The modern day Indian bed of nails! The Acupressure mat has existed in India for relaxation exercises, meditation and yoga for thousands of years.
The TRIBE Acupressure Mat with 6,534 spikes is a therapeutic tool that uses the benefits of acupressure points to bring about a feeling of deep relaxation. A modern day take on the ancient concept of a 'Bed of Nails', it is designed to combat stress, sleep problems and pain while encouraging circulation, muscle recovery and relaxation.
The TRIBE Acupressure mat activates the body's own production of endorphins, "natural painkillers", which are also released during exercise; these endorphins give pain relief and a sense of physical well-being. As well as endorphins, the body also releases oxytocin that helps with relaxation, helping you to wind down and making it easier to fall asleep.

Aim to use your TRIBE Acupressure Mat with bare skin, but you can always start out with thin clothing between your skin and the mat while your body adjusts.
When you're starting out on a new area you can adjust the intensity by limiting or adding body weight onto the mat.
The first time on a new area will often feel sensitive, but over time your body will adjust to the sensation.
