When hearing the words "bed of nails" most people instantly think of an elderly Indian lying on sharp metal nails whilst getting heavy blocks stacked on top of him, all in favour of amusing the crowd. The truth is, as painful as it may look, it does not hurt, as the body weight of the fakir and the blocks are distributed evenly over the many nails.

Before the bed of nails was an aid for stunts in fairs and markets, it is believed to have been used by ancient Gurus and Yogis in the practice of healing and meditation. The origin of bed of nails is in Indian mysticism, and it is believed to have been around for hundreds of years. Today it is "re-invented" in a more modern form, as a mattress with more than 6,000 non/toxic plastic spikes, harmless to the skin but with all the healing benefits of its legendary ancestor!
