How are you sleeping? Is your bedroom your sanctuary? Perhaps like me you do not sleep as well as you could? I want to introduce you to something that has helped improve my comfort and my night’s sleep. I am delighted to share my review of the Reflex Pillow with you.
The Reflex Pillow
All too often I don’t buy pillows often enough or I compromise to save money. This results in pillows that are no comfy and don’t last for long. I am learning that it is important to invest in myself as well as my husband and children. I am also working out that good sleep really is vital for our health and wellbeing.
The Reflex Pillow is something that lives up to its claims in my experience. It is just right as it is firm but also moulds to your head so it feels soft and squishy but also supportive. That’s exactly the right balance.
The story of the Reflex Pillow
A Cork inventor and back specialist achieved phenomenal success in 2016 on crowdfunding with The Reflex Pillow which currently sits in the top 10 most successfully funded Irish Kickstarter campaigns, having raised over €80,000 from backers.
Less than two years later, Reflex Pillow introduces a brand new pillow to its range doubling its target on Kickstarter this time round. The Perfection Pillow is now available online together with a range of accessories.
With over thirty years experience as a specialist in the treatment of neck and back pain, Noel O’Connor noticed a pattern in his patients finding that the pillow used was the biggest culprit in neck conditions. Having treated more than 30,000 patients during his career, Noel then spent fifteen years conducting various pressure sensitivity tests on feather, memory foam, and polyester-stuffed pillows before creating the ‘magic’ formulated blend of materials for the optimal pillow which would come to be known as ‘Reflex Foam’.
How the Reflex Pillow works
With a head dip that is designed to keep the spine aligned and a dedicated shoulder slot, the pillow ensures the optimal positioning for your head, neck and shoulders. By supporting the upper body, neck and shoulder muscles are spared any stress and strain as you sleep which improves blood circulation and redistributes your body weight to help prevent stiffness. The stability of the head dip,ensures that you’re less likely to toss and turn during the night, whether lying on your back or sides.By ensuring the optimum positioning for your head, neck and back the Reflex Pillow can also reduce or eradicate snoring and sleep apnoea by improving the uptake of oxygen while sleeping.
“Inappropriate pillows do not support the anatomy of the human body so it’s not surprising that sleep science has turned to pillows as a major focus” says Noel O’Connor “While your mattress may support your lower spine, the soft tissue of your upper spine and neck requires even more support. ”
The Perfection Pillow
Fifteen months after the introduction of the original Reflex Pillow, Noel launched Perfection Pillow on Kickstarter which doubled its backing target. Perfection has an enhanced the formulation to further reduce stress on the upper neck while sleeping by allowing the position of the head tro be held in extension for the duration on contact. The new Perfection Pillow has all the benefits of the original, complemented by improved cushioning and support. The pillow is patented and medically certified and protected with a luxurious zippered pillowcase. Also in the range are silk pillowcases and a handy travel bag into which the pillow can be rolled and taken away if required.
So if you want to indulge in some good sleep and self-care, I highly recommend the Reflex Pillow because it is working for me and my husband reports teeth grinding is not as bad as it was either so all good for marital harmony too.
