Sleep is critical to our body’s daily recovery process. Our bodies recover and regenerate from the day’s stressors and activities. A quality pillow will help maintain correct body alignment so we get a restful night’s sleep.
When we’re sleeping it is important to maintain the neck’s natural curve. If the height of a pillow is too high, our neck becomes bent abnormally forward or to the side, which can cause strain in the neck and shoulder muscles. Neck muscles can also become strained if a pillow is too low. A pillow fit to your body type keeps your head, neck, and shoulders aligned to relieve pressure points and pain throughout the night. Proper alignment also reduces the chance of snoring and obstructed breathing due to narrowing of the air pipe.
Why You Should Be Fitted For Your Next Pillow
Pillows are not one size fits all. Today, there are a number of styles and sizes to fit your specific sleep position and body type. Where the ContourSide Pillow is perfect for side sleepers, another style, such as the TEMPUR-Neck Pillow, may be a preferred fit for someone who sleeps on their back. For those who sleep hot, a Technogel Pillow can provide cooling comfort. Do you sleep on a soft, pillowy mattress or a firm mattress? Have broad shoulders or a petite body frame? Our sleep experts can help you determine which pillow is best for you based on your specific sleep patterns and body type.
