Forget getting regular and oh-so pricey massages. This year, de-stress with Dr. Oz endorsed, BED OF NAILS acupressure mat and pillow. Yes, sleeping on a bed of nails is a GOOD thing! Both the pillow and mat feature non-toxic plastic spikes designed to stimulate the body to release endorphins (feel good hormones) and oxytocin (pain blockers), similar to how needles work in acupuncture. Bed of Nails got its start in Sweden and now a whopping 10 percent of their population owns one. In the U.S. athletes from the NHL RedWings to Hollywood A-listers like Kate Beckinsale and Jennifer Lopez swear by the product to alleviate back and neck pain, reduce stress, and improve sleep. Use Bed of Nails for at least 10 minutes a day and you'll notice less pain, less stress and more relaxation in your life. www.bedofnails.org
