Anti fatigue gel mats are a bit expensive. Are they worth their price and will they really relieve your aches and pains from standing? Find out in this Wellness Mats review.00000
I love cooking.
I spend about 3-4 hours in the kitchen every day – Mixing, chopping, baking, and washing dishes. But in spite of supportive shoes and lots of stretching, my back pain and sore ankles keep coming back every day.
My best friend has the same problem. Her work requires long periods of standing, and even stretching every hour doesn’t seem to help.
We both heard great things about gel mats, and especially Wellness Mats, but we were a bit surprised to find out that even the little Wellness Mat (or any other brand) costs about 100$.
Are these gel mats worth the high price tag or are they just an over-priced gimmick?
I’ve decided to find out. I bought the small Wellness Mat for my kitchen and here’s my Wellness Mats Review and conclusion.
First – Why Does Standing Cause So Much Pain?
Standing for a long period of time – Whether it’s for cooking, doing loads of laundry or working – Causes stress to your whole body, especially in your feet, joints and lower back.
While standing, your leg muscles are in a constant state of flexion, which reduces blood and oxygen flow throughout your body causing fatigue and pain.
This is even truer for people after knee or back surgeries, new moms who haven’t slept all night yet must cook in the morning and every person that has to stand to make a living.
Our Wellness Mats Review
Wellness Mats are made of 100 percent polyurethane, which makes them guaranteed to lie flat, never delaminate and curl up at the edges, never compress or wear through.
Each mat has a shock-absorbing gel core that cradles your feet providing extra support and cushion.
They are resistant to punctures, tears, abrasions and stains which makes look good as new for years.
After using my Wellness Mat for over 2 months, I can verify that this is true. I also find it very easy to clean – It wipes down nicely and it doesn’t let any water seep under it.
Also, these mats are non-toxic and they are PVC and BPA free. This is important to me.
2. Does it Relieve Back Pain and Sore Muscles?
I felt a difference from the first minute I stood on my mat. It feels great to stand on it, whether you are in your shoes or barefoot (my favorite for cooking…).
For the first time in years I could really enjoy my daily cooking and felt a dramatic relief in my back pain, sore ankles and sore leg-muscles.
Let me say this to you – Cooking in comfort – There’s nothing like it.
My friend followed along and bought one for her standing work. She reported that “it makes a real difference to my creaky, aging hips. I can’t imagine another work day without my new best friend.”
Wellness Mats Review – Conclusion
For me and my friend these mats relatively high price is highly justified. Is paying 100 dollars to cook and do my laundry in comfort and pain-free worth it?
Is it worth it to you? It depends.
If you spend more than an hour standing still, whether in your kitchen, your laundry room or at work – We would definitely say that a Wellness mat is worth every dollar you spend on it.
If you are prone to back pain or sore body, this is a must for you.
As for which brand to choose from, you can find great deals on Amazon right now, just browse around. We really liked the Wellness Mats because of their style and finish, but also for the 7-year warranty.
Since we always like to spread the love, we started buying these mats as birthday gifts for our stay-at-home-mom friends. They love it!
