Pillows have been with us for a long time, but they started off as a luxury item in the bedrooms of the wealthy and powerful. At times they have been banned (as in Tudor England, when women were only permitted to use them in childbirth) and they have been filled with material as diverse as wood (I've personally seen wooden pillows, in Samoa) and straw. And today, while many of them are standard bag filled with foam, there are a wide range of different pillows and the filling varies from natural feathers to man-made space age materials approved by NASA.
Once you are aware of your physical comfort needs and the types of pillow fibers you prefer then you can go ahead and begin making an educated choice between numerous types of pillows available in the market. Choosing the right bed pillow is as important as choosing the right mattress. Take your time to try out different pillows and don't be afraid to test them out for a night or two before making your final choice.
Shoulder problems are often caused by referred pain from the neck. Therefore, the stabilization of the neck during sleep is of utmost importance! Put some thought into choosing a good pillow - In addition to finally achieve the dream of a great night, you can end up saving yourself from neck and shoulder pain too!
Apart from comfort, pillows offer a range of health benefits. Most pillows offer support for your spine and neck. Depending on the position in which you sleep, different pillows may be suitable. If you sleep on your back, you might be looking for a thin contour one to support your neck and spine. Apart from the universal benefit of the different pillows (supporting your neck and spine), there are certain pillows that specifically offer other types of health benefits. There are certain pillows that comprise of herbs such as Lupin. These benefit different areas of the body depending on where they are placed. Additionally, certain temperature sensitive pillows maybe used to offer temperature therapy. Another example of a therapeutic pillow is magnetic pillows. Magnetic fields are known to offer various health benefits such as improving the overall quality of your sleep, alleviating blockage and irritation in your sinuses and providing muscle relief by reducing strain.
Everyone has a special way that we feel is the most comfortable way to sleep. Because of this, choosing a Bed Pillow is a unique experience for each of us. The first thing to do before selecting a pillow to sleep on, is to determine your favorite sleeping position. Some of us like to sleep on our sides, some on our backs and some on our stomachs. There are different pillows suited for all of these positions.
If you have the right pillow under your head at night you will feel the best way during the day. Everybody knows that a person needs to have a healthy sleep in order to be in a good mood and health. But few of us know how to choose the correct type.
