The Hunt For The Perfect Pillow
The most difficult question I get from clients is what kind of pillow should I sleep on? It is difficult because everyone is so different.
I can assure you I have had to massage many a knotted up neck due to bad pillows!
I had found a great orthopedic pillow at a local bed shop about 3 years ago. It served me well I slept well and no neck pain and my neck is my trouble area from past injuries so I need the proper support.
I am a mostly back sleeper and sometimes on the side… recently I started to notice neck pain and jaw tension about 3 months ago… what could this be I thought. Am I stressed, it was the holidays, I had been working out very hard leading up to my recent wedding, maybe I over did it???
Ah Ha it was my pillow I realized! So now I am back to a sad feather pillow which has no support and is feeling better then the orthopedic pillow had, which shows how bad it was and I didn’t realize!
This just will not do!
The hunt is on for a new pillow. One that will support my neck but not lift my head up too much and also allow me to sleep on my side with proper head position. I know it’s out there I just have to find it.
Wish me luck… now where do I go shopping first?
