I have a lot of medical issues, and I live with constant pain. I’ll try just about anything to lessen the pain, so that I can live a more normal and productive life…BUT…I have to admit that I tried out the Bed of Nail Mat and Neck Pillow, with a wee bit of trepidation. Even though the mat and pillow are a pretty shade of pink, they do have lots and lots of sharp points. Hubby was home, so we decided to give them a go together. He took the neck pillow and I took the mat. Nothing Ventured – Nothing Gained. Right?
20 minutes later we were both so relaxed! On my first try, I rested on the mat wearing a lightweight cotton nightgown. As I eased myself onto the mat, I didn’t feel any type of pain sensation at all. Nor, did I feel any soreness when I got up. Maybe this is because I am always in pain to varying degrees. Steve wanted to give the neck pillow a try because he suffers from chronic headaches. He can’t remember a single day in the last 35 years, that he hasn’t woken up without a throbbing head, and he suffers from migraines several times a week.
Bed of Nails is the much talked about health product that can alleviate stress, back pain, muscle ache, sleeping problems and other issues. Often called an ‘acupressure mat’, Bed of Nails works similar to acupuncture, by pressuring your body’s acupressure points. Scientific studies has been done in Sweden that Bed of Nails reduces the worst of your muscle pain. Just lie on Bed of Nails for a minimum of 10 minutes and feel your body heating up and becoming really relaxed. The first few minutes can feel a bit sharp for beginners, if too sharp, just use a light t-shirt.
Many people fall asleep on Bed of Nails, which is not dangerous at all. your back may look a bit prickly when you get off it and feel slightly sore but it goes away quickly.
Bed of Nails is a quick and cost effective way to increase your every day wellbeing, relax and rejuvenate yourself!
How We Use our Bed of Nails
The man wasn’t really interested in trying out the mat, but I wanted to have a go at the pillow when he was done. Now it has become a part of my regular day. I try to sit quietly with it every morning before I start my day, and then again before bed each night – along with the mat. I have severe RLS and take some hefty doses of medication to get me through the night and day. Even though Bed of Nails has not eliminated the need for medication, it certainly has helped
Before Bed of Nails, I often spent up to an hour standing and stretching at the side of the bed, before the meds kicked in. Now I’m usually able to shower or bathe, take my meds, brush my teeth and climb directly into bed with the mat under my bare legs. Some nights I sleep on the mat all the way thorugh until the morning. Other nights I wake up and move it to the chair by my bed.
One of our sons lives with us, and he likes to rest his neck on the pillow while watching TV. For me, that doesn’t work because I become so relaxed that I tend to fall asleep and then miss the bulk of whatever show we have on.
