Pranamat ECO Massage Mat & PranaPillow for #Migraine Relief


Whenever I am down during a migraine attack or when my lower back pain is an issue, I usually wish I could go get a massage.  In the past, I used to have a massage membership and those monthly massages really helped to ease a lot of my chronic migraine and back pain.  So many areas in my neck, forehead, shoulders, and back would become so sore and stiff that only a good cranial sacral or deep tissue massage could help relieve it.

Applying the right amount of pressure to those tender points would make a world of difference for me.  Massage therapy was a very essential self-care tool. Unfortunately, I had to cancel my membership to cut down on expenses, so I had to rely on using muscle relaxing creams and moist heat to loosen up those tight muscles.  If there was a way I could simulate a good massage at home I would be eager to try it.  That's when Pranamat ECO Massage Mat and Pillow came into my life.

What is Pranamat ECO?

"Pranamat ECO is a therapeutic massage mat, that activates all areas of your body, including back, neck, shoulders, head, hips, abdomen, and feet, eliminating minor muscle aches and pains and tension." (www.pranamat.com) When you are in the market for good quality therapeutic medical device, look no further than Pranamat ECO.

Benefits for Migraine Relief

When a migraine attack hits me, I often get pain in the occipital region of my head.  I often have to apply pressure to both sides in order to get some relief from the pain and pressure felt there.  Using the PranaPillow provides amazing relief that I cannot get with just manual finger pressure alone.  The lotus-shaped massage stimulators provides the exact amount of pressure to the occipital and upper shoulder areas.

Every time I use the PranaPillow during a migraine attack, I get extended relief that I normally do not get with using just medication alone.  Oftentimes, I will fall asleep while using it because it relaxes me so much.  Not only do I experience less pain, I also sleep better.  I get the same results as if I were going to get a massage, which is awesome!

There are times when I am in a middle of a migraine attack and the pain is focused around my eyes and forehead only.  I will use the PranaPillow and as soon as I lay on it I feel the pain and soreness in my occipital area that wasn't there before.  Sometimes the source of the migraine pain isn't clear until I use my PranaPillow.  Being able to target the right areas helps to relieve the pain a lot easier and quicker.

The massage mat is helpful in not only relieving lower back pain, but the tension in my neck and shoulders that often comes with a migraine attack.  Using the mat in conjunction with the pillow assures that I will have a more targeted form of relief.  The added benefits include feeling more relaxed and having a more natural form of sleep.

How to Buy

I highly recommend both the Pranamat ECO Therapeutic Massage Mat and PranaPillow to anyone who has chronic pain and likes to use a more holistic approach to treating their pain.  They are both very high quality products that are well worth the investment.  I have experienced a surprising amount of relief from these two products.  I will often turn to them first before taking medication to try and alleviate the pain naturally.  If I catch the migraine early enough, I am successful in stopping it or at least lowering the pain to a significantly lower number so that I can function.
