These days, we could all use a little more self-care: a massage, a chiropractor, a physical therapist, an acupuncturist or whatever else. But not all of us can spare the $150-$200 it will cost to have a session (or twenty, which is what we could all use). We’ve all got some kind of pain we’re dealing with, from migraines to back and neck pain and everything in between. And no matter the expert we seek out, why should it have to cost so much for us to find relief?

Bed of Nails has become a lifestyle for many to bridge better health by using the products to alleviate pain such as migraines, back pain, and release endorphins and more. They even have a new back acupressure strap that acts like a quick trip to the acupuncturist, without the hole in your wallet!

Bed of Nails user-friendly tools brings the self-healing benefits of more expensive treatments (such as acupuncture and massage) into the homes and workplaces of people everywhere. The healing effects of Bed of Nails include relief from stress, insomnia, and pain, as well as increased energy and overall well-being.

Bed of Nails came out in 2007 on the Swedish market and due to its healing benefits quickly spread by word of mouth and has been recognized in the Swedish healthcare sector. After just 2 years on the Swedish market, it was voted “2009 – Christmas Gift of the Year” by the Swedish Retail Institute (in 2010 it was the “tablet computer”/iPad).

It is already well known that acupressure stimulates energy in the body and is great for treating chronic pain because it increases your body’s production of Serotonin which is a natural painkiller. In addition, it promotes circulation and boosts relaxation.

Bed of Nails also releases 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 (yes, it is possible to feel energetic and be relaxed at the same time!). Laying on a Bed of nails also activates the Parasympathetic Nervous System which takes you into an instant deep relaxation.

*Endorphins are released in response to pain and stress and help to alleviate anxiety and depression. Similar to morphine, it acts as an analgesic and sedative, diminishing our perception of pain.

**Oxytocin – This “Bliss Hormone” can help heal your body. A mediator of anti-stress, well-being, social interaction, growth and healing. Oxytocin can act as a psychological buffer. It reduces background anxiety and naturally enhances a sense of; optimism, trust, mastery, and self-esteem. Oxytocin also influences the digestive system as much as it influences the brain. It has been proven to cool gastrointestinal inflammation and autoimmune disorders. Oxytocin also reduces levels of cortisol (stress hormone) in the body and lowers blood pressure.
