Bed of Nails
Now that school is done, the stress of the real world is coming. Arm your favorite grad with a Dr. Oz-endorsed Bed of Nails acupressure mat and/or pillow that will take the sting out of any day. Both the pillow and mat feature non-toxic plastic spikes designed to stimulate the body to release endorphins (feel good hormones) and oxytocin (pain blockers), similar to how needles work in acupuncture.
