Three years ago, while I was on vacation with my wife at my mother-in-law's house in the south-east of France, I discovered that she had bought two rather surprising pieces of equipment. To tell you the truth, my mother-in-law suffers a lot from back pain, among other things because of a herniated disc. Having done some research on the Internet, she ordered a field of flowers and a Nubax.
As I am not the last of the curious, as you know, I was interested in this material. All the more so since I myself suffered from a herniated H5-S1 disc. You will discover the undeniable interest of the Nubax, a spinal decompression device that I had the opportunity to test, in another article.
But today, you will discover the interest of this strange carpet, so effective for relieve back pain.
What is the flower field?
Under this pretty name hides an incredible invention. In fact, it is what we can call an acupressure mat.
It looks like a small carpet made of coco and linen fiber, covered with small pointed flowers made of HIPS ecoplastic.
What is acupressure and what are its benefits?
Acupressure is an age-old technique which, by applying pressure to certain parts of the body, can reduce anxiety, relieve certain pathologies, reduce leg or back pain and much more.
In fact, it all depends on the area of the body on which you use it.
In this picture, you can see the shape of the quills on the little flowers. It doesn't hurt. Some people feel a little discomfort for the first minute. But this discomfort is quickly replaced by a soft warm feeling.
Obviously it is necessary to use it in moderation and directly on the skin (because if there are clothes the effect is diminished), often in sessions of 15 to 45 minutes. Some people take advantage of it to take a nap on it.
Recognized efficiency and durability
This acupressure mat has proven itself over a long period of time and has been used successfully by over 350,000 people. In addition, it has been clinically tested and has received several certifications. Its life span is impressive, as it can be used for many years. It is also sold with a 2 year warranty.
Plus, you can try it risk-free since you get a 30-day money back guarantee if the flowerbed doesn't work for you for any reason.
So why not take the plunge and experience the full effectiveness of this incredible product?
How to limit back pain
Back pain affects at least 80% of the population at one time or another. But it can be significantly reduced by taking preventive measures.
If you have read many of my articles, then you know that I suffer from a hyperlordosis and osteoarthritis in my spine for a long time. My osteopath once said to me, "Good thing you're working out because you really have a problem back!"
And that's the best advice I can give you about your back. Of course a mat like the flower field can give you relief, but you have to go further. Exercise your back and strengthen all the muscles that participate in your posture. This includes the entire abdominal girdle (see the section on Strength Training).
Also make appropriate exercises if you have scoliosis taking into account the recommendations of the specialist who follows you. Don't assume that nothing can be done, because it rarely is 😉
