Acupressure Pillow - Black 37cm x15cm x 10 cm
The bed of nails has been used by Indian mystics for centuries in the practice of healing and meditation and now it's been re-invented with a Skandi twist to give you a whole range of benefits, from curing insomnia and banishing arthritic aches, to helping alleviate headaches, combat fatigue and restore your skin's luminosity (the spikes help the body rid itself of toxins and increase blood flow, which gives you a healthy, lit-from-within glow).
Description The Bed of Nails Acupressure Pillow is covered with over 2,100 non-toxic plastic 'nails' that help release endorphins (the body's natural 'happy hormone') and oxytocin, to alleviate tension and leave you feeling calm and relaxed yet energised (you can be both at the same time)! The perfect way to help banish aches and pains, especially if you suffer from a stiff neck or knotted shoulders, this is also excellent for those who have trouble sleeping, easing you into a deep and restorative slumber.
How to use Lay the Bed of Nails pillow on the floor or a mattress and slowly lower yourself onto it. Lay a sheet over the pillow until your skin gets used to the spikes. Initially lie on the Bed of Nails pillow for 10 - 15 mins, then build up to 20 - 30mins. Use as often as you need - preferably daily. Don't be alarmed if your skin feels warm and tingly, and it's perfectly safe to fall asleep for a while. If you are uncertain, always consult your doctor. Keep away from children 5 years of age and younger Leaning against it (rather than laying on top of the mat and pillow) is a lighter way to use Bed of Nails while you acclimatise (you put less weight on the spikes when you do). Place the mat/pillow at the back of your sofa, bed or armchair to experience the benefits while building up your tolerance.
