A spiked Spoonk? What in the heck is a Spoonk? And why would you want to get spiked by one?
Spoonk is an acupressure massage mat with over 6000 plastic spikes (they call them stimulation points, or flowerets) embedded in it, which are claimed to stimulate the body’s acupressure points, which in turn releases pleasurable endorphins, enables relaxation and better sleep, stimulates blood circulation, boosts energy, and reduces pain.
The Spoonk mat is based on the principles of acupressure and Japanese Shiatsu massage, and the spikes stimulate specific reflex points on the body, which are said to “release blocked energy, ease tense muscles and create deep mental and physical relaxation”. The mats were recently named the “Best Alternative Remedy” for pain relief by Dr. Oz, and the head coach for the U.S. Olympic triathlon team, Humberto Olivo, says he uses the Spoonk after hard training sessions and recommends it to all his athletes.
Spoonk mats are made from non-toxic materials and are available in a cotton or a hemp/cotton blend, starting at $59.99.
And as a plus, if you buy one, you can start throwing the word Spoonk into your conversations, using such unforgettable lines as “I’m gonna go get spoonked” or “Man, I was spoonking last night, and it was amazing!”
