I received Bed of Nails products in order to facilitate my review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

With the start of the year on the horizon, many people are turning their thoughts to making resolutions.  One goal I often hear, especially from women, is to try and figure out how to find a few moments of “me” time.  Five or 10 minutes here and there to decompress, destress, and relax.

Bed of Nails Mat - Pink

Something to consider to enhance your “me” time in 2014 are products from Bed of Nails.  These aren’t what you might think of when you think of relaxing.  The Bed of Nails mat and pillow are actually covered in thousands of tiny little plastic “nails” designed to stimulate the acupressure points in your body.

This might sound a little more like torture and a little less like relaxation, but surprisingly that’s not the case.  I carry a lot of tension in my upper back and neck, so I am always on the lookout for products that might target those areas.  When you use the Bed of Nails pillow and mat together, you’re basically covering everything from the back of your head down to your calves, depending on how tall you are (the mat is 28.5″ long).

Bed of Nails Pillow - Green

So other than being kind of cool and unique, what do Bed of Nails products actually do?  It works similar to acupuncture; the pressure of the rounded nails against the skin may help the body release endorphins which can provide a sense of joy, energy and pain relief.  It also releases chemicals in the body that can make you calm and relaxed.

Bed of Nail Uses

Bed of Nails products may alleviate:

  • Stress
  • Headache
  • Tiredness
  • Insomnia
  • Tension
  • Back pain
  • Muscle Aches

I have noticed feeling more energized after lying on the mat for awhile.  And it does seem to relieve my general aches and pains, also.  The pillows and mats are sold separately and come in both pink and green.  They can be purchased online from Amazon or in most Bed, Bath & Beyond brick and mortar stores.

What aches or pains would you use Bed of Nails products for?
