If you often feel a lack of energy, have nagging pain caused by stress, tension or chronic illnesses, or are practicing sports and yoga regularly, Pranamat is a perfect tool for you! By using Pranamat for approximately half an hour 3-4 times a week, you will give your body a chance to gain more energy and alleviate pain created by stress and tension. Pranamat uses acupressure methods to “wake up” your body and direct blood flow to the organs that need it the most. Thus, by simply lying down on this modern “bed of nails”, you give your body a chance to heal itself and regain energy. By aligning the energy flow through your body, you will also help your mind to gain balance and harmony, and open a path to harmony and inner strength.
The underlying principle of effects of Pranamat is very simple: the tiny spikes of the lotuses massage your skin and thus stimulate the active nerve centers and intensify the local blood flow and lymph circulation. This reflective action triggers the release of endorphins, a natural pain killer and happiness hormone. They are effective in blocking pain, and producing analgesia and sense of well-being. Also oxytocin, the hormone of love, peace and calmness, is released. Oxytocin produces relaxation, our own “happy pill”. When the level of oxytocin rises, the level of stress hormones in the body falls. Oxytocin makes us socially open, and improves our working memory and our self esteem, expressed by our body. Oxytocin decreases worries and anxieties.
Many centuries ago, healers of the East were researching the sacred secrets of the body, learned to diagnose and heal by using active points and zones on the human body. They believed that the palms and feet have a special function – to regulate the work of inner organs. There are 12 classic and 8 miraculous meridians known since the ancient times. Pranamat compensates for lack of stimulation perfectly, creating an artificial but very intensive stimulation of these zones, thus compensating for the lack of stimulation of the necessary points. Pranamat is also an excellent tool for releasing tension of the shoulders, relaxing trapezium muscles that run all the way up to the base of the neck.
Colors are present in every aspect of human life. They are a powerful energy that is always having an effect on the human body and mind. As a warm color, orange is a stimulant. If you want to be noticed without screaming, consider the color orange – it demands attention. At the same time, orange is the color of spirituality. In the east, it is used as the main color for clothes of people who are following the way of spirituality. Saffron-orange clothes stimulate patience and peace of mind. It is the color of the svadhistana chakra. Wearing orange clothes helps to free oneself from excessive passion, lust and jealousy. Orange is the color of joy and warmth. It helps in case of negative psychic states (apathy, depression, melancholia). It clears up negative feelings, and helps us to accept negative events in life, forgive others, let irresolvable situations go while still finding solutions where there seem to be none, and helps in case of indecisiveness and shyness. Orange heals stomach diseases, gallstones, impotence.
The fact that different colors can have a positive influence on health and mood has been known since ancient times. Healing by colors was used in Egypt, China, India and Persia. In Europe, this research began only in the 19th Century, but the interest in color-therapy hasn't dwindled since. Every color has a certain rhythm of vibrations that has an individual effect on every person. Healing by color is linked to certain wavelengths on our organs and psychic centers.
All colors can be divided into warm and cold colors. The warm ones are arousing and stimulating while the cold colors are calming and relaxing. In Advaita's collection, the warm colors are represented by orange, yellow and pink. The cold colors are turquoise and purple. The color green is in the middle, having a slow and soft effect. Natural color – the color of linen – has a warming, relaxing effect, and could be classified as neutral.
In the last years few other companies have come up with new versions of the “bed of nails“. Pranamat is one of the latest versions. It is a unique design that combines the best experience acupressure mats can offer with a beautiful design and highest quality natural materials. Advaita believes that beauty is a power healer by itself. That is why instead of the usual nails, they use beautiful Lotus flowers. There is also a choice of different colors that have a deep philosophy behind them.
Pranamat’s unique design.
Thorns are made in a form of a lotus flower. It took nearly a year and lots of cooperation and consultations with doctors (acupressurists, massagists, manual therapists) and yoga teachers to create this inspired by nature and touching design. Human anatomy and physiology was very much considered in the process of development. And the most important point in Pranamat thorns’ design is that they activate and auto-massage each and every of your body active points.
What makes Pranamat so special?
The components used in its materials. They are so natural that every time you shall use Pranamat the feeling will take you to a place you have never been before, but would like to stay in – a world of health and harmony. Pranamat is very much different from other thorn-mats. It has got perfect connection of design and materials to make you feel naturally comfortable.
- Lotuses are made from H.I.P.S. plastic, which is:

- always suitable for re-processing.
- the substance decays in a soil not leaving any traces after disposing.

Why we did not choose foam rubber to fill our Pranamat?
It is for the reason that after a short time of usage a certain amount of dust is produced by it. Foam rubber gives you a risk of allergy, but coconut fibers keep the air around you fresh and clean! Foam rubber tears easily – coconut fiber does not. Foam rubber is airtight, it absorbs smells. Coconut fiber is free from all these negative sides – so it is absolutely safe for your health! Give yourself a healthy chance and benefit from using natural materials.
What picture would you like to keep in mind while resting on a nail mat – bed of nails or pond of lotuses? Most people would prefer the second one – the most harmonious and pleasant. This is why Advaita made thorns of Pranamat in a shape of lotus flower. They are absolutely concerned about the direct emotional influence on your health.
Are there any restrictions for using Pranamat?
Though, Pranamat is a very safe acupressure mat, it has still got some restrictions. Please, read more on "Usage restrictions" page and find a booklet inside your Pranamat box.
Is it ok to use Pranamat when having a whiplash?
Yes, a lot of people experience an improvement.
Is Pranamat good for using if I have rheumatoid arthritis?
Yes, many people have very good results with regular use.
Should I use Pranamat if I have inflammation in my joints or muscles?
Yes. A lot of people had improvement. Place the inflamed area on the Pranamat or gently press Pranamat directly on the area. Your blood circulation will increase and as a result will help to heal the area.
Is Pranamat good for people suffering from depression?
Absolutely, yes! The release of endorphins and oxytocin has a calming und uplifting effect. Oxytocin is the peace and calm hormone, our body’s own “happy pill”. It is secreted during breast-feeding, caresses, massage, meditation or other enjoyable activities. When levels of oxytocin rise, the levels of stress hormones in the body fall. Damaged or worn tissues are repaired and new cells grow where they are needed. Worries and anxieties shall decrease as a result of oxytocin level increase!
