Bed of Nails: $99.95
Bed of Nails® is similar to acupuncture; the pressure of the rounded nails against the skin may help the body release endorphins, the body’s very own “happiness drug” which provides a sense of joy, energy and pain relief, and oxytocin, which induces a sense of calm (yes, it is possible to feel energetic and relaxed at the same time!). Bed of Nails is an excellent self-treatment for stimulating energy in the body. While triggering the body’s innate way of healing itself, it is an effective tool for easing tension and inducing a state of deep relaxation. Bed of Nails may also help the body rid itself of toxins, so it is important to drink water after using Bed of Nails.
Everybody reacts differently to Bed of Nails, and the effects can even vary from time to time; after using Bed of Nails, you may feel tired, hungry, happy, alert. Many people experience feelings of happiness, relaxation, improved circulation, heightened body temperature, increased vitality, and a clearer state of mind.
Review: I have been using the Bed of Nails mat and pillow every morning before I get my day started. It is such a bizarre feeling when you first lay on the “nails!” I expected it to hurt, but it actually feels amazing! I have never experienced anything like it. My body seemed to just melt into the “nails” and it truly gave me a sense of euphoria. I was utterly relaxed and energized at the same time - a GREAT way to start (or end) your day!

Better Back: $59
Perfect posture effortlessly
BetterBack allows you to effortlessly sit in perfect posture, easing back pain — and preventing it. Lightweight and portable, it makes every chair ergonomic. Wearing it for just 15 minutes a day can retrain your body’s default posture, so when you stand or sit without BetterBack, your posture is greatly improved.
- Makes every chair ergonomic – Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on one chair, BetterBack makes every chair ergonomic.
- The ultimate back support - Much more than a traditional lumbar support, BetterBack stabilizes the pelvis, restoring the spine's natural curvature. It acts as a super muscle, holding you comfortably in good posture for as long as you have to sit.
- Posture trainer - Like dumbbells at a gym, BetterBack helps build posture muscles so you’re able to achieve great posture on your own.
- Default to good posture - Most people feel comfortable slumped and rounded because of muscle memory. Wearing BetterBack for just 15 minutes a day can retrain your body’s default posture so it feels comfortable to sit right.
Review: So I always thought of myself as someone who had pretty good posture and maintained that good posture throughout the day. Well boy was I wrong. Immediately after putting on my Better Back I realized I had been sitting all wrong. This genius contraption instantly forced me into the correct position and helped me to remain there. It is amazing how much easier it is to work and concentrate when sitting in perfect posture. Note: It felt a little odd at first until I realized there was a clip to keep your legs together - I suggest using that. :)

Review: So I was a bit hesitant when I first came across the body brush, thinking, “really? you want me to rub those dry boar bristles all over my body?” Well let me tell you - I am so glad I did! I have been using the body brush in the morning after laying on my Bed of Nails and before getting in the shower. I feel like it wakes my whole body up! I swear I can feel my blood start moving! After I brush then shower I have been using the body butter and my skin has never felt so hydrated and soft! These two products are a must have for new healthy skin!

Review: Love this product! This is one of those “why didn’t I think of that?” products. It is so simple, yet utterly brilliant! While the company promotes it as a tool for relaxation, it is SO much more than that. I have been wearing mine at the office while working to help me concentrate, at the gym to keep my hair out of my eyes and to listen to my pump up music without having to worry about my headphones falling out, and while relaxing at home listening to my “Calm Meditation” Pandora Station. I really love wearing my ZenBand over my eyes while I am laying on my Bed of Nails in the mornings - perfect combo!
Therapy Threads: $65-$115
Therapy Threads is a luxurious, aromatherapy scarf line with a mission, aroma and style. Founded by Psychotherapist, Dani Singer, Therapy Threads uses organic essential oils to relax, revitalize, and boost the wearer with fashion that engages the senses.
Each scarf is handmade with all-natural, high-quality fabric and contains a hidden pocket in which an essential oil aroma packet can be hidden, allowing for subtle doses of healing aromas throughout the day to therapeutically empower the yogi, traveler, fashionista or everyday person.
The scarves come with one of three healing essential oil scents: citrus bliss, good for a mood boost and stress relief; lavender, which aids with stress and anxiety, promoting relaxation and sleep; and wild orange to energize and revitalize the mind and body.
Therapy Threads is about more than just fashion, it's about spreading healing and wellness, and ending the stigmas associated with mental health. The scarves are designed to start a larger conversation about many of the tougher issues associated with mental health that Singer sees while working with patients in her practice daily. That's why each purchase supports local and national mental health initiatives with the goal to build a healthier community.
Review: Therapy Threads feel like a cozy, loving hug when you really need it. The scarf itself is beautifully made and incredibly soft! I use the red one with the lavender oil and it is amazing how calming the scent is. The fabrics are wonderful and is so lightweight that you can wear it year-round! Love Therapy Threads and recommend it to anyone that needs a little “breather” from stress, anxiety, or the daily toils of life.
Baby Foot: $25
Baby Foot is designed to remove the unsightly, dead skin cells on your feet that build up over time and can contribute to numerous problems associated with the soles of your feet. Baby Foot is an unparalleled, total foot care package that provides you with the opportunity to care for and maintain your feet at home. Their scientifically formulated product contains 17 types of natural extracts which exfoliate and moisturize at the same time. The principal ingredient of Baby Foot is fruit acid which is very gentle, when compared with other acids. The fruit acid penetrates into the layers of dead skin cells and breaks down the desmosomes which hold the layers together. By this process, skin is undamaged but peels easily away from the fresh layer beneath. After peeling, your feet are reborn just like a baby’s foot, giving you healthy, beautiful feet.
