The Bed of Nails is a Swedish acupressure mat, inspired by ancient Indian healing tradition. 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. While triggering the body's innate way of healing itself, the 8,220 acupressure points make the Bed of Nails a very effective tool for easing tension and inducing a state of deep relaxation, while revitalizing and rejuvenating. 100% non-toxic plastic nails. Measures 16.5" x 28.5" x 1". Hand-washable removable cover. Imported. Warning! The Bed of Nails mat should not be used in case of skin disease, hemophilia or the intake of anticoagulants. If you are uncertain, always consult your doctor before use. Keep away from children 5 years of age and younger.
