The actual effect of lying on a bed of nails is very similar to the feelings one can experience after running or a good workout. Some refer to it as "runner's high." This natural high is not only caused by feelings of self satisfaction but is caused by chemicals produced in the brain, such as Endorphin. It is mostly known as a chemical that is released to help the body deal with pain. When your back is in contact with thousands of acupressure points you will naturally experience some level of pain. Initially, this may be an uncomfortable feeling. However, it will soon be replaced by a very comfortable state of natural high. It is simply a result of your natural pain relievers (Endorphins) being circulated into your blood stream. Having this chemical released into your body can decrease different kinds of pain, and cause feelings of Euphoria. Additionally staying on the mat for over 10 minutes may put you into deep relaxation, which is a meditative state of mind where long-term tension can be released. The stimulation and relaxation from the spikes may also help increase blood circulation, which is important to many aspects of our health. Increased circulation improves body functions such as; lowering blood pressure, better absorption of nutrients and assists the body in detoxifying.
