Shakti Mat - Magic Carpet

Try alternative therapy in the comfort of your own home

The new Shakti Mat otherwise known as the 'Indian bed of nails' is covered in plastic spikes that act as acupressure points relieving ailments such as muscle tension and insomnia. BBH sub editor, Jemima Cousins tried it out and said, "The spikes are quite sharp and it took me two days to get use to the sensation before I could lay on the mat properly. Afterwards my muscles did feel limber." For first time users, you are instructed to place a sheet over the mat and for those who want milder treatment a lighter version is available.
