The SAMINA Sleep System is essentially the eco mattress health nuts choose for their bed because it offers plenty of health benefits. From back pain to allergies, the SAMINA system is much more than just an eco mattress and has advantages for everyone looking to upgrade their sleep. The products we produce are all unique one-offs. Each individual slat made from pliant ash is tested for quality and carefully integrated without glue. Each topper, each blanket and each pillow is filled by hand and finished by sewing an elaborate cross stitch to hold the wool in place and prevent bunching and balling. This also prevents cold bridges, or gaps, from the more commonplace inflexible lock-stitch seams.
SAMINA can effectively reduce or eliminate back pain caused by a lack of support in bed. Many of our customers decided to make the investment because of their own back issues: post-surgical pain; injuries and accidents; weight gain; extended sitting in office chair; and excessive standing or walking. The patented slat system contours to your spine supporting its natural shape all night long. A bed with no back support can actually cause problems where there were none in the first place. On average, you spend about 7 to 9 hours nightly in bed. In the wrong bed, this is long-term stress on your back! That’s why SAMINA is one of the best mattresses for back support that money can buy. SAMINA slats are a game changer when it comes to giving your back the support it needs.
We all sweat as part of our natural detoxification especially when we sleep. SAMINA has an open-air design like no other bed. With open air circulation, breathable layers and materials including natural wool fibers, the right conditions exist to help you sleep dry and not have your sleep disrupted due to sweating. According to the results of a study conducted by the University of Leeds, wool bedding helps normalize sleepers’ temperature noticeably more than feather, down or polyester fibers. The humanely harvested wool used exclusively in SAMINA bedding products is the sweaty sleepers answer to overheating while sleeping.
We describe this phenomenon as “self-regulating” because two different people sharing the same bed and bedding can maintain their individual body temperatures and sleep more comfortably. In our experience, many couples suffer a classic conflict over temperature in bed and SAMINA’s wool bedding materials help couples sleep together in harmony again.
As a leading sleep scientist and medical doctor, Professor Dr. William C. Dement of Stanford University declared that up to 90% of our health depends on our sleep. Studies have shown that sleep deprivation has the same diminishing effects on your immune system as physical stress or illness which and by now, most people are aware of the benefits of a good night’s rest for the health of their immune system, stress management, and illness prevention. However, most people are unaware of the detoxification benefits from healthy sleep. Recent research has suggested that the brain flushes out toxins during sleep. According to the National Institutes of Health, “sleep changes the cellular structure of the brain.” The space between brain cells increases during sleep, allowing the brain to flush out toxins that accumulate during waking hours. Flushing out these toxins has many positive effects, such as decreasing your risk of heart disease and lowering your blood pressure.
According to the famous osteopathic physician, Dr. Mercola, proper sleep can help people who suffer from chronic diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, GERD, kidney disease, and even behavioral problems in children. Researchers also point out that our modern horizontal sleeping position may be a major cause of a number of health disorders and diseases. The natural products of the entire healthy sleep product line by SAMINA were developed with a singular mission in mind: to help promote health while sleeping. But SAMINA has even gone further by using the powerful forces of nature with SAMINA’s GRAVITY Inclined Bed. The GRAVITY Inclined Bed enhances detoxification and regeneration. Click here read more.
Where you sleep is what you breathe. Are you sleeping in a chemical factory or fresh mountain air? SAMINA is handcrafted in the Vorarlberg mountains in Austria where the air is clean and pure. The production center is spotless and the lack of petroleum-fueled machinery helps assure the purity of the natural and organic materials used in every SAMINA healthy sleep product from Austria to your bedroom. We have uncompromisingly high purity standards and the lack of petrochemicals and other irritants abundant in most mattresses but absent in SAMINA is already certain to help you breathe better. Beyond that, the system is “self-cleaning” with its open-air design and breathability of materials so that moisture does not remain trapped inside but simply evaporates into the ambient air. A dry bed is less prone to grow uninvited guests like dust mites, mold, bacteria, and smelly mildew. Furthermore, the high content of lanolin in SAMINA’s wool is a natural deterrent to dust mites that colonize in the deep materials and synthetic covers of conventional mattresses. Noteworthy (and totally gross) is the fact that dust mite fecal matter is a widespread human irritant and allergen. So if you have any kind of breathing difficulty or you find yourself congested or itchy when you wake up, consider your bed the culprit. SAMINA sleepers collectively report sleeping better and breathing better.
The unique double-slatted, freely suspended wood slat frame not only perfectly contours to each sleeper’s own spine providing optimal support but also lends itself to unique customization. For example, a man with extremely broad shoulders often finds discomfort when sleeping on his side. Our Shoulder Bolster can be added in place of several slats to soften this zone of the bed and bring comfort to side sleeping.
There are a number of other adjustments that can be made depending on the individual and even better, only one side may be changed leaving the other sleeper unaffected by the modifications. For more information about custom comfort adjustments, click here or contact a SAMINA healthy sleep advisor.
