WHAT IS BED OF NAILS?
The mystical bed of nails originated over 1,000 years ago and was used by gurus in the practice of meditation and healing. Bed of Nails® has created a modern, ergonomically designed version of that ancient technology, with a Swedish twist, to model those same deep healing effects. With thousands of non-toxic plastic nails, harmless to the skin but with all the healing benefits of its legendary ancestor. Bed of Nails® (BON) brings the self-healing benefits of treatments, such as acupuncture and massage, into the homes and workplaces of people everywhere to create and sustain a healthy lifestyle amid the stresses of a modern world.
WHY MORE NAILS MATTER
Bed of Nails started the global acupressure mat movement back in 2009. Since then, we’ve worked hard to create the most comfortable and practical acupressure products on the market. How? We added more nails and made the mat bigger. Our round nail plates have 42 nails rather than 25 nails like most other mats on the market. Armed with 8,820 hypoallergenic plastic nails, our acupressure mat stimulates more points with less pressure, making the experience invigorating rather than painful. This makes our products more comfortable to use while giving you more treatment.
HOW DOES BED OF NAILS WORK?
Bed of Nails is an excellent aid in self-treatment that helps stimulate energy in the body. While triggering the body’s innate way of healing itself, it is an effective tool for easing tension and inducing a state of deep relaxation. Bed of Nails is similar to acupuncture; the pressure of the rounded nails against the skin may help the body release endorphins, the body’s very own “happiness drug” which provides a sense of joy, energy and pain relief, and oxytocin, which makes you feel calm and relaxed (yes, it is possible to feel energetic and be relaxed at the same time!)
BED OF NAILS MISSION
The healing effects of acupressure include relief from stress, insomnia, and pain, as well as increased energy and overall wellbeing. By bringing such profound benefits, acupressure becomes a powerful tool for improving quality of life. We believe that people enjoy life more, and work harder, when they have easy access to user-friendly tools for self-healing. By promoting quality design and accessible products to the mainstream, we aim as high as healing the world and make Bed of Nails into the most widely recognized brand in the field of healthy living.
WHAT IS BED OF NAILS MADE OF?
All our products have 100% non-toxic recyclable HIPS plastic, certified for use in surgical equipment. These nails are secured to the fabric with a melting process rather than environmentally damaging glue. With more nails than most other acupressure mats on the market, it allows for more treatment and more comfort. Less nails, not only provide less treatment, it is also a more painful experience as that will provide more bodyweight on each nail.
Our signature BON products use 100% Cotton, hand washable removable cover with a PU foam insert.
We are committed to the health of our BON Tribe but also to the health of our planet. Over the years we’ve researched and tested, and researched again, to find the most sustainable materials for our acupressure products. Our BON ECO line features sustainable materials that is better for the environment and more luxurious for you.
Did you know linen requires less water to grow than other fabric materials? It’s also stronger when wet, recyclable and biodegradable. Linen is also more hygienic to use as it breathes better, which keeps you cool and dry.
100% Buckwheat Hull
Biodegradable these hulls allow for constant air circulation through the pillow, which keeps you cool and dry. Since the buckwheat hull is springy and doesn’t compress under pressure, it provides a firm, contouring support that supports proper rest of your head and neck positioning and will reduce stress on your neck, head, and spine
100% Coconut Fiber
For more environmentally friendly support, our biodegradable coconut fiber filling gives the mat a heavier, more substantial feel and even more long-lasting strength. It also breathes better and keeps you cool and dry.
