There’s nothing quite like the feeling of waking up from a deep, restorative sleep. And if you happen to suffer from bouts of sleeplessness, then you will appreciate this feeling even more!

There are a number of things that can contribute towards a good night’s sleep; exercise, healthy diet, and meditation to name a few. But there is one crucial factor that many people overlook in the quest for the perfect night’s sleep. A good quality mattress.

Mattresses are a vital component of restorative rest at night. When mattresses become old, unsupportive or worn, they can cause sleeplessness, aching joints and poor spinal alignment. If you’ve been looking for a new mattress then you may have heard of memory foam.

Memory foam was first developed in the 1960s by NASA to be used in aeroplane seats. It was specifically designed to mould to the body, absorbing energy and evenly distributing weight. This means that it is ideal for anyone with soreness, joint pains or general body aches.

As the foam distributes the weight of the person lying on it, it makes it possible to maintain a good posture. In a poor-quality mattress, the body has to work hard to keep the spine aligned, causing stress on the muscles and leading to sleeplessness. When the body is in the correct alignment without having to work at it, it can fully relax into a great night’s sleep.

For those who suffer from allergies, memory foam provides welcome relief. The fibres that make up memory foam prevent allergy-causing dust mites from settling in as there is no food for them to thrive on. Used in conjunction with a good quality mattress protector, memory foam mattresses are the ideal choice for those who suffer from allergies.

Some memory foam mattresses are infused with cool gel technology, which means that they are able to regulate the temperature of the person sleeping on them. This technology prevents the sleeper from overheating and helps to maintain a regular temperature throughout the night.

When memory foam is combined with pocket sprung technology, it creates the ultimate sleep surface. Take a look at our range of hybrid mattresses and give your body the gift of restorative sleep.
