A comfortable sleep has a lot to do with the shape of your body and whether it’s being properly supported at night. Over time the mattresses we own lose their suppleness and structure. This is especially true of foam and spring mattresses that suffer from wear and tear over the years.
When you lay on a saggy mattress your spine curves in a convex motion, resulting in a sore back and muscles the following day. To reduce the risk of hurting your back, you should instead choose a mattress that curves with the natural s-shape of your spine. Fortunately, this is where SAMINA comes in.
SAMINA recommends always choosing a doctor recommended mattress when back pain is part of your consideration. You should also be discerning about the materials, the chemical load and design before choosing. If you’re considering a new mattress to regain control of your back pain, here’s what you should know.
Mattresses That Move with Your Body
For a long time, mattresses with sturdy stiffness were thought to be best for your back. Then, for a while, foam that molded to your every movement was voted best mattress material. Now, we know that neither of these components makes the best mattress because your body requires both support and elasticity to truly benefit from a luxury mattress.
SAMINA natural rubber mattresses are a great combination of flexible support. The porous, malleable material, which is reinforced by the frame beneath it, offers a supple comfortable foundation to rest your back. The natural rubber forms to your unique curves without completely losing its shape in the process. In fact, the certified organic talalay rubber used exclusively in SAMINA mattresses is known for its high-point elasticity, i.e., not forming dents but springing back to its original shape.
Mattress Toppers to Regulate Heat
Once you have the perfect green mattress in place, it’s time to consider what goes on top of that mattress to give not only support but also comfort because the end game here is not just a back that’s not sore when you wake up in the morning but a body that is well-rested from head to toe. A climate regulating wool pad is the perfect source of moisture-wicking, antimicrobial protection, and temperature control.
Back pain is often regulated by heat and cold being applied at varying intervals. Retaining a comfortable body temperature during sleep keeps your back from getting overheated or too cold before the night is through. This supports a good night’s rest and encourages regeneration at the cellular level.
Mattress Pads for Grounding
Biohacking is essentially self-experimentation for the purposes of altering chemistry or physiology to optimize one’s state of health and wellbeing. SAMINA is a popular choice for biohackers for many reasons including that we offer the perfect biohacking tool with our LOKOSANA grounding pad. This eco-friendly mattress pad is designed to harness the bioelectrical energy in the earth and store it beneath your body in your bed mimicking direct contact with the earth to bring it back into balance by neutralizing free radicals.”
Believe it or not, grounding is fully supported by the scientific community, and sleeping on a grounded mattress pad has advantages for your back. According to recent research, the electromagnetic energy we receive from the earth offers immune system support, wound healing advantages, and reduces inflammation.
For those experiencing chronic back pain, the reduction of inflammation could provide lasting relief.
Orthopedic Slatted Bed Frame
It may not be a mattress, but it’s what provides your mattress with the support it needs to relieve back pain and keep you going through the day. Orthopedics is the medical practice focusing on bones and joints. Choosing a bed with orthopedic support is a good indicator that your back will find relief.
At SAMINA we sell more than just a top of the line luxury mattress, we also sell customizable SAMINA slats for the healthiest sleep you’re back will ever have. SAMINA slats are designed to place support where you need it most depending on your height, weight, and type of back pain.
With the slats in place for orthopedic support, you will also need to address comfort, circulation and temperature for the best night ever. All that is offered by SAMINA with a non-toxic mattress, a climate regulating wool pad, and for extra coziness, you can add our bioactive duvet. The addition of orthopedic pillows means you’re in for the best sleep of your life.
