Bed of Nails
Size: 74 x 41 x 2cm
Reclining on a mat of 8,820 plastic spikes might not initially sound like a dream recipe for relaxation, but hear us out on this. Similar to acupuncture, these little needles trigger the release of endorphins and oxytocin, the hormones responsible for feeling happy and calm, as well as for relieving pain.
We find lying on it for 10 to 20 minutes just before we nod off helps to cultivate a deeper night’s sleep, while many swear by it for easing back and neck pain.
Regular users lie on the mat for 20 to 30 minutes every day, although you might need to build up your tolerance to this - we advise starting with 10 minutes and adding a couple of minutes a day. For maximum benefit, you should really try to lie on it with your bare skin, but if this feels too uncomfortable at first, wear thin clothing for the first few sessions until you've adjusted to the sensation.
The Bed of Nails should not be used in case of skin disease, haemophilia or the intake of anticoagulants
The nails are made of 100% recycled non-toxic ABS plastic, the textile is cotton.
