On Pins and Needles
The peculiar-looking pillow and mat were inspired by the ancient Indian theory of acupressure. According to the theory, the body is lined with "pressure points" which, when stimulated, release natural pain-relieving hormones.The plastic points scattered across these pillows prickle the skin, eventually releasing endorphins similar to those we experience after an intense exercise session. The bodyʼs very own "happiness drug," endorphins provide a sense of joy and a jolt of energy. To activate these feel-good hormones, just lie on the bed for a minimum of 10 minutes. While it may feel uncomfortable at first, after a few minutes the pressure will give way and you'll be able to enjoy the technique's healing benefits. Made in China.
