If you struggle to sleep through the night, keep reading. This one change could actually help you sleep through the night.
I have a friend and client (let’s call her Jessica) who for the past several months would tell me how she has poor sleeping pattern. Meaning, she just can’t sleep through the night. She relates it to stress. Too much on her mind.
She has come to the clinic in the past for hand pain, elbow pain, even back pain. Yet, when it came to helping her with her sleeping, she didn’t think that therapy would or could actually help.
I only tell that part, because I know that most people often think of coming to occupational therapy or physical therapy when they have a great deal of pain or surgery.
If I may challenge you though. You don’t have to wait to be in pain to get our help.
We have an extra set of eyes that can see what you can’t see. We also have strategies based on what you tell us your difficulties are and knowledge base to help you specifically to help improve how you live.
Jessica was getting increasingly frustrated that even with a new bed, dark curtains, and exercise – that she was still struggling to sleep through the night.
Here are TWO pieces of advice that I shared with her:
- Remove the amount of pillows you have under your head
- Try our Pillowise pillows
She came to the clinic and got measured for our pillows. Tried them out. Purchased one.
Three days later, she texted me “I’ve slept through the night for the past 3 nights. I don’t know why you didn’t tell me sooner!”
These two pieces of advice alone has given her endless nights of great sleep.
Why Pillowise pillows?
Pillowise pillows are measured to fit your shape. The size and height of your neck and shoulders. How you like to sleep are also taken into account to fit you with the pillow that fits you.
That’s what I really love about them. I use them as well in my house.
Funny, story with Jessica. She was fitted for he size pillow, but wanted to try a different one that was “bigger”. I was able to take side by side pictures to show even a small slight incline can mess up great alignment when sleeping.
Clearly, she’s extremely happy with the pillow that was measured to fit her.
So, if you are someone who’s struggling to get a full nights’ sleep or who’s having some neck and shoulder problems, ask us about these pillows! There’s no commitment to buy anything.Hoang
