Relieve Neck and Back Discomfort With a Memory Foam Pillow

Posted

Every day your neck works hard to hold your head up, which is no easy feat. Night should be a time of rest and rejuvenation, a time for your neck to take a break and your pillow to pick up the slack.

While this may seem relatively simple, just grab a pillow from the bargain bin at your local discount store and you’re good to go, not every pillow was created equal. There are bad pillows out there that can do more harm to your neck than help it!

Sure, when you first sink into the billowy softness of a down-filled pillow you might think, ‘Ah, that’s the stuff!’ But long before the night is over the fluff will flatten, leaving you, and your neck, in an awkward, uncomfortable position.

If your pillow isn’t doing its share of the heavy lifting at night, and you find yourself waking up feeling achy and unrested, the solution is pretty simple: you need a better pillow.

Try A Better Pillow

Sleeping in a bad position is one of the most common, and easily changed, reasons for neck and back discomfort. You can start to change that tonight by getting yourself a better pillow.

A general rule of thumb when appropriately selecting a pillow is to find a pillow that supports the natural curve of your neck. Ideally you want to make sure your neck isn’t flexing or bending unnaturally while you sleep.Your ears, shoulders, and hips should be aligned, as should your neck, lower back, and chest.

One of the best types of pillows to achieve this goal is a memory foam pillow.

The Memory Foam Pillow Advantage

Memory foam pillows are made from soft, premium polyurethane foam that will go back to its original shape once pressure is released. During use the foam will mold itself to your pressure from your body to give you support where you need it most. And it maintains its shape over time, unlike other types of pillows. *

Other ways that you benefit from memory foam**:

●No matter what sleeping position you take over a night’s sleep, a memory foam pillow will provide support where you need it. No need for more than one pillow for a single night’s rest.

●Memory foam pillows are hypoallergenic and help protect you from common allergens like dust and dust mites.

●Memory foam pillows help regulate temperature with an open-cell structure that allows air to flow freely, keeping you cooler than traditional pillows.

●And the biggest advantage to using a memory foam pillow is that it helps keep your spine in alignment, which, in turn, helps relieve discomfort.

The Best Memory Foam Pillow

One of the best memory foam pillows on the market today is Phiten’s Shiatsu Pillow with Aqua-Gold Technology.

The Shiatsu Pillow is a contoured memory foam pillow with embedded silicone spheres at nine key head and neck acupressure points.The pillow is concave at the right place to lift your neck and make sure you’re aligned correctly.

The Aqua-Gold silicone spheres are what make this pillow a “shiatsu” pillow. They line up with pressure points on the back of your head and neck to stimulate and help remove energy blocks and restore balance. Activating these pressure points can help relieve stiffness and discomfort naturally by helping your body’s energy circulate smoothly and without interruption.

Plus, the Shiatsu Pillow is ventilated with wavy slits to ensure air flow and temperature regulation, so you don’t overheat.

Get A Good Night’s Sleep

A good night’s sleep is essential to good health and well being. And a big part of sleeping well is making sure your body is in the best position to heal as you rest.

Investing in a good, really good, pillow is an easy, non-invasive way to get the type of sleep that will rejuvenate and revive your body.
