The ancient nail mat (How to use - PDF file)

The nail mat is a very old tool that has its roots in the Indian mysticism.

The original nail mats were used by Yogis, practitioners of yoga, to resolve their deadlocks, both physical, emotional and mental. More than four thousand years old Chinese writings talk about treatments with needles to balance the body and psyche.


The modern nail mat

In the early 80s, nail mats started to appear in Russia. They were used in health care with very good results. Patients no longer needed their medicines and hopeless cases came to heal.

Extensive research into the nail mats effect was carried out at the Russian hospital and it showed great results.

Nail mats reduced inflammation, strengthened immune system, build new tissue, increased metabolism and decreased stress.

The Russian doctors were amazed that such a simple tool could have such an effect on the physical body. Also mental health was effected, decreased aggression and increased empathy.

The nail mat was also found to have a beneficial effect on depression.


What happens in the body.

The secret is that the nails acupressure function on the back starts the body's production of endorphins and oxytocin.

Endorphins are the body's natural painkillers and also called "runners high".

Oxytocin which is normally released during breastfeeding, human touch and makes you feel calm and relaxed.


How to use it.

You lie down with the mat under your back. If you find the nails sharp in the beginning you can use a thin fabric between you and the mat. The goal is to rest directly on the mat. 

At first you feel a burning sensation and of course it hurts, but its an even pressure and after a minute or so you feel the blood pulsate and the back is getting warm.

The endorphins and oxytocin kick in and a lovely feeling of well being is spread through your body and mind. After using the nail mat for a while you feel addicted to it. But its a good addiction without any side effects.

About 10-15 minutes makes you more alert and 20 minutes to as long as you like, makes you relaxed and stress free. You even fall asleep on the mat and that is heaven for people suffering from insomnia.

Eventually you can try the nail mat on other bodyparts.

Make it a daily routine. When it feels good it makes good!
