I've always wondered what it would be like to lie on a bed of nails, and now I can stop wondering with the Bed of Nails Relaxation Mat. Of course, it isn't as torturous or medieval-looking as it sounds. Instead, it looks deceptively like a regular yoga mat.

Yet the Bed of Nails Relaxation Mat is more than just a yoga mat. It features "230 little circular plastic tees which each include 28 ‘nails’ for a grand total of 6,440 pressure points," according to OhGizmo. That means improved circulation, decreased muscle tension, improved digestion and increased endorphins.
