Ways to reduce backache
Wednesday, June 24, 2015 | 3:31 AM | 0 comments

Working at your desk for many hours can create a build-up of stress on your back and affect your mood for the entire day.


The causes of backaches are as follows:
- Bad posture, not only in the office but even when driving.
- Too heavy bags
- Very soft mattresses that have been used for many years

Do you want to know how to reduce backaches? 

Read on to find out!


Choosing the right back support cushion with the right material is also important. Here at The Tatami Shop, we provide not only family bonding spaces, but also back cushions to create a right posture. 

Below are some Tatami cushions which are suitable in giving a good back support.


1. Lumbar Cushion

The lumbar cushion fills up the gap behind your lumbar area, giving you the right support for your back. 
When you lean against it, it feels like as if there is a pair of hands supporting your back. 

Handcrafted with Igusa rushes*, the Tatami lumbar cushion makes a whopping difference to the user's comfort as body heat is able to ventilate through the natural material.

* Igusa: Japanese water rush reed.



2. Neck/Ankle Roll

The Tatami Neck/Ankle Roll can be used to elevate your legs when sleeping to help improve blood circulation. 
The Neckroll also helps to stretch the muscles if your neck is aching after sitting for too long.

The plus point is that there are many different fabric colours for you to choose from!



3. Chaperon

The Tatami Chaperon Cushion comes in a compact size that not only fits into most office chairs but it is of the right size to support your mid and lower back perfectly. 
It fits to the curve of your back and encourages you to sit in a relaxed and upright posture. 

The inner foam filling provides a small springy effect to help you get off your seat easily after many hours of sitting. 

The natural grassy fragrance that is distinctive of Igusa is also believed to be calming and refreshing.

Users are encouraged to take a break from their work every once in a while to engage in back and neck stretching exercises as advised by physiotherapists.

Do not ignore the pain, reduce it.

History of Tatami
“We are not makers of history, we are made by history”
 “History never repeats itself”

Tatami has been around for almost 2000 years in history, and was made specially for the Royalties. It was considered as a luxury product at that time but after that any class of the society use it. 

Tatami became a common usage in the 18th and 19th century. 

Even up till now, people still sleep on hard traditional Tatami mats with a layer of Shiki futon. 



Story of harvesting Igusa specially for us… (It’s reaaaally a tough process!) 
 “Difficulty is the excuse history never accepts”

Ever tried reaping crops? It’s not an easy job!

During the harvesting period, farmers wake up early everyday to tend to the crops. Plant, water, plant, water.

Once the Igusa are fully grown, they have to dry them before selecting only the best rush to weave. This is done by making sure each rush does not have stains on them. Not only that, the length of each Igusa strand has to be more or less similar.

Everything is handmade with precision and intricacy. This whole effortful process takes a year to accomplish.


What about The Tatami Shop?
"Take a deep breath and enjoy life"

Being the sole distributor of Tatami outside Japan in Southeast Asia, The Tatami Shop offers a classic range of handmade items for you and your family to enjoy.

With space being a concern with smaller houses these days, the presence of foldable Tatami is important to create more room for additional usage. Also, The Tatami Shop has innovated different Tatami flooring densities to suit our local context.

Handcrafted for the convenience of our customers, The Tatami Shop reduces the constant process of taking out & keeping the shiki futon.


Up till today, Tatami is still a Japanese national identity.
