How it Works

How does the Chi-Mat work?

The best thing about the Chi-Mat is that it is easy to use and requires very little effort. You simply lie on the mat and let it do all the work.  Dr. Green's Chi-Mat has 250 flowers with 32 spikes on each flower, equating to 8000 individual acupressure points.

These small but powerful pressure points on The Chi-mat use the concept of acupressure to achieve the following:

  1. Ease muscle pain by stimulating the release of endorphins in the body, which will decrease the body's awareness of pain (also known as analgesia)
  2. Decrease muscle tension and tightness by stimulating the nerves to relax the muscles
  3. Promotes an increase in blood circulation to the affected area, which is a natural and therapeutic form of heat

Dr. Green's Chi-Mat is designed to relax and refresh your body and ease your muscle pain, all without medication.


How long do you lie on it?

  • The recommended goal is 20-40 minutes/day, but you can receive benefits for lesser amounts of time and frequency.


When should you use it?

  • It can be used everyday; I recommend using it at night, but it can be used at anytime.


Does it hurt?

  • The beginner protocol is pain-free and comfortable since it involves wearing a thin shirt 
  • As you progress to using the chi-mat more regularly, the protocol involves going bare-skin… this can feel uncomfortable for the first 3-5 minutes or so, but it subsides the longer you lie on the mat
