How do I use the Spoonk™ mat?
The most recommended way to use Spoonk™ is to lie on your back in bed for 30–40 minutes. However, Spoonk™ can treat any sore muscle areas — back, neck, shoulders, head, hips, abdomen, feet, etc. Do not use the mat against your bones. For best effects, use direct skin contact. You can also use a thin T-shirt if your find the sensation too strong. Be careful when using the mat as the stimulation points are sharp! Apply the mat very slowly against your skin and avoid any sudden movements while on the mat to avoid any skin injuries. Accidentally moving on the mat or rubbing your skin against the mat may cause a skin injury. See How to Use Spoonk for more positions and ideas!
