We are proud for our Sammi Therapeutic Pillows to have been featured as one of the sleep products in American Ways’ Sleep Section. American Ways is American Airlines’ official on-board magazine and the special Sleep Section appeared in its June 2018 issue.
The Sleep Doctor™, Michael J. Breus, PhD @ thesleepdoctor.com, was the featured sleep expert being interviewed. When asked, “Dr. Breus, does spinal alignment really matter?,” he answered, “YES. When your spine is aligned, the muscles attached to it will relax and allow themselves to repair.”
This is exactly what our Sammi Therapeutic Pillows are designed to do, which is to promote the natural curvature of the cervical spine, whether side sleeping or back sleeping. Our Pillows do this by providing the correct support for your neck. They are the only pillows with an internal structure of walls and compartments that are filled with buckwheat hulls that can be adjusted in height and comfort to match your individual anatomy. As a result, your neck muscles relax while resting your neck, head and shoulders on our Pillows.
Asked, “If my spine is aligned, will I sleep any better?” Dr. Breus responded, “YES, and here is why: When your spine is misaligned, it causes pain over time. Pain disrupts sleep. A better-aligned spine should lead to higher quality sleep.”
We agree. That is why we call our Gen 2 Prestige model the Sammi Deep Sleep Pillow! Our Pillows are filled with premium, 100% organic buckwheat hulls grown in the USA. They are hypoallergenic, naturally ventilating and antimicrobial and provide a 3-D structure that interlock together to hold the position inside the multiple compartments of the primary pillow to provide the cervical spine alignment needed for sleep without strained muscles that sooner than later cause pain.
When asked, “Does my sleep position really matter for choosing a mattress?”, Dr. Breus said, “YES” and added that the best position for sleeping is on the side. He said, “The spinal column is allowed to rest in its natural way (assuming the correct pillow is being used)....” He also said that “The big advantage to back sleeping is that your weight is distributed over a large surface resulting in better pressure distribution.”
