01-23

Is this suitable for someone with C5 paraplegia ? If so can this mat be used on a bed and not a hard floor as it would be ideal to assist user onto mat whilst in bed if the mattress is firm as trying to assist user onto a floor would be difficult. ThanksDear AIS user, In regards to the medical condition we would always recommend contacting your medical professional as they have all the information for the case and can make an informed decision. Yes you can use this on a bed however it will be more effective when used on a solid surface as the matt uses air to expand and contract. When placed on a hard surface the air pressure can only move in an upwards direction which provides the full effect. Kind Regards, HoMedics Customer Services.Date published: 2018-12-20
