The Shakti Mat


We were so excited to try these acupressure mats when they arrived. Every Shakti session provides an extremely unique experience - but the no-pain no-gain philosophy really applies. Once users get over the initial 5-minute' hump', they are left with a unique feeling of warmth, calm, and transformation. Overcoming the initial spikey challenge really gives you a sense of achievement and can do a lot for physical and mental health.


Additionally, With each Shakti purchase, the customer gets to choose where 10% of the profits are donated. They choose from 4 charities which are based on Givewell's assessment of most effective charities, as well as local initiatives in India (where Shakti Mats are all handmade with organic cotton).
