To use the hälsa mat, place on a flat surface and carefully lie down with your back on the mat and your knees in an elevated position. Breathe deeply, relax and distribute your weight evenly across the mat. You may experience discomfort for a few minutes, but this will subside.
For best results, use the mat against your bare skin. First time users may experience higher levels of discomfort. In the early stages of using the hälsa mat, you may place a thin sheet of cotton or a t-shirt between your body and the mat to reduce discomfort. As you become used to the sensation, you will be able to remove the cloth layer.
To use the hälsa pillow, lay on a flat surface and carefully lie down with the back of your head and neck against the pillow. Like the mat, you can lie down with your bare skin directly on the pillow or with a thin cloth layer in between to soften the sensitivity of the spikes. If you use your pillow regularly, you will become more used to it and be able to remove the cloth layer.
