Take a moment to slow down and relax. Easier said than done these days right? Well I know for me, life is very stressful and busy and I go for days without even taking 5 minutes to relax. Going to bed is not really taking time for myself, and since I don’t sleep very well anyhow a night of sleep doesn’t really do much. But, since getting my bed of nails I have found time for me, to relax and just give myself a quiet time out during the day. Kinda like in kindergarten when we would have nap time. That is what giving myself a time out reminds me of. I get my mat out, and lay down with my eyes closed and just relax.
Thousands of years ago ancient Indian healing traditions believed that laying on a bed of nails had many curing benefits. Today of course you won’t find people laying on a real bed of nails, so that is what makes this product so wonderful. This bed of nails is a thin mattress with a cover that has 8,820 plastic nails on it, and the pillow cover has 2,142 nails on it. This is less harmful to the skin but still keeps with all the healing benefits of the ancient bed of nails.
When I first opened my package and took my bed of nails out I have to say I was a bit scared to try it. These little nails are sharp, and I am a big baby! LOL! But, I have wanted to give one a try for a while so took it upstairs and decided I would use it after I exercised. I did my normal 30 minute exercise and then laid this on the floor and lowered myself down on it as the instructions say. Wow.. it is sharp, but not a pain kinda sharp. I thought I would be a bit more tense while laying on it, but I found myself so relaxed I could have fallen asleep. Never am I that relaxed after a workout. I have found that I love to use this after my workouts. I give myself about an hour – hour and a half for my workouts and so this is perfect because I do my normal 30-45 minutes of working out, and then relax and rejuvenate my body and I am set to tackle the rest of my day.
I carry a lot of stress in my neck and shoulders due to my Fibro, and this really takes the stress and tension from those areas. Using this is an excellent aid in self treatment to help stimulate energy in the body while triggering the body’s innate way of healing itself. A body needs to relax in order to heal itself and so using the bed of nails puts your body in a state of relaxation, even though one might feel energized, you are still relaxed. The energized feeling can be because the bed of nails is releasing endorphin’s which is what helps make us happy and feel energized. The bed of nails may also help rid the body of toxins so it is important to drink plenty of water every day.
