The Acupressure Mat or Shakti Mat is also called Nail Mat, Tantra Mat or Indian Nail Bed. It is made from thousands of acupressure points or plastic spikes for the purpose of deeply relaxing:
This high quality Shakti Nail Mat is handmade in India. Instead of the cheap “spikes” you often see, this mat has high quality lotus points.
Acupressure originated in traditional Chinese medicine, but has also been used in India for centuries to help heal the mind and body. According to experts, acupressure provides healing and soothing relief throughout the body by activating nerve endings. Research shows that as a result of acupressure, happiness hormones and the body’s own pain-relieving substances are released, relieving discomforts. It is also said to improve circulation.
A nail mat is often bought in combination with a Nail Pillow for more targeted relaxation. You can use a Nail pillow to relax stiff muscles in your neck and/or shoulders or to relieve headaches and muscle pain. When you have cold or tired feet, you can put the pillow under your feet to stimulate blood flow. There are many beneficial ways to use it!
“Every evening I lie on the mat for a while, I feel an immediate relaxation. Head out, body in.
Then, sometimes, but not always, I meditate. Go deeper into that right away.”
“After 5 minutes I fell asleep with a wonderfully warm back. Use it daily, very relaxing.”
