ShaktiMat - Review of Acupressure Mat for Back Pain

Can lying on a device that mimics a bed of nails finally relieve your back pain? Does it hurt to lie on this seemingly torture tool with thousands of nail-like plastic spikes? You’ll find all the answers in this detailed review of the Shakti Mat.

How Does The Shakti Mat Supposed to Relieve Back Pain?

The Shakti Mat, also known as “The Swedish Bed of Nails”, is an ancient Indian medicinal tool, based on the theory of acupressure.

As you probably know, our body is lined with pressure points, which, when “pressured”, release pain relieving and stress reducing hormones (endorphins and oxytocin).

The result is an almost immediate relaxation, pain relief and stress relief.

Stimulating these pressure points causes an increased circulation, resulting in a warm feeling (blood is flowing, full of nutrients) and reduced heart rate, indicating relaxation. This makes the Shakti Mat an excellent sleep aid for people having trouble falling asleep due to back pain or just “plain old” insomnia.


Recent studies show that only 15 minutes a day of lying on the “nail” mats (for 3 weeks) reduced patients’ peak levels of pain dramatically
