I always feel exhausted, achy, and like I have zero energy. It is frustrating to feel this way all the time, but since I received the Bed of Nails my energy level has practically skyrocketed. The way I feel after using the mat is similar to the feeling you get from a great workout. It is like a rush. When you lay on the mat you begin to feel heat spread through your back (in a good way) as endorphins are released, which is the body's natural pain reliever. To me it felt like I was being charged up. When you first start using the mat you may want to wear a thin shirt or tank top until you get used to the feeling...it can be a little intense for some people. Although I have a high tolerance for pain I have sensitive skin so I decided to try it with a shirt first. I didn't like it with the shirt on so I took the shirt off and laid on it directly. It felt a tiny bit uncomfortable for about a minute until I started to feel the heat spread. I got used to the feeling very quickly and actually enjoyed it. After using it your back will be a little red. On my pale skin it resembles a light sunburn and the mat also leaves behind some indentation marks, but don't worry because it fades relatively quickly. You just might not want to go out in a tank top immediately after. It is recommended that Bed of Nails be used every day for 10-30 minutes for maximum effect. I use it in 10 minute intervals throughout the day when I feel I need a pick me up.
Other than relieving pain and increasing energy levels, Bed of Nails can also help with:
- reducing anxiety and stress
- improving sleep and relieving insomnia
- improving circulation
- improving skin complexion
- relieving constipation
