Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Being a Mom, a Wife, and a Business owner can be very stressful.  Some people carry stress in the shoulders, I happen to carry my stress in my back.  So when I was looking for natural remedies for stress and backaches,  I came across Bed Of Nails.  They sent me one of the Beds of Nails to put to the test. bed-of-nails

A little about Bed of Nails:  Bed of Nails works 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 painrelief, and oxytocin, which makes You calm and relaxed ( yes, it is possible to feel energetic and be relaxed at the same time!). Everybody reacts differently to Bed of Nails, and the effects can even vary from time to time; You may feel tired, hungry, happy, alert. Alot of people experience feelings of happiness, relaxation and hightened body temperature. (Beds Of Nails)

I have heard wonders about acupuncture, but I have always been afraid to try it.  So when I heard about Bed Of Nails, I figured that was the next best thing.  After reading a little about Bed of Nails I found out that if you use it regularly for a long enough period of time, it can help alleviate

  • Stress
  • Headache
  • Constipation
  • Tiredness
  • Insomnia
  • Tension
  • Back pain
  • Muscle aches
  • Malaise

When I heard Bead of Nails, I thought “oh my gosh, its going to hurt”   So when I tried it at first, I was wearing a tank top and a t-shirt.   That’s when I realized that I really couldn’t feel the “nails” like I thought I would.  So, down to the tank top I went.  With one less layer, I was able to feel the nubs from the plastic “nails”.  At first, it was a slight discomfort – but that was because I was not sure of what to expect -and I was also slightly tense, expecting the worse.  After laying on it for a couple minutes, I became more relaxed.   After using this every other day for a couple weeks, I did notice that there was a little less stress in my back – which means a little less back pain.   My son has taken claim to this though.  Every chance he gets, he goes and lays on it.  I don’t know if he gets any “stress relief” from it – as he is only 7.  I think he enjoys it because its 1) Mommy’s and 2) something funny looking.

Make sure you take a moment to follow Bed of Nails on Facebook and Twitter.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  1. I’ve tried a mat like this before, I just couldn’t use it after a couple of days. I’m very sensitive to touch, and don’t even like massages, so this was just too much for me.

  3. The title of this scared me until I read that it was plastic, LOL! I could see how something like this could relieve muscle tension. I would try it if it isn’t too sharp! Cool review!

    • It really isn’t that sharp. The “nails” reminds me of the cleats you would find on golf shoes (just a little smaller ends). I did stand full weight on it (in thin socks) and it wasn’t painful.

  4. I would totally tense up too! Our science museum has a bed of nails that the kids can laid down on, push a button and the nails raise, and then push a button to lower them back down. It’s really cool and the kids think it’s so awesome!

  8. I’ve always wanted to try one of these!!! Back pain is the worst. I’m so glad to read about a “real” person trying it and liking it. I think I’m going to ask for one for my birthday…if I don’t buy it sooner. :)
