Everyday stressors could be alleviated by everyday relaxation, which the Vila Mat promotes. This pad provides an at-home Swedish acupressure treatment that is convenient, rejuvenating and easy to use. It can help reduce physical pain, increase circulation and boost mental energy.

Created by snowboarders Justin Steinhardt and Hjalmar Hedman, the Vila Mat is covered with crown-shaped plastic spikes that mimic the acupuncture process. When used, the Vila Mat produces an almost immediate warm sensation throughout the body that helps to relax muscles. While it works its magic, the Vila Mat also encourages people to take a second for themselves instead of busying themselves with more stressful activities.

The Vila Mat is also much more affordable than weekly massages.
