Massage Mattresses from Futonwerk

The massage mattresses from Futonwerk are mats made of fine
natural materials and partly with a luxurious natural latex core.

Who doesn't like being pampered by a soothing massage that loosens up the muscles and makes the whole body relax? Almost as important as the well trained masseur is a suitable mat being used; a comfortable massage mat that allows you to get into a comfortable position in the first place so that you can enjoy the massage from beginning to end. The structure of the massage mats from Futonwerk make them well suited for this purpose. They are comfortably soft and adjust to the body contours but offer enough support and stability so that the body can remain in the right position during the massage.

The massage mats from Futonwerk are mats made of fine natural materials partly with a luxurious natural latex core. There are several models of this mat available which can also be used as a topper for harder futon mattresses. When the mats are used as a topper on a futon mattress it can help prevent back and neck tensions and also lead to a deeper relaxation during sleep.

Regardless of the purpose they are used for, these mats improve the lying comfort considerably and provide a nice bed climate. The processing of high quality natural products like natural latex, organic cotton, horsehair, coconut fibers and wool guarantee high breathability for healthy sleep and lasting lying comfort.

For a Shiatsu massage, the massage mats can be put straight onto the floor or on top of a lounger as a massage topper. They can also be used as a base for electrical massage mats.

The massage or rather the Shiatsu futons have the advantage that they can be rolled up easily, meaning they can be used for yoga, travelling, meditation or massages. Massage therapists often use such mattresses as a base for Shiatsu - a Japanese pressure massage - because the massage mat keeps the body of the client stable in a specific position while offering enough comfort to allow the person to stay in that position for a longer duration.

The massage mats from Futonwerk are available in different sizes and variations. There are even some futon mattresses specifically for childs and babies, but they make use of a soft wool core rather than a natural latex core. They offer great stability and aren't too soft as to allow especially the babies to stay in a suitable sleeping position. The mats are also available in the variants 'organic' or 'vegan'. The vegan mats use no animal fibers, meaning instead of horsehair they use coconut fibers and wool is replaced by cotton. High quality accessories for the massage mats is also available - of course in the highest quality as usual by Futonwerk. The massage mats include an organic cotton coat. In addition, pillows and duvets as well as bedding made of natural fibers are available.

What is the origin of the term Shiatsu?
Shiatsu comes from the Japanese and means "finger print". Shiatsu is a type of massage in which the ball of the hands and fingers make use of the body weight in order to create pressure on specific body parts, thereby easing pain and improving one's health along with evening out imbalances in the organism. Shiatsu is done on a specific, thin massage mat that is put on the floor. However, the forms of treatment may vary so that for the use at home, massage seats or loungers can be used as well.

There are various different models of massage devices available for shiatsu. However, a massage therapist can feel the tensions in the muscles with their fingers and therefore loosen up those tensions precisely using a shiatsu massage. Because of that, a massage therapist is preferable to an electrical massage mat.
