    Who knew lying on a bed of nails would be so relaxing?

    And disclaimer: This is an account of my personal experience with this product. There’s no proven scientific evidence that acupressure mats can help back pain or other health issues, so I recommend talking to your doctor about your own issues before trying this.

    Acupuncture has been a small miracle for my back pain, stress, and intermittent insomnia.

    So when I found out about this acupressure mat, and saw that it promised to address all my woes (and then some!) from the comfort of my home for less than $27, I knew I had to give it a try.

    This one has 6,210 (!) pressure points, an A on Fakespot, and a lot of incredibly positive reviews.

    The — very lightweight, I should mention — mat arrived in a handy little plastic carrier bag with a list of instructions for what to do if you’re a beginner, intermediate, or advanced mat user. (Click any photo to enlarge.)

    I’ve done acupuncture a bunch of times, but never used a mat, so I started with the beginner level, for good measure.

    The next day, I skipped the intermediate level and went all in — and this time, I actually saw the light.

    That experience was so gratifying that I started working the mat into my nightly routine: now, I either do a guided meditation while lying on it, or watch some TV.

    Overall, the mat has brought a lot of relaxation and chill vibes into my life.

    Get it on Amazon for $26.97, or get a similar one from Amazon for $25.99.
