Is the acupressure pranamat safe for children and elderly? The skin of children and elderly people is more sensitive, so we suggest using a special linen cloth when using the acupressure pranamat.

Is the acupressure pranamat good for people suffering from depression syndrom? Absolutely, yes! The release of endorphins and oxytocin has a calming und uplifting effect. Oxytocin is our peace and calm hormone, and our body’s own “happy pill”. It is secreted during breast-feeding, caresses, massage, meditation or other enjoyable activities. When levels of oxytocin rise, the levels of stress hormones in the body fall. Damaged or worn tissues are repaired and new cells grow where they are needed. Worries and anxieties shall decrease as a result of oxytocin level increase!
