The Chinese scriptures which date back more than 4000 years tell us about treatments with nails to balance body and mind. No one knows for sure when the bed of nails was first used to heal the body and raise consciousness. An approximate estimate is at least several thousand years
Channeling Ki or Chi or Reiki energy through the acupressure points can enable you to tap into Traditional Chinese or Indian Medicine’s tremendous wealth of ancient healing knowledge.

Advantages of Using Acupressure include relieving pain, balancing the body, and maintaining good health. Acupressure’s healing touch reduces tension, increases circulation, and enables the body to relax. By relieving stress, acupressure therapy strengthens resistance to disease and promotes wellness.

Our modern day acupressure spike mat is designed to relieve pain and stress, and produce relaxation through acupressure therapy. Lying on the 6,200 plastic spikes assembled on the Shakti Mat helps increase blood flow and stimulate nerve endings. The result is an effective tool to resolve tension, relieve pain and provide deep relaxation.

 

Meditate or fall asleep laying on this Shakti mat

Sweet dreams!

When it comes to holistic health, you’ve tried everything from healing to hypnosis, but the costly bills that ensue make you feel sick. Perhaps you should invest in a Shakti Mat. The ingenious new product — deemed ‘the Indian bed of nails’ by its Swedish designer, Om Mokshananda — is a soft and spongy mat covered in plastic spikes that, when lain upon, act as acupressure points to stimulate the skin, increase blood flow and ease troubles like insomnia, muscle tension and lethargy. (Keep a sheet on at first: these babies are sharp.)

The Shakti Mat has over 6,000 acupressure points. Contrary to popular beliefs, the bed of nails was not a macho toy for the Indian fakirs to prove their resistance to pain. Studies reveal that its true purpose has always been a treatment to balance the body, mind and soul.

 

Use it in the office sitting down or use it in your bedroom laying on the mat

Use it anywhere.

How to use the Shakti Mat?
Place your Shakti Mat on a bed or on a soft surface. Ideally use a pillow or a rolled up towel underneath the mat to support your neck. Lie in a comfortable position so that your bare skin rests in contact with the pressure points. Relax and breathe deeply… Initially spend about 10–15 minutes on your mat. When you become more accustomed, you may want to increase the length of the treatment to 20–40 minutes.

The effect?
Over 6,000 pressure points make the Shakti Mat a very efficient tool for releasing tension and inducing a state of deep relaxation. The Shakti Mat helps stimulate the release of endorphins, the body’s own hormone responsible for inducing an overall sense of calmness and well-being. These ‘feel-good’ hormones help make us happy, relaxed and energised and are often referred to as the body’s own ‘natural pain killers’.

What is Acupressure?

Benefits of acupressure

Healing touch

Acupressure is an ancient healing art using the fingers and other parts of the body to skillfully press key points, which stimulate the body’s natural self-curing abilities. When these trigger points are pressed, they release muscular tension, and promote circulation of blood, and the body’s life force energy (Qi or Chi or Prana) to aid healing. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same pressure points and meridians, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses gentle to firm pressure and integrates bodywork therapies, therapeutic touch, somatic work, healing imagery, energy psychology, and massage therapy techniques.

Shakti acupressure mat

Our modern day acupressure spike mat is designed to relieve pain and stress, and produce relaxation through acupressure therapy. Lying on the 6,200 plastic spikes assembled on the Shakti Mat helps increase blood flow and stimulate nerve endings. The result is an effective tool to resolve tension, relieve pain and provide deep relaxation.

If you haven’t already seen one, tried one, or at least heard about the Shakti mat – be prepared. This mat sold 300.000 pieces last year in Sweden alone. And now the inventor is ready for a world-wide launch.

The Shakti Mat’s distinctive design is reminiscent of the Indian bed of nails, an ancient healing practice used by mystics to achieve deep meditative states. Our Shakti mat combines thousands of years of Indian tradition with modern technology to aid in the healing process and help release emotional, physical and mental blockages.

When you lie on the Shakti Mat, it prompts the body to produce good hormones such as endorphins and oxytocin. Endorphins are normally released during physical movement and exercise, and help support body against pain. Oxytocin helps you relax and allows you to fall asleep more easily.
