Have you ever wondered why massage feels so good? With state of the art technology assisted by Dr. Dan Turner, PhD, we ran a neuroelectrophysiology assessment to measure how our body reacts while using The Backmate. The results were stunning!
In just 3 minutes of using the Backmate, there was significant relaxation of the nervous system (aka stress levels), placing the body in a restorative, balanced state. The body became able to appropriately manage its current environment (reduced anxiety), increase circulation and thyroid health, and provide better control to the gastrointestinal tract and vagus nerve.
When looking at our physical health and back pain, it’s best to do so with a long lens. Just like fad diets fail over time, so will a short sighted approach to recovery. Remember, your body is the only source capable of healing injuries. Supercharge the regeneration process in just three minutes. Go ahead, you deserve it.

Protocol: Participant completed a baseline (resting) assessment, then performed 2x 3 minutes of BACKMATE massage. In between each 3 minute massage we performed a neuroelectrophysiology assessment taking 2 minutes.The neuroelectrophysiology assessment consists of 14 electrodes placed on the skin at the regions that correspond with the nerve plexus. Our goal was to determine the effect of BACKMATE on the mind-body connection.We were successfully able to measure the effect of BACKMATE on the communication between the nervous system and organs of the body.
Subject 1: Baseline
Subject 1: After 1st Massage Therapy
Subject 1: After 2nd Massage Therapy
Continued to support a balance of the nervous system by increasing parasympathetic activity but this time sympathetic activity dominated. This revealed suboptimal electrolyte balance, most likely due to over stimulation / stress. For Subject 1, we recommend not performing the 2nd 3min of massage. The 1st 3min is therapeutic enough.
