Pressing thousands of tiny spikes into sore areas is a powerful sensation in the beginning. But that’s because it’s meant to be. Shakti spikes activate your body’s ability to restore itself and turn discomfort into relaxation. A one-purchase wellness tool for any wind-down or recovery routine.
Shredded foam is perfect for targeting different areas with the right amount of pressure. It creates a plush, dense pillow you can precisely mold and shape into tension. Soft enough to sink into, yet firm enough to push back.

Sink into the sensation faster. Soft, strong, and GOTS-certified. Responsibly dyed and stitched by hand with no toxic chemicals or compromise.
Signature Shakti spikes
Shakti spikes are the sharpest so you can get to the point fast. They’ll release the deepest tension in minutes and remain as beautiful as they are effective.
What you need to know
• Apply targeted relief to hard-to-reach areas
• Extend your Shakti Mat up your shoulders, neck and head
• Increase circulation and restore muscles fast
• Sleep deeper and wake up refreshed
• Minimize stress and block out mental chatter
There are two ways to get the most from this Pillow:
1. With your Shakti Mat, in bed, before sleep. Lie down with the Pillow at the top of your Shakti Mat and use your hands to shape it into the areas of your shoulders, neck, and head that carry the most tension.
2. Nestle it into the side of your body or tuck it into any tense area while you relax on the couch or work at your desk. The possibilities are endless, but some of our favorites include:
• Under your hamstrings
• Base of your spine
• Side of your face
15-20 minutes is usually all you need to increase circulation and restore a natural flow of energy, but you can absolutely go for longer.
As part of your purchase, you’ll receive access to our free app, Shakti Shala, to help guide you through the experience. You can also find ways to get started on our how to use page.
The initial sensation is prickly, but after a few minutes the feeling melts into a tingly warmth as circulation increases.
After 15-20 minutes the real reward kicks in. Your body relaxes, tension washes away, your breath deepens, and you may fall asleep.
If you already own a Mat, the Pillow completes your Shakti experience.
