Bed of nails brings the self-healing benefits of more expensive treatments (such as acupuncture and massage) into the homes and workplaces of people everywhere to create and sustain a healthy lifestyle amid the stresses of a modern world. Inspired by ancient Indian healing tradition, it is believed to have been around for thousands of years. Today it is re-invented in a more modern form, with thousands of non-toxic plastic spikes, harmless to the skin but with all the healing benefits of its legendary ancestor. Bed of nails is similar to acupuncture, the pressure of the rounded nails against the skin may help the body release endorphins, the body’s very own “happiness drug” which provides a sense of joy, energy and pain relief, and oxytocin, which makes you calm and relaxed. A lot of people experience feelings of happiness, relaxation, heightened body temperature and a clearer mind.
