Tempur-Pedic pillow: may be the ticket to better sleep!

If you’re checking into getting a Tempur-Pedic pillow, join the club! Thousands of us have looked to getting Tempur-Pedic pillows to help lessen the back pain and discomfort that go with improper sleeping posture.

You might be wondering how did these pillows even come to be. Would you believe that it took NASA to help solve our sleeping problems here on earth?

They needed to come up with a dense foam material that could actually sense the body temperature and weight of the astronauts, and give them overall body support without pressure points during periods of increased G-forces that occur during takeoffs and re-entries.

Eventually the ‘memory foam’ pillow was developed from this material. Then another inventive soul molded it into the contoured-shape.

Tempur-Pedic is probably the most famous brand name associated with these types of pillows. They were the first to bring it to the public and remain a trusted name in the industry.

The Tempur-Pedic line of pillows feature: •neck pillows (with different sizes available) •travel pillows (to wrap around and support your neck while traveling)

These same types of pillows are made by other companies that call them other names:

•contour pillows     •cervical pillows     •orthopedic pillows     •memory foam pillows

All of them have the familiar dual-sided shape that you know. Why are these pillows so popular?

•The contour shape built into this pillow supports and aligns or neck and spine correctly, unlike typical pillows that are just flat- or may actually lift the head and force us into uncomfortable positions.

•We have better overall circulation with this pillow-our bodies are allowed to lay correctly, and pressure points are reduced so that we don’t toss, turn and even snore like we may with other typical pillows.

•The foam actually responds to your body heat, and then molds into the perfect contoured shape that cradles your head and neck.

•These pillows are hypoallergenic, because they resist mold and bacteria, and are easily washable. Quiet possibly the perfect pillow. And you don’t even need to be an astronaut to have one!
