The Indian Bed of Nails, used by India's Yogis for centuries, is thought to be a precursor to acupressure. Until recently, health benefits of this torturous-looking bed remained largely unknown. Instead, the device was often used as a circus-trick or for a display of machismo as astonished onlookers gawked. Then, old met new. Ancient principles were combined with modern technology and the Acupressure Mat was born. Circular disks with sharp points directly contact bare skin for self-administered acupressure for intense healing. The mat is said to help many health conditions including sciatica, insomnia, inflammation, migraine, back pain, stress, overworked muscles, cellulite and weight loss to name a just few. Rave reviews of the product's ability to lessen pain, physical and emotional, abound on the internet. Modern-day yogis are even practicing yoga on the mat! Body Buddies are drug-free, exercise-free and effort-free! We Invite you to kick back and relax or sit in Lotus pose or lie in Savasana or just rest for a while, and let the joy juices flow!
The Mat is available in different colors: Red, Purple, Pink, Green and Blue. Dimensions are 67 x 42cm (26.4 x 16.5 inches) and comes with a detachable rubber foam mattres around 1 inch tall. There are 230 plastic buttons with 27 spikes each. Back of the Mat shows an astrological wheel and comes with a free short natal report.
