Does It Work?

I must say that I’m really impressed with the effects from the use of the Yantra Mat and I’m not somebody easily impressed nor do I find myself effected by the placebo effect. Having my body subjected to all those sharp points at the same time under my body weight, the effect incredibly effective. It is very spiky!
