For some reason I thought the ‘bed of nails’ idea only existed as a science center demonstration, but I guess there are people who believe that lying down on a bed of pressure points can be beneficial. Now you’ll probably want to avoid using it for yoga, but if a bed of nails is what you’re after this mat is covered with 230 little circular plastic tees which each include 28 ‘nails’ for a grand total of 6,440 pressure points. The benefits of laying on this mat supposedly include improved circulation, decreased muscle tension, improved digestion, increased endorphins and eligibility for circus side-show work. It’s available in pink or green for ~$61 and there’s even an optional pillow for an extra ~$31.
