How does this spikey pillow reduce pain?

Millions of people suffer with chronic pain, and I’m always on the lookout for something safe that can help.

Headaches, back pain, neck pain, plantar fasciitis, etc. Many people have chronic pain from old injuries, from emotional trauma, and from poor posture.

Let me explain how it works.

The small spikes create a sensation that competes with the pain signals traveling to your brain. You sense the spikes rather than the pain, and you break the body/brain loop that constitutes chronic pain. Your brain begins to focus on the spikes instead of that pesky headache at the top of your neck or ache in your back.

I find after I’m done lying on the pillow for about 20 minutes I’ve broken that cycle and and feel much better for the rest of the day.

Most of what you feel as chronic pain is a feedback loop, not tissue damage. Something like a twisted ankle is an acute injury with tissue damage, and that’s different. Chronic pain is a cycle or a feedback loop between the body part and your brain. When you use the acupressure pillow it interrupts the feedback cycle.

Even over the counter drugs can be dangerous.

Chronic pain is extremely common and many people are using over the counter medicines like Ibuprofen (a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory NSAID) and Acetaminophen.

A safe and natural alternative.

This pillow is: Safe. Drug Free. Portable. Easy. Durable. Inexpensive. I’ve used these Swedish Acupressure pillows for years, and I can attest to how well they work at reducing pain.
